    (CNN) Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly on Thursday threatened jail time for White House officials who are declining to comply with congressional committees' efforts to conduct oversight of President Donald Trump's administration.

    Three officials have refused to comply with congressional requests to testify at the administration's urging, ratcheting up the long-brewing battle with House Democrats ready and willing to take their multi-front investigations to the courts.

    The House Oversight Committee had asked to hear from senior White House adviser Stephen Miller on immigration, former security official Carl Kline on security clearances and Justice Department Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Gore on addinga citizenship question to the US census.

    Go ahead and try! Take it to court! Trump will claim executive privilege. Since these people are his advisers within the Executive branch for matters that are within the Executive branch, Trump will probably win. Unless the 2020 election happens first, and the Ds' antics are making their loss of control of the House look pretty likely.

    With Bush I or Bush II, the Ds would have a field day with a, "What is he hiding?!" message. With Trump, well, he'll give them another lesson that he fights back. And the collapse of the Trump-Russia Collusion Delusion will both fuel Trump's counter-attacks and give them credibility.

    Note to "Warpy" and "shockey80": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    I smell an investigation of this one soon in his illegal activities. Trump does have some people watching his back also, the porn lawyer affair is one good example of enemies biting the dust in a big thud.
