The almost intangible upside is that Barr's ferociously and publicly incompetent lawbreaking is preferable to someone who can do the same poo poo but get away unnoticed.

Ugh I'm at a UNC system university and we had shots fired the other night (it was honestly probably nothing there was not even a suspect description) but gently caress if I'm not a little edgy going into finals week for reasons other than being unprepared.

Can someone touch a bit on what civil penalties or other recourse actions the house can levy against Barr / other non-willing participants?

As I understand it without DOJ support Contempt of Congress wonít get criminal penalties - so no jail time - but Iím not sure what else congress can do? Levy punative fines upon Barr himself? DOJ?

Sorry for the link dump, but all of these sort of describe the situation that Democrats have to pick from.

Conventional option: Hold fucker in contempt of congress, attempt to enforce fining/jailing through court system (takes forever, since Trump DOJ won't prosecute)
Unconventional option being discussed: Using inherent contempt powers to unilaterally issue fines to the fucker through the House. Congress has the power to enforce their own laws, so it would need a House-only resolution to do that.
Old-timey option: Dispatch the Sergeant-at-Arms or the Metro PD to arrest said fucker and haul him in front of the House to answer for his/her fuckery. Kind of a problem when the fucker has a security detail (see: Barr)
Long-term option: Don't fund the fucker's salaries/departments in the future.

I want the old timey option. Just let us rip off the mask and fully expose the fact that the clockwork of our government's highest levels has been lubricated by nothing but decorum and mutual agreement by elites that it is not in their interest to pull the separation of powers thread for the last 160 years as "How many legions has the Pelosi?" becomes a relevant question.
