  1. Ask the Obama admin officials who ignored congressional subpoenas what happens. Obviously nothing happens

  2. In essence, a coup d'etat

  3. If you're a big shot in DC you can get by with this but Average Joe goes to jail. Executive privilege ? Just another way of saying a criminal can get by with everything

  4. Here is my suggestion: When officials ignore subpoenas, they have lawyers advising them. Those lawyers are advising their clients to break the law. That advice violates the ethics guidelines of the American Bar Association. Those lawyers should be the object of complaints registered with the bar, leading to an investigation and possible disbarment.



  7. The house made it clear when the whistle-blower came out that refusal of subpoenas would be considered inherent contempt.

  8. The consequences must not be too bad. Being a traitor making deals with communist countries to investigate Americans is Ok. Being a president that talks like a crazy person and thinks he's a king is Ok. Embarrassing a nation for moral and ethical values is Ok. The list just goes on and on defying most everything that Americans are raised to think are right…is Ok.  When he losses the election he won't leave. He won't believe it and think it's a conspiracy. Security will have to haul him away in a rubber truck. That'll be Ok too.

  9. Drump is a traitor and a POS period and needs to be removed from OFFICE

  10. Alexa, GREAT JOB REPORTING, you did your job, you interviewed several experts and you organized the information and helped the viewer understand the content. This is true journalism, thank you very much! Nowadays, so many news agencies are lazy and interview their fellow employees and "consultants" that are on the news agencies payroll.

  11. Trump is above the law , wait and see what trump will do to democrats

  12. Arriva España!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Soooo… The POTUS actually IS above the law.

  14. Like a cop,who doesn't uphold the Constitution he swore to uphold……😵💨

  15. Congress is doing it's job; how is that not constitutional???

  16. Do regular Americans have to cooperate with law enforcement or subpoenas, if we feel that they investigation is not to our liking or feel it's unfair or shady or anything like that ? Even though we don't have executive privilege. ..we are still Americans And if the president can do it then why can't we ?
    And we all know some cops are dirty as well as judges …And have locked up innocent ppl even framed some of them .if we feel this is happening to us ..then why can't we refuse to cooperate as well with no penalties ?
    And why should any of us have to listen to law enforcement at all ? William Barr has been going around the entire world asking all other governments to investigate out own law enforcement and intelligence agencies for being dirty to the core ..remember they had surveillance on all of us And those leaked documents ? Do we wait for trump to dismantle all our law enforcemrbt agencies …or do we have rights right now to not accept what we percieve as a bogus investigatoon upon ourselves ? Anyone ?

  17. President Trump answers to. o one! Silly rabbits NBC!

  18. Old white male political clownery….its normal when whites do it..but don't let one black male American or women do one thing wrong like them. ..or its off with thier head.

  19. Dems closed doors and No Transcipts ! Refuse to vote on impeachment ! Good speculation! Eric Holder you mean ?

  20. This reality show administration is like watching Goodfellas 2.0.

  21. The Democrats and the Republicans are both fighting each other who’s running the country

  22. This was very helpful– thanks! The 'Inherent Contempt' is what I want them to do. I want it a lot.
