  •  Contempt of Congress and US Attorneys (0+ / 0-)

    According to wikipedia, contempt of congress works by first going through committee vote, then a vote by the full house or senate, and lastly turned over to a US Attorney to potentially prosecute.

    The problem is that the US Attorneys still have the option of whether to prosecute. We've seen how the law was changed in the middle of the night to allow the quick removal and replacement of US Attorneys. This can prevent proper oversight.
