President Donald Trump resumed his Twitter fusillade against the Democratic impeachment inquiry on Sunday morning by turning his ire on Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) after she revealed that Democrats are considering detaining White House officials who are refusing to comply with congressional subpoenas.
Tlaib made the revelation during a new interview with Deadline Detroit. The freshman lawmaker told the publication that House Democrats have discussed jailing allies of the president who do not comply with congressional subpoenas, an escalation of the House’s efforts to force White House compliance with an impeachment inquiry.”
“There have been actual serious conversations about what the logistics would look like… if we did have to force someone through a court order to come before the Congressional committee,” she said.
After Trump’s digital director Dan Scavino tweeted out a link to the story with the comment, “Sounds about right. COUP!” Trump responded with, “A despicable human being!”
