    Presidents can't pardon people held in contempt of Congress. If pardoned individuals refuse to answer questions, congressional committees can hold them in contempt of Congress, a form of civil contempt. When witnesses are held in civil contempt, they can be imprisoned until they agree to testify.

    Manooooch is not going to fare well in federal prison.

    The problem might be prosecution.  Wouldn't that fall to the executive branch?

    That's OK.  William Barr works for the people.  Not for Trump.  Right?

    I believe it’s up to a judge to find the individual is in fact in contempt and they issue a bench warrant for their arrest. It’s a hearing process rather than a trial process. Both sides present and the judge issues a ruling. Contempt of court/congress citations are taken very seriously and not to be messed around with as a ploy or tactic and judges typically issue warrants because of the seriousness of the allegation. But they also don’t take kindly to abuse of the allegation or to have it used frivolously. It’s real put up or shut up time.

    Nobody else has ever sucked at his job more than Don Trump.  Take that goddamn phone away from him.
    Question to anyone:

    If you pulled any of the crap Trump does on a daily basis, would you still have a job?

    He would’ve been fired by the end of his first week. Also what’s nuts is that he’d be removed from a local or state government position. The Governor of my state got the boot for ethical violations because his girlfriend’s company was benefitting from some of the policies he was pushing. Trump does this thing out in the open every day.

    I believe it’s up to a judge to find the individual is in fact in contempt and they issue a bench warrant for their arrest. It’s a hearing process rather than a trial process. Both sides present and the judge issues a ruling. Contempt of court/congress citations are taken very seriously and not to be messed around with as a ploy or tactic and judges typically issue warrants because of the seriousness of the allegation. But they also don’t take kindly to abuse of the allegation or to have it used frivolously. It’s real put up or shut up time.
    So you're saying the DOJ doesn't decide whether to prosecute or not?  
    Yes, as its the Congress taking on the executive. The congress goes to court as the plantiff and the executive has to show up and defend the "contempt," or the witness if not being defending by the executive, whether its executive privelege or the witness was in a car accident and is in the hospital for 20 days. Judges take this shit seriously because it messes with the peaceful resolution of conflict and they don't like games, unless its done on the record, legally, or in chambers. Ignoring a court/congressional order to testify pisses them off.

    Contempt of Congress is a federal misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum $100,000 fine and a maximum one-year sentence in federal prison. 
    The problem might be prosecution.  Wouldn't that fall to the executive branch?
    I believe it’s up to a judge to find the individual is in fact in contempt and they issue a bench warrant for their arrest. It’s a hearing process rather than a trial process. Both sides present and the judge issues a ruling. Contempt of court/congress citations are taken very seriously and not to be messed around with as a ploy or tactic and judges typically issue warrants because of the seriousness of the allegation. But they also don’t take kindly to abuse of the allegation or to have it used frivolously. It’s real put up or shut up time.
    So you're saying the DOJ doesn't decide whether to prosecute or not?  
    Yes, as its the Congress taking on the executive. The congress goes to court as the plantiff and the executive has to show up and defend the "contempt," or the witness if not being defending by the executive, whether its executive privelege or the witness was in a car accident and is in the hospital for 20 days. Judges take this shit seriously because it messes with the peaceful resolution of conflict and they don't like games, unless its done on the record, legally, or in chambers. Ignoring a court/congressional order to testify pisses them off.
    I believe that any Federal Prosecutor who would be arguing these cases has to go the Attorney General first to get permission, which could throw a wrench in the works as Barr has proven to be a hack.
