    One of the problems that congress has is that unless they can get the judicial system to order it, they have zero control over the executive branch. If the Justice Department will disregard the supenas coming out of the Congress then Congress has no way to force action on them on their own. This is the case we have right now. Barr is controlled by Trump and Barr controls the Justice Department.

    One would think that the US Marshals were strictly part of the DOJ but they are actually doing dual duty. They are also assigned to the Court System as well. This is the courts ace in the hole. If the FBI won't do the arrest, the US Marshals also have the ability. And sense they work closer to the Court System than they do for the FBI They actually fall under United States Code, Title 28, Chapter 37 of the Judicial Code. That means, they are actually about half assigned to the Court System by tradition and by tradition and custom work for the Court System. Even though their boss is the IG.

    The Congress can issue a contempt order but will have to get a court to act on it. At that point, even the President can be arrested and charged by the Court if they agree and issue the same order and it's not followed up on. Even though the US Marshals are still under the IG, technically, they are a different law enforcement branch than the other standard DOJ units. And they are also the oldest and have the most tradition. Unlike the FBI and all the others, they were created in 1789 under President Washington. If I were Barr, I wouldn't want to try and block the US Marshals from serving and enforcing those Court Orders since that is one of their main duties. He may find himself in handcuffs in about 10 minutes.

    Things are going to get very interesting.

    The democrat Party needs to stop working for Soros and get back to working for the People.

    There was an investigation that found no Crime, no Collusion and the only obstruction remains that Trump obstructed Hillary from the White House

    Man up

    It found no basis for collusion. Collusion is a made up term and is certainly not illegal. But it didn't clear Trump from anything else. It isn't in Muellers power to charge a sitting President with anything. That is left to the House. He gathered the data and it's up to the House to take what he has compiled and figure things out. What's come out of this is a bad case of continuous obstruction. The same thing that popped Nixon. And that was upheld by the Supreme Court system back then. What makes you think things are any different now? Is it because it's Orange?
    Trump and his conspirators needs to stop obstructing and allow it to finally come to an end. Of course, Trump may not care for the ending of that movie.

    You didn't even read the summary report. If so, you wouldn't be posting this balderdash.

    Only in the Building. Not outside the building. The US Marshals have the same powers as every County Sheriff and State Police in the Nation as well as every other Federal Agency. One of their jobs is to apprehend and bring in people fleeing from the court system. And yes, that includes anyone that refuses to comply with a court order and is found in contempt.

    How did we get so many lawyers and judges on this board?

    I find it amusing that Democrats read the Mueller report and find one thing and the Republicans read it and find a completely different outcome.

    I read the report and found it would need to go to trial to sort out the evidence and how it applied. Objectivity seems to be off the table.

    Decades ago used to be a Capitol Hill police force which was separate from the D.C. police force & worked the area around Congress buildings. As for the US Fascists Masochists KKK who were so much like the old Soviet Union KGB this KKK national religion lynching enforcement of mass murder Memorial Day celebrations for economic gains in killing & then making more monies on deaths it wouldn't be such a "serve the Pope or die" & "death to the infidels" Godvernment of drugs, Godvernment of death spectacle of suicidal Islamidiotocracy homicidal Christiananality pedophilia business incompetence & malfeasance that thrives on immaculate conceptions of churchstate fiefdom thieving US Constitution - old glory - old testament arsonist Nazi economics in kidnapping & torture guess the Islamidiotocracy would cease.
