Trump’s people are ignoring subpoenas to testify before the January 6th Committee. Ignoring a subpoena is not a good idea. If you decide to ignore a subpoena, you can be held in contempt of Court or Congress. Being held in contempt of Court or Congress is not like wining a Nobel Peace Prize. One is subject to a financial penalty, arrest and jail. That same One can be picked up and arrested by US Marshalls at any time.
You get the idea that a US Marshall is about 10 feet tall, packs a gun, unsmiling and means business with a capital B. Marshalls can walk in anywhere and at anytime. They know where you live. Marshalls can come and get you at a restaurant, before taking off on a plane after fastening seat belts, at a funeral, wedding or spa, graduation, bedtime, anytime. And if one resists, they are prepared to drag you away.
Once you have been served with a subpoena and you decide to ignore that subpoena, you will be walking on a very tight rope, or skating on thin ice, driving downhill without car brakes, always looking over your shoulder, fingers crossed, nervous, not a very happy camper.
Now really! Who loves Donald Trump that much?
