Chairman Bob Goodlatte Discusses 7 Months of Refusals by Lisa Page To Comply With Congressional Subpoena(s)…

Apparently the intransigence of former DOJ lawyer, and special counsel to Deputy FBI Director McCabe, Lisa Page has quite a history.

Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte, says the former FBI lawyer has been in complete defiance of cooperation with the House, rejects Page’s excuse that she hasn’t had enough time to prepare:

Updated Statement from Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte below:

Washington, D.C. – Lisa Page, legal counsel to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, defied a congressional subpoena issued by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.). She is a key witness in the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees’ investigation into decisions made by the Justice Department in 2016. Her attorney provided a litany of excuses for Ms. Page’s failure to appear today, but none of the excuses hold water.

Excuse: Lisa Page was not provided sufficient notice to prepare for the deposition.

Reality: On December 19, 2017, Chairmen Goodlatte and Gowdy sent a letter to the Justice Department requesting to interview Lisa Page. That’s seven months ago. Another letter was sent in April 2018. Committee staff have been in direct contact with Ms. Page’s attorney since June 2018 and she and her attorney refused to commit to a date for an interview. Consequently, Chairman Goodlatte subpoenaed Lisa Page.

Excuse: The Committees would be asking Lisa Page about materials she has not yet reviewed.

Reality: Many of the documents Lisa Page would be asked about are documents and communications that she created. Additionally, these very same materials were provided to Ms. Page during her interview with the Inspector General. Despite being aware of the Committees’ request for a transcribed interview for seven months, Ms. Page and her attorney waited until yesterday afternoon to go to the FBI to review documents, just hours before her scheduled deposition. In fact, it is the Committee’s understanding that Ms. Page never requested access to view the documents until the FBI reached out to her.

Excuse: The scope of the interview was too broad for Lisa Page, and should have been narrowed.

Reality: The scope covers Ms. Page’s involvement in the matters pertaining to the Committees’ investigation into decisions made by the Justice Department and the FBI in 2016, and her role related to those decisions. That was clearly communicated to Ms. Page. Ms. Page was involved in both the Mid-Year Exam and Russia investigations, and is a key fact witness for the Committee.  (read more)

          He’s acting 100% out of place. It is not the role of the DOJ to vet an already thoroughly vetted supreme court nominee.

          This will serve to massively delay confirmation as the senate will vote to wait until the investigations are over.

          On the other hand, if they come back quickly and say “okay, he’s clean as a whistle” and then the rest of the politicos come back with “oh! look at this skeleton we just found!?” No, nothing would prevent that from happening anyway.

          The FBI “decided not to prosecute” Hillary and now the DOJ is in the business of vetting Supreme Court nominees. These are powers not given to these groups.

          Meanwhile, the congress isn’t arresting people who refuse to appear before them under subpoena.

        No, it’s not a trap, just a blatantly obvious attempt to undermine the SCOTUS nominee, and he will very likely get away with it. Somehow, Sessions will avoid any responsibility for it, and not interfere with RR, “a good, honorable man.”

        There will be so many Dem/resistance USAs participating that a lengthy litany of damning misrepresentations and falsehoods will be provided to the Dems and the media in an effort to stop the confirmation.

        RR has been operating in the open for months as a deep state facilitator/protector. This act should surprise only the naive observer.

With notice of the likely intentions of the bad actors that will be counted in significant numbers of USAs, especially those selected by pro-resistance superiors, the President will clearly see what is coming and, I believe, have an effective strategy for not allowing it to derail the nomination. The SCOTUS nominations are deadly serious business to him.

        Elena Kagan had all of her emails scrutinized which took some time. Kavanaugh has 300+ written opinions, was involved with Ken Starr during the Clinton investigation and authored some of those reports and a couple of decades of emails to review. It is going to be a time sucker and will need lots of man hours. I think RR is a dirtbag, however he appears to be doing the right thing, getting stuff done. The biggest question is where the hell is Sessions? I have not been one of the Sessions naysayers, because I believed he was performing his job out of the public eye. Perhaps there is a very good reason for him to not be involved, however this task fits squarely on his shoulders and I would prefer him doing this than RR.

