Democrats Holding America in Contempt

Harmeet Dhillon Appears on FNC’s ‘The Ingraham Angle’ To Discuss Democrats Holding America in Contempt

According to Dhillon:

Yeah. Well, of course he would be. It’s not his job to go do the impeachment homework for the Democrats by going to court and asking them to waive that obligation. In fact, in recent court cases, on this exact same issue, the D.C. Circuit has refused to make grand jury materials public even if they’re 50 and 60 years old. There’s no compelling reason to do that here. His transparency and openness has been met with absolute demagoguery and despicable lies by the Democrats here. Laura, you’ve made the point and analogized them to meth dealers. These are the dealers who are actually using some themselves because they are so addicted to this narrative that they can’t give it up. It’s an awful spectacle. As you pointed out today, Elijah Cummings, Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer and Jerry Nadler, 7 years ago, all, they had big fuss about the proceedings of contempt against Eric Holder. In that case, Eric Holder had openly defied and given nothing and stonewalled Congress for over 400 days on this gun running stuff. Then he only gave the documents after he left office. Here, our Attorney General has only like 5-6 weeks into it and he’s been treated like this.

Absolutely. So, the three ways that you can actually pursue contempt, none of them are going to work in real life. One, arresting people stopped in 1930; and the other two, civil and criminal. They never get prosecuted for the exact reason that Chris Christie just said. And in this case, Jerry Nadler has chosen to pursue the slowest moving failed effort which he knows is going nowhere. He is really filibustering. It’s fairly transparent. One more point is the reason why these people are asking the Attorney General to go to court is they know that if they go to court, a court is going to say “Get out of here.” Political question. We can’t help you. This is not the same, the people or the president.
