Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) warned Tuesday of “consequences well beyond contempt of Congress” if Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials continue withholding documents in defiance of the subpoena issued by Congress. The documents relate to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server.

Meadows didn’t specify what those consequences would be, but Congress does have constitutional authority to jail or fine individuals who defy congressional subpoenas to produce documents or provide testimony. The last time Congress jailed an individual for defying a subpoena was 1935.

“You know, it would just take one simple phone call from the deputy attorney general to Michael Horowitz, who has all these documents, who’s testified under oath that it’s not a problem to give it to Congress and it wouldn’t impede his investigation,” said Meadows (pictured above right). “Make that phone call today. If not, there will be consequences well beyond contempt of Congress.”
How about a call from the attorney general not the deputy attorney general !