      Nothing less than a Mueller-inspired, if not Mueller-directed, WITCH HUNT to try to, if not destroy, Mr. Kavanaugh’s chances of being confirmed for the Supreme Court, then at least to delay the Senate vote on his nomination until next January, by which time the Democrats/UniParty RINO’s believe they will have enough Senators to toss the nomination out.
      The goal here for Rosenstein is like Muller’s: find ONE WORD out of ONE SENTENCE that can be twisted to “prove” that Mr. Kavanaugh is “guilty” of something like, for example, “condoning sexual harassment”. Limbaugh hinted as much on his radio show today.

        I think it runs deeper than that. RR is commanding his troops to come in and way-slow down the process, he has experience at this. Intent is to supply an excuse for the RINO Senators to hide behind, so they can push off confirmation vote. Grassley has the gavel, but the RINOS will be able to say, “My conscience and sense of fairness wont let me vote now, when there is so much more we must review on this mans background”.

        If Rosenstain, Sessions and Mueller attempt to insert a delay in Kavanaugh’s confirmation, then he should withdraw himself from the nomination. President Trump’s momentum in implementing MAGA is a top priority. The pre-election confirmation of the new SCOTUS Justice bolsters the President’s chances of picking up a few democrat defectors. There are 3 runners-up that could take Kavanaugh’s place this time around, and there will almost certainly be one more vacancy for the President to fill.

        Brilliant as he may be, Judge Kavanaugh is after all a seasoned swamp wriggler. He is probably a Bonesman, Bush against Gore interventionist, Ken Starr assistant in #Slick’s failed impeachment conviction. McCain & McChina are delighted with his nomination, which gives me pause. We shall see how things go from here. The President’s demeanor during the nomination ceremony seemed (to me) quite different than during Justice Gorsuch’s nomination ceremony.

        The DOJ, FBI, 17 IC agencies need a wrecking ball, followed by consolidation, all management removed 5 layers down, and placed within military management.

        The 5 eyes alliance needs a top down review after this witch hunt.

    If she has nothing to hide then she won’t mind a 3:00am no-knock visit from the Federal Marshall Service? While they’re at it they can raid the offices of Perkins Coi and finally get to the bottom of the witch hunt, as in Democrat plan to take down President Trump.

      Hmmmm. Let’s see, does this issue, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok touch either 2016 campaign for President? Why yes it does. Therefore this issue will not come across Sessions’ desk as he is recused from said campaigns. But you already knew that Jack, didn’t you?

      Congress is not going to do anything, like usual, they will grandstand and make great sound clips for MSM, and nothing will happen. Their threats mean nothing to Rosenstein or Mueller or Lisa Page.

      This issue, Congress vs Executive is not so cut and dry. We do NOT have enough information to say with certainty that Congress is right or wrong with these document requests and subpoenas. Why? Because despite what Hannity and Team-Derp is telling you, there is no such thing as Constitutional Oversight. It is a myth and has always been used by (D) Congresses to harass and hamstring (R) administrations. Will everyone be defending Congress if God forbid, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer are doing the demanding and subpoena’ing? I sure hope not. I have tried to warn folks to stop praying for justice from Legislative Branch. They were not given that function from the Framers. Their job is legislating, and running for re-election, and has expanded to grandstanding and bloviating recently.

      It would help if there were competent interviewers asking real questions of Nunes and the others so we can get some real information, but that will never happen. Absent hard evidence we must assume that President Trump and White House counsel are walking a tightrope between protecting the Executive Branch’s independence ( Separation of Powers, a term that does not mean what Team-Derp thinks it means ) by not dangerously handing over stuff to congress that they will regret if the (D)ouchebags regain control. If that happens a whole lot of people will regret their incessant daily derping. Then all of a sudden the Enemedia will shift to attacking Trump for wrongly claiming Executive Privilege to block Congress requests. Wann know a good rule of thumb? When something seems so simple that you can construct an easy scapegoat to appease your frustration, then it probably isn’t that simple.

      If we had a good AG things would be different, most of this stuff the last 2 years would have been handled, people arrested and charged, and some of the people would plea bargain to get the bigger fish.

