GOP Can Have Attorney General Arrested?!


( – If the Department of Justice (DOJ) does not act on a criminal contempt resolution that House GOP leaders support, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) is determined to initiate a vote on arresting Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Speaking to Fox News Digital, Luna expressed her intentions to push forward an “inherent contempt” resolution against Garland depending on the outcome of another resolution evaluating his actions.

“As of right now, we fully intend to bring it,” Luna stated. “I don’t really have much faith in the Department of Justice.

“And I don’t think the American people do either. But we are trying to bring back a level playing field and show that, you know, there should be accountability all the way up to the top.” She further commented, “If the DOJ won’t do their jobs, we’re going to do it for them.”

Inherent contempt is distinct from the more typical contempt resolution set for a vote, which would refer Garland to his own department for possible criminal charges.

In contrast, inherent contempt would authorize the House sergeant at arms to directly arrest Garland.

Luna plans to distribute a letter to her colleagues to explain the need for invoking inherent contempt.

“Inherent contempt of Congress hasn’t been done since early 1900s. And before that, it was a pretty common practice,” she explained.

“I think that when you explain to people what inherent contempt of Congress is and when they see that subpoenas are being ignored, and that there seems to be a two-tiered justice system — which we’re seeing nationally, every single person…is realizing that — I think that they will understand,” she elaborated.

Luna has the option to expedite a vote on her proposal by classifying it as “privileged” to compel the House to consider it within two legislative days.

House Republicans led by House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) introduced a vote to hold Garland in contempt of Congress for refusing to release audio recordings of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s interviews with Joe Biden.

Despite a slim two-vote majority in the House, Republicans scored a win with a 216 to 207 vote along partisan lines. Rep. Dave Joyce (OH) was the lone Republican dissenter.
