Great idea. Who will enforce those contempt citations? What would be the practical effect of imposing them?

I disagree with you that they are wasting time in courts. If the courts are the only place you have left to enforce your authority, then that's where you go. Like I said in Post #11787. (Politico confirms. Hat tip to Walken After Midnight, who posted the link in the Pelosi Appreciation thread.)

By the way, what is the "real fight"?