      In real life, people get arrested and charged when caught in the process of committing a crime. Then they get arraigned and see a judge to make a plea and decide if bail is necessary, etc. When you see Lisa Page shoplifting or driving drunk then this procedure will occur. But this is NOT what is happening here.

      We’re in the Federal arena with crimes that are governed by the Fifth Amendment ( among others ) which means an indictment must be handed up by a Grand Jury before any arrest, charge and trial takes place. The crimes are mostly in the District of Criminals so that means the trial will take place there absent a rare change of venue ( so will the earlier Grand Jury, although that may be legally held be outside DC ). If you know some secret way to get a conviction of a leftist in a district full of leftists then please contact DoJ headquarters and let them know. These circumstances are exactly what DoJ decision makers and prosecutors are dealing with as hated outsiders based in a district at least 93% full of O.J. jurors. Stop being so flippant with your comments about a near-impossible task.

      Jeff Sessions is a disgrace, Trump told us that, and many people believe that now (there really is a hugh list of Trump Talking Heads that think Jeff Sessions is a disgrace).

          Page subpoena. How can it be any clearer? Page and Strzok are knee deep in the 2016 campaigns for President ( why did you say “Russian interference”? Sessions is recused from issues touching either campaign, period ). This issue, and many others, will NOT normally cross his desk or even enter his office. Period.

After you have gone to Wikipedia to find out there is no such thing, rather then be embarrassed at such a huge civics error ( not to mention being asleep since Ike was President when the Executive vs Congress shenanigans really began ) aim your righteous anger at Team-Derp ( Hannity, Dobbs, Jarrett, Gaslight Pundit, etc … ) who repeat these things incessantly and matriculated into your consciousness.

          Also, this is not about Congress VS. the Executive Branch, this is about Congress trying to protect the head of the Executive Branch, the President.

          As above, this is bigger than today’s news stories. Much bigger. Now tell me exactly what you would say if God forbid this coming January 3 Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer declare war on the Executive Branch ( as they always do, including every single day of the Reagan administration, as well as Ike, Nixon, Ford, Bush41 and part of Bush43 too ). Subpoenas and document requests aimed at Wilbur Ross, Zinke, Pompeo, etc. How will that affect MAGA? It will cripple it.

          So as I said, we do not have enough information to jump to the conclusion you have, that Congress is saintly and DoJ is not. They worry about precedent and separation of powers as a matter of course. But go right ahead and swallow what Team-Derp is serving up as special outrage du jour. Those of us who have been around the block know better.

          Now I know you either didn’t read or comprehend, ~sigh~. The commenter talked about arresting and charging the perps. I pointed out the steps that happen in real life for felonies. Nowhere did I imply there are no guaranteed rights for lesser crimes. Focus! Try putting yourself in the shoes of DoJ decision makers. Contemplate the long path to justice ( evidence to a grand jury, hopefully an indictment, later a trial in DC with a leftist judge and OJ jury and defense dream team ). Now contrast that reality with the simplistic comments from handwringers like “jack” ( “people arrested and charged” ). That is what I’m talking about. The DUI reference was nothing more than an example of the simplistic ‘arrest and charge’ scenario. That is not, I repeat, NOT what happens for past felonies.

            “Page subpoena. How can it be any clearer? Page and Strzok are knee deep in the 2016 campaigns for President ( why did you say “Russian interference”?”

            You do not understand that the entire Mueller investigation was implemented to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election and to see if there was collusion between Trump’s people and the Russians?

            Oh yes and Strzok was in charge of the investigation into both Hillary’s emails and this Russian interference. That was my point……

            “Sessions is recused from issues touching either campaign, period ). This issue, and many others, will NOT normally cross his desk or even enter his office. Period.”

            No, Sessions is not ‘legally’ recused from that at all. He is not legally recused from anything…..this is his little ruse on the American people.

            Read that recusal law: “The regulation, 28 CFR 45.2, notes that a Justice Department employee shall not participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a personal or political relationship with … an elected official, a candidate (whether or not successful) for elective, public office, a political party, or a campaign organization.”

            http://www.latimes.com/politics/washington/la-na-essential-washington-updates-sessions-cites-department-of-justice-1497381828-htmlstory.html

            But this is NOT a criminal investigation. It was and still is a counter-intelligence investigation. So either Sessions has gone senile and cannot read, or he is deep in the swamp and has gone rogue. Which do you think?

