Dems Threaten To Withhold Trump Administration Officials’ Pay

The Dems are truly unhinged. They have threatened to withhold salaries if they do not cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee.

From The Hill:

House Democrats are threatening the salaries of Interior, Commerce and Justice Department staff if they block ongoing committee investigations.

House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) sent letters Tuesday calling for eight current and former Trump administration officials to provide information for two of the panel’s investigations, cautioning that officials who block the interviews from taking place could see their salaries withheld.

“Please be advised that any official at the Department who ‘prohibits or prevents’ or ‘attempts or threatens to prohibit or prevent’ any officer or employee of the Federal Government from speaking with the Committee could have his or her salary withheld pursuant to section 713 of the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act,” Cummings wrote in the letters.
