Radical far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has renewed her threats that Democrats will begin arresting and jailing Trump Administration officials who resist impeachment proceedings.

Tlaib, who makes up the numbers in the "AOC Plus 3 Squad" of anti-Trump Democratic lawmakers, is one of the more vocal supporters behind the push to impeach the president.

During a new interview, Tlaib doubled down on her claim that House Democrats will arrest and detain White House officials who refuse to comply with their attempts at impeaching President Donald Trump.

While speaking with Deadline Detroit Saturday, Tlaib said the subject was a matter of discussion in the Democratic caucus while renewing the threat she first made earlier this month.

“If they were to detain someone, where would they go and have them detained so that they can comply with the subpoenas?” Tlaib said to the outlet.

“There have been actual serious conversations about what the logistics would look like … if we did have to force someone through a court order to come before the Congressional committee.

"This is pretty uncharted territory for many of us and even for Congress.”

According to the Daily Caller, Tlaib spoke after having a town hall meeting with Democrats of her 13th district, who are organizing a food collection for striking General Motors autoworkers.

The congresswoman was asked how likely it was that the Department of Justice under Attorney General William Barr would force Trump officials to testify before Democratic-controlled House committees.

“One of the people we held in contempt was Barr,” Tlaib said.

“We are using our own legal support, legal experts that are coming in … beyond the tainted and conflicted U.S. Attorney [General’s] office.” 

Trump has said that neither he nor his administration plans to cooperate with the “constitutionally illegitimate” impeachment inquiry.

Tlaib previously mentioned the threat of incarcerating Trump officials when she was speaking to constituents at an informal coffee event.

“This is the first time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” she reportedly said.

“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?

"We don’t know. Where do we hold them?”

Tlaib suggested people like Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross could be jailed in Detroit.

“So 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. We won’t hurt them,” she said.

“We’ll make sure they come and show, right? I’ll make sure that you’re in charge.”

Tlaib started off her congressional career by calling for Trump’s impeachment, infamously promising supporters that she would work to “impeach the motherfu**er.”