            “Cite the text.”

            You are simply wrong on this and you really want me to go to Wikipedia and show you? OK:

            “Congressional oversight is oversight by the United States Congress over the Executive Branch, including the numerous U.S. federal agencies. … Congress’s oversight authority derives from its “implied” powers in the Constitution, public laws, and House and Senate rules. It is an integral part of the American system of checks and balances.”

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congressional_oversight

            You need to educate yourself. This oversight is also ingrained by Case Law and the U.S. code:

            Here is one granting oversight in the case of the actions of a special counsel (i.e. Mueller):

            28 U.S. Code § 595 – Congressional oversight

            https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/28/595

            Yet, Sessions, Rosenstein and Wray have committed numerous felony accounts of obstruction of justice by denying this constitutional right of Congress to exercise oversight on them by denying them the relevant documents to do so– and Jim Johnson has even accused them of destroying these documents.

            You are not supporting honorable public servants you are supporting the worst of the swamp–common criminals. Are you beginning to see the problems I have with the post?

            BTW, I am not a groupie….I do not closely follow Hannity, Dobbs, Jarrett, or anyone else. I educate myself on these issues.

            Finally, you seem to think that there is no crime called espionage and attempting to overthrow the elected government of the United States.

            This is exactly what the DOJ/FBI attempted to do and the combined efforts of the criminals in the DOJ/FBI (almost all of the leadership) is what has brought us to this point.

            So will these democracy usurpers be prosecuted for this? Not with the clowns we have in the DOJ right now, and certainly not with people like you who fail to educate yourselves on this constitutional crises and spew falsities on the Internet as if the criminals are the victims.

Thank you for at least understanding a small part of it anyway.

              No, Sessions is not ‘legally’ recused from that at all. He is not legally recused from anything…..this is his little ruse on the American people.

              Your emoting about his “little ruse” I’m not interested in, but again you added crap I did not say. I said nothing about “legal”. Recusal is an ethical act, and is optional, it depends upon the integrity of the person. He *is* recused. It happened. And for damn good reasons which you have had explained to you in other posts. If you cannot understand it by now, after learning the scale of the espionage on the Trump campaign and number of perps whose cases would be jeopardized by having Sessions involved, not to mention the danger of obstruction charges occurring on the open pathway between Trump and a non-recused Sessions, then you will never understand it. Watergate happened to a President who was infinitely more popular ( compare: Nixon 521 electoral and 61% popular vs Trump 306 electoral and 46% popular ). Alternatively, you might understand a simpler explanation. Sessions has piles of more conflicts as AG than Reno had when she recused and appointed Fiske special counsel for Whitewater and Vince Foster. But even precedent will not shake your Sessions OCD I’m afraid.

              Read that recusal law: “The regulation …

              First of all that’s a reg, not a law, words have meaning. Secondly, you are parroting that derpaholic Greg Jarrett who is an idiot. There are bigger issues than mere regs. But even if you care about that wording, you are seeking what amounts to a loophole. That is what *guilty* people do. Trump did not collude, it is a hoax, he is not guilty. He needs no loophole for Sessions to flirt around with obstruction charges which actually endangers Trump, not Sessions. Furthermore, Sessions saw the NSD secret probes ( FISA,etc, they only did those so they could proceed roping everyone two hops to the entire campaign using intelligence apparatus and no evidence and in secret ) and Sessions knew they would eventually become *criminal* probes where that precious reg *would* apply ( think about it, they would have to become criminal to become visible and useful to the coup, or else why bother at all? ). He got in front of the coup plotters. Then Rosenstein ordered the Special Counsel which roped in under one roof most of the perps.

              So what the hell are you thinking? Sessions should have used a dubious loophole to do something even Janet Reno would not do ( she had no conflicts or relationship with the Clintons except that Bubba appointed her, but recused anyway ) and then place the President at severe risk of obstruction charges as Sessions somehow fires all the perps that no-one knew anything about 1.5 years ago? Even now with all the information uncovered it is still risky, in early 2017 no chance. That is what you Sessions Derangement Patients are advocating. It is something entirely ridiculous. Trump made this call. He decided not to clean house and ride it out. No-one below the President can make that call. If he wanted to clean house, consequences be damned, fire all the perps and squash all the probes, then he would have to tell the AG the goal. Then Sessions would either proceed or resign, period. Y’all are bonkers to think this level of action sits at the AG desk. It is the President’s call because it is his ass on the line.

