Democrats are escalating matters against President Donald Trump to dangerous levels as one Democrat threatens to send the president’s son to jail.
Sen. Dick Blumenthal declared that if Donald Trump Jr. failed to comply with a subpoena to testify before Congress he would be taken to prison.
Blumenthal justifies calling Trump Jr. to testify again by claiming his testimony in 2017 was less than honest. “I’ve said repeatedly that his answers, to questions, and I watched him, were smart-alecky, untruthful, and misleading,” Blumenthal said.
“So, I want to hear about what the truth is as to what he said to his father about the meeting in Trump Tower with Russian agents,” Blumenthal continued, “why he said he was only peripherally aware of the negotiations on the Moscow negotiation, when he was in the thick of it. He truly misled the Judiciary Committee, and now he needs to be held accountable, those answers about the Moscow Trump Tower, the meeting with Russian agents and other negotiations, really need to be answered.”
When asked about Trump Jr. refusing to submit to the subpoena, Blumenthal lost it.
“He ought to be held in contempt, and there’s no question with Donald Trump Jr. about any sort of privilege to avoid this kind of questioning,” Blumenthal responded.
“If he fails to answer, he ought to be put in jail,” he declared.
“If he fails to comply with a lawful subpoena, he has no privilege,” Blumenthal closed, “prison is the only answer.”
