Amazing what happens when they face real consequences

The Justice Department says it has given House Republicans new classified information related to the Russia investigation after lawmakers had threatened to hold officials in contempt of Congress or even impeach them.
And yet they're still trying:
A spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan said Saturday that the department has partially complied with subpoenas from the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees after officials turned over more than a thousand new documents this week.
'partially complied'.  Too bad there's not a 'partially impeached' option.

Crap like this is why "Build a wall!" has such resonance.  Hell, this makes "Minefields and sniper towers!" sound better.
Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Tuesday declaring it a “human right” for all North Americans.

“And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.”
Someone who considers his own country's borders sacred thinks our don't exist; yeah, that'll go over well.

One of those "Only Ones professional enough to have a gun" people.
Justin T. Fahy, 27, who was an agent with the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, pleaded guilty Friday for attempting to take photographs of women in bathrooms.
At least BATFEIEIO fired him(helping drug cartels won't do that), but the prosecution...
However, he will not serve any time in jail.

Instead, the former ATF agent was sentenced to 12 months of probation and required to undergo a psychological exam and counseling as a condition of his probation.
What the hell?

What kind of consequences does impeachment or contempt of congress carry? More strongly worded letters? Shaking fingers? Stern looks? Doesn't seem like congress has any teeth.

If moving to the United States is a human right for all of North America, isn't it likewise a human right for people to not live in 1000 square foot apartments with six other people in the United States? And if so, then we can all move to the mansions of the leftists who think we should all be competing in our jobs with people who are essentially trespassing.