              “Cite the text.” … You are simply wrong on this and you really want me to go to Wikipedia and show you? OK:

              Focus on what I said, not on what you imagined I said. There is no CONSTITUTIONAL Oversight. You quoted wikipedia, not the Constitution so you proved my point. This is an *assumed* power, one much younger than Marbury v Madison when Marshall assumed a much more famous non-Constitutional power. This is where you should have surrendered and said, ‘yeah, yer right, there is no such thing’. And you should get angry at each and every Derp-TV and Congress critter who uses that fake phrase to pressure DoJ, not to mention gaslight handwringers like yourself. We have seen lots of assumed powers and corruption of the Founding principles. Marbury, Roe, etc. And it is We The People and often the Executive Branch that suffers because of it. And that is why I brought it up. DoJ cannot surrender Executive Branch material merely because Congress demands it while citing a non-existent part of the Constitution ( and no they cannot edit the Constitution by writing a law to change the separation of powers ). What happens if Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer are in charge this coming January 3rd?

              You need to educate yourself. This oversight is also ingrained by Case Law and the U.S. code:

              You know what? I forgot more about this subject than you ever learned. And believe me, it didn’t start with Trump, this topic goes back ever since the (D)ummycrats lost the FDR White House. So here you cite statutes ( i.e., law, NOT the Constitution ) and opinions. What did I say again. Oh I remember, I said: there is no such thing as Constitutional Oversight. Stop piling extraneous crap ( like Hannity’s bullet point stew ), you’re confusing only yourself. So, now that you have learned something new, every time Derp-TV and Congress people state this “Constitutional Oversight” then take a drink. Get mad at them for leading you astray and into believing their hearings on TV would amount to anything but chatter and posturing. They always go nowhere because they have no Constitutional power to do anything except talk.

              Most of the rest of your comment is emoting and well, I just say no to emotional handwringing. But your last paragraph talks about DoJ ( and presumably Sessions ) as criminal swamp dwellers or something. Yeah sure. You don’t even know the various jobs down there at DoJ or their actual duties ( only the duties you dreamed up ) nor do you understand the ramifications they must consider before doing anything. You don’t actually know anything about Sessions either from what I can tell. Sessions and Trump ( plus Tancredo, Lamm, Kobach and Steve King ) are the only identifiable people with the courage to face the demographic crisis and speak freely about it in public, rather than sell out to the big money of globalism. That makes them miles smarter than you because rather than worrying about this vital topic you are consumed by the Russian hoax, which is precisely what the enemy wanted. Did you get that? They are “resisting” and trying to derail or slow down the Trump Train. And that is precisely what you are doing. Congratulations. You are officially a gaslit handwringer.

                  You do not understand the concept of implied constitutional powers that at least partially govern our constitutional republic. You asked me to go to Wikipedia and show you and so I did. Here it is again for you. Please read the link this time:

                  “Congressional oversight is oversight by the United States Congress over the Executive Branch, including the numerous U.S. federal agencies. … Congress’s oversight authority derives from its “implied” powers in the Constitution, public laws, and House and Senate rules.

                  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congressional_oversight

                  You also refuse to acknowledge that I have pointed out to you several times that this constitutional power of congressional oversight has been firmly set into stone by case law……From that same link:

                  “The Supreme Court of the United States has confirmed the oversight powers of Congress, subject to constitutional safeguards for civil liberties, on several occasions. In 1927, for instance, the Court found that in investigating the administration of the Justice Department, Congress was considering a subject “on which legislation could be had or would be materially aided by the information which the investigation was calculated to elicit”

                  I have also pointed out that this power of oversight has been granted to Congress several times via legislative law. Here are a few examples of that:

                  The Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 (P.L. 79-601), for the first time, explicitly called for “legislative oversight” in public law. It directed House and Senate standing committees “to exercise continuous watchfulness” over programs and agencies under their jurisdiction; authorized professional staff for them; and enhanced the powers of the Comptroller General, the head of Congress’s investigative and audit arm, the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

                  The Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 (P.L. 91-510) authorized each standing committee to “review and study, on a continuing basis, the application, administration and execution” of laws under its jurisdiction; increased the professional staff of committees; expanded the assistance provided by the Congressional Research Service; and strengthened the program evaluation responsibilities of GAO.

