Contempt of Courts ... and Congress

Rep John Conyers has filed a brief joined "by more than two dozen Democratic members including Reps. Jerrold Nadler of New York, Zoe Lofgren of California and Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas" qhich argues that Donald Trump's pardon of Sheriff Arpaio for contempt of court has "threatened" a fundamental "judicial power." And, if allowed to stand, "could have severe implications for Congress’s ability to compel compliance with its own investigations and orders.” See story here.

Two words: Francis Townsend.
