Inherent Contempt

200 years ago, Congress would try people just as a court of law would. The sergeant-at-arms had men and weapons at his disposal to bring people in, but the practice lapsed because it became a nuisance and has not been used for 70 years, but it remains available. Our Congress would be utterly remiss to not use this power. It is called "inherent contempt."

The Congress should initiate inherent contempt charges against Harriet Miers without delay. The Congress does not need to wait for the US Attorney for Washington, DC to bring charges. Additionally, Miers does not deserve a courtesy call. She flat out refused to come before Congress when she was subpoenaed, a direct rejection of Congress' power, and therefore a textbook case of contempt.