                  The Congressional Budget Act of 1974 (P.L. 93-344) allowed committees to conduct program evaluation themselves or contract out for it; strengthened GAO’s role in acquiring fiscal, budgetary, and program-related information; and upgraded GAO’s review capabilities.

                  No one is lying to you. You simply do not understand the law and are apparently too stubborn to even want to understand it because the law does NOT support your narrative…..

                  You are impossibly thick.. This reminds of a year and a half of arguing with NeverTrumpers.

                  As before, you won’t answer the obvious question … given your dutiful love for emanating penumbras what will you say if Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer tear up the Trump Administration with document requests and subpoenas using the guise of Congressional “Constitutional” Oversight?

                  With allies like you in the battle to save the Constitution, we really need no enemies.

                • Well gee….I’m thinking the same thing about you….. 🙂 Schumer is just another Senator according to the law.

                  It is the oversight and investigative committees, the majority leader in the Senate and the Speaker of the House that have the power.

                  And if you want to save the constitution, come to understand it first because you are obviously lost in the subject of constitutional law.

                  But what is the obvious question I refuse to answer? I have answered everyone you have asked me with links and references in my opinion……

                  Peace to you. Go spend some time with your family.

                  You bullsh!tted your way through each reply to every detailed question and comment I sent to you but I was too busy to notice. What a waste of time.

                  And I was just getting ready to ask you if Roe is Constitutional or a penumbral emanation. But that would have gone nowhere as well.

                • So you are just now reading the thread we wrote several days ago? 🙂

                  No Roe is not constitutional. Have you never read the 10th Amendment?

                  “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. … ”

                  Do you see abortion governing rights given the Fedcoats by our founding fathers anywhere in the constitution?

                  No?

                  Then that issue is none of the Federal governments business because that power is ‘reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.’

                  This is the way it should be and the way it was before the Fabian Socialists got Roe on the books.

          Yeah, everyone is allowed their own opinion, but not their own facts. And no poster here has been corrected more than “jack”.

          Furthermore, no-one blocked his opinion, he stated it. So you start with a false premise, then shift to “tone”. You can infer whatever tone you want from my words, have at it, I couldn’t care less. But make sure you do the same for posters like “jack” as well. Theirs is unmistakable.

    This woman served as counsel to one of the highest officials in the FBI, and she spent hours of time texting like a teenager. She was hired by the Special Counsel, and would still be there if the IG hadn’t found her texts. Even then, she was not fired from the FBI; she quit.

    The bureau has sunk this low. Just think about that.

    So, Goodlatte and his crew have been “worked” for seven months by a mid-level bureaucrat, with all of them knowing that significant and relevant evidence was being withheld by her. I think it’s reasonable to conclude that the combined lack of energy and failure to apply judicial consequences for uncooperative behavior is highly indicative of intentionally “slow-walking” the investigative process.

    As said in a subcomment above, there is an alternate perspective. 2018 midterms are 6 months away. Trump needs a big red wave. How to energize his base? One way is to make RINOs look impotent in face of obvious (like Page) Demorat misdeeds. Which this does.
    Get out the Trumplican vote.

    __________________

    Guess whose fault that is, Goodlatte?

    YOURS.

    Your complete and utter FAILURE to hold ANYONE accountable to the RULE of LAW.

    You are IMPOTENT and PATHETIC.

    Our civil miscreants throw the BOOK at the American People without batting an eye. If I recall what I read yesterday correctly, they even went after the Hammonds AFTER they were released and put them BACK in prison.

    But they won’t do ANYTHING to one of their fellow civil miscreants.

    They have their own “justice” system, where nobody gets prosecuted for anything.

    Ever.

    Should put Goodlatte and Gowdy in a cage, while the crowd shouts “Two men enter, One man leaves!”.

    Take care of our entire political-class that way.
