U.S. House Could Slap $25,000 Per Day Contempt Fines On Trump Advisers

According to Reuters, a senior Democratic lawmaker has suggested fines of $25,000 a day for contempt on U.S. officials who stonewall congressional investigations of President Donald Trump and his administration.

As a way of putting some teeth into various inquiries of Trump and his turbulent presidency, Representative Adam Schiff spoke in two interviews about reviving the โ€œinherent contemptโ€ power of Congress.

Schiff said โ€œWe would levy fines on those who are not cooperating."
