Although most House Republicans also support Thursday’s vote, there are a few exceptions.
The three House Republicans who voted for Trump’s impeachment in January – Washington Rep. Dan Newhouse, South Carolina Rep. Tom Rice and California Rep. David Varado – voted against Thursday’s criminalization transfer.
But the two House Republicans who voted against impeachment-Mace and Fitzpatrick-supported the move against Bannon.
Mays told reporters on Thursday that her vote was to “unanimously” and that if the Republican Party wins a majority in 2022, she hopes Congress will retain its right to subpoena.
“I want the power to subpoena. When we start investigating some of the current crises facing the Biden administration-whether we are talking about border issues or a botched exit from Afghanistan-I have a lot of things when we are in the majority, I will I want to investigate,” she said.
Any individual found responsible for contempt of Congress could be guilty of crimes that could result in fines and imprisonment of 1 to 12 months. But this process is rarely called and rarely leads to jail time.
Although criminal contempt referral sounds serious, the House’s choice to use the Department of Justice may be more of a warning than a solution. It can take years to prosecute a person in a state of criminal contempt, and historical criminal contempt cases have been derailed by appeals and acquittal.
