Become a Citizen-Cosponsor of the Congressional Inherent Contempt Power Act

In the last few weeks alone, the Trump administration has fired the U.S. Attorney in New York for apparently investigating people close to the president and carried out a coverup of intelligence suggesting Russia paid bounties for the killing of American soldiers.

It’s clear Congress needs to add muscle to its power to oversee the executive branch and get the answers that are owed to the American people. Congressman Ted Lieu has a new bill called the Congressional Inherent Contempt Power Act to give the House of Representatives additional tools to compel executive branch officials to comply with authorized subpoenas.
