Rashida Tlaib: Democrats Discussing Tactics to Arrest Trump Officials
Suggests arresting Attorney General William Barr for defying congressional subpoenas
Radical anti-Trump Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has claimed that Democrats are discussing tactics on how to arrest top White House officials.
Far-left "AOC Plus 3 Squad" member Tlaib was caught on video saying Dems are looking into options for how best to take Trump officials into custody when they refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas.
Tlaib was filmed telling Detroit constituents at her "Congress, Coffee, and Conversation" event on Tuesday that lawmakers are focused on how best to arrest President Donald Trump's cabinet members.
"This is the first time we've ever had a situation like this," she told her audience.
"So they're trying to figure out, no joke, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them?
"We don't know. Where do we hold them?"

According to Fox News, an America Rising PAC tracker caught Tlaib on video speculating what could happen to Trump administration officials held in contempt of Congress.
The congresswoman pointed to Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and Attorney General William Barr, who were both held in criminal contempt of Congress for defying congressional subpoenas.

The House of Representatives voted to ask the Justice Department to prosecute Barr and Ross by a margin of 230 to 198.
It was the second time in U.S. history a sitting cabinet member was held in criminal contempt of Congress.
The first was former attorney general Eric Holder.
The Republican-controlled House held Holder in contempt in 2012 after he refused to turn over documents pertaining to the Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal.
Tlaib said her colleagues are "trying to tread carefully" in this "uncharted territory."
"I will tell them they can hold all those people right here in Detroit," she joked.
"We'll take care of them and make sure they show up to the committee hearings."
