isn’t a contempt resolution; it authorizes Rep. Nadler to file lawsuits to enforce specific subpoenas but, unfortunately, shifts to leadership the power to authorize future enforcement lawsuits, further centralizing the House’s authority and undermining the institution.

House rules aren’t clear on whether a vote of the House is required to authorize these lawsuits, but that’s been our practice. instead says that a vote of House leadership to authorize these lawsuits “is the equivalent of a vote of the full House of Representatives.”

Today I voted for a critical resolution that will hold the Trump Administration accountable for its blatant refusal to comply with congressional subpoenas.

You got money to waste on lawyers to file lawsuits. You are putting too much time on , Congressman Justin Amash. If didn’t mark you present during the 9/11 victims' compensation fund bill hearing testimony, then you don’t care of first responders.

He explained his vote on his Twitter page. tried to shift power to leadership, thus “centralizing the House’s authority and undermining the institution.” It wasn’t a vote to hold Barr and McGahn in contempt, as has been reported. Amash is nothing if not principled.

Unlike a contempt resolution, does not hold anyone in contempt of Congress. It allows for lawsuits to enforce subpoenas. Civil contempt of court is a possible outcome from this process, but this resolution does not in itself produce that outcome.

Cool! Now all you need to do is find judge who doesn’t know/care about separation of powers. After the other half of the legislative branch - the Senate- votes for of course.

urges a YES vote on , Authorizing Judiciary Committee to initiate or intervene in judicial proceedings to enforce certain subpoenas (specifically dealing with AG Barr & Don McGahn). Complying with subpoenas should not be optional. Period.

As a 38-year voting centrist Democrat, I concur with that is bad. My reasons for believing it to be wrong are very different that Rep. Amash’s. First, read it for yourself. It’s not lengthy and doesn’t require a law degree... CONT.

These are powers those leaders already have, in practice, though? just clarifies and expedites their use, as I understand it? There is still judicial oversight happening externally, as well.
