U.S. House of Representatives

President Trump has made it clear that he and his administration do not intend to comply with the U.S. House’s legitimate impeachment inquiry. In response, the House must hold ANY Trump official who ignores subpoenas, refuses to testify, or otherwise obstructs justice in contempt.

President Trump is once again putting himself above the law, claiming the House's impeachment inquiry is "illegitimate" and "unconstitutional" and refusing to comply with any inquiry-related subpoenas.

Despite the president's obstinacy, the House must do everything it can to make sure the inquiry moves forward -- and that any Trump administration officials who are implicated by it are held accountable. 

That includes holding anyone who attempts to obstruct the investigation "in contempt" -- a serious procedure that can result in fines and even jail time for uncooperative witnesses. 

This administration has proven that subpoenas alone won't be enough. Congress must use every power it has to rein in this lawless president -- and show a strong, unified response to the administration's obstruction. 

Add your name to tell Congress: hold any Trump official who refuses to comply with the House's impeachment inquiry in contempt.
