GGN President William Murphy on the Fred Holland Show (May 5, 2020)

Good Government Now President William Murphy appeared on the Fred Holland Show to discuss the GGN proposal for Congress to use its express authority to hold Executive Branch officials in inherent contempt to enforce congressional subpoenas.

They discuss the checks and balances of power between the Executive Branch, the Judicial Branch, and both chambers of Congress.

Murphy, William J. [Interviewee] and Holland, Fred [Interviewer]. “Arrests Not only Option Left if Congress Loses Access to Civil Lawsuits in McGahn Case; Inherent Contempt Fines and Independent Criminal Prosecutions are Superior Alternatives.” The Fred Holland Show. WTKI/WEKI Radio. Huntsville, AL. May 5, 2020.  (Listen from 1:34-7:45 and 11:28-20:50) (15:33) Dr. Bill Murphy discusses the availability of congressional subpoena enforcement options other than arrests of executive branch officials including inherent contempt fines and independent criminal prosecutions if Congress loses the ability to file civil enforcement lawsuits in the McGahn case currently before the DC Circuit Court.  Murphy said alarmism about arrests of executive branch officials is unjustified because it ignores the availability of these more workable alternatives.
