Radical Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been engulfed in countless scandals since she became a member of Congress back in January.
But things just went from bad to worse for the Michigan lawmaker after she was caught on camera admitting Democrats real plan for President Donald Trump’s cabinet officials.
During a town hall meeting, Tlaib told her constituents that Democrats held a closed-door meeting to determine how to arrest Trump administration officials who did not comply with congressional subpoenas.
“Let me tell you, this is pretty — and this is the last caucus conversation we had. Do you know this is really unprecedented? This is the worst time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” Tlaib said.
She continued, “So they’re trying to figure out — no joke — they’re trying to figure out, ‘Well, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them?’”
“What are we hoping? I mean, I’m not in those kinds of conversations, but I’m asking, like, you know, what happens? And they’re like, ‘Well, Rashida, we’re trying to figure it out ourselves because this is uncharted territory,’” she continued.
“No, I’m telling you that they’re trying to be like, ‘Well, where are we going to put them? Where are we going to hold them?’ No, I mean those are the kinds of things they’re trying to tread carefully,” she added.
“I mean this is — I’m like you all, I ask the same questions, but what happens when they don’t comply? I mean the fact of the matter is we held [Attorney General William] Barr and [Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross] in contempt,” Tlaib said.
“Well, what happens if they don’t comply? And everybody is looking each other, we’re like, ‘We haven’t had this ever happen before,’” she declared.
The House of Representatives voted 230-198 in July to hold Barr and Ross in contempt of Congress for defying congressional subpoenas. While it was only the second time in history that a sitting Cabinet member was held in criminal contempt, it was not, in fact, unprecedented — former President Barack Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, was held in contempt after he refused to turn over documents related to the “Operation Fast and Furious” gunrunning scandal.
“I just want you to know I will relay your message, I will tell them they can hold all those people right here in Detroit, we’ll take care of them, and make sure they show up to the committee hearings,” Tlaib told a constituent. “We won’t hurt them. We’ll make sure they come and show, right? I’ll make sure that you’re in charge.”

Tlaib falsely stated that the process could be enforced by the Washington, D.C. Police Department.
The procedure actually only involves the chamber that is concerned.
So if the House filed a contempt citation, the individual is arrested by the chamber’s sergeant-at-arms and brought to the floor for punishment, which may include imprisonment.
Here’s the wildest part: Democrats have gone so crazy that they are assuming officials will defy subpoenas and are discussing how to jail Trump cabinet officials.
