Sen Cotton: Have Sergeant at Arms DRAG Democrats Into Committee

The Senate democrats are suffering from diaper rash because of all of the crying and wetting of their diapers and are boycotting committee meetings necessary to pass President Trump’s nominees toward the vote.  Sen Cotton wants the democrats to brought into the committee rooms by force if necessary.

The majority leader, Mitch McConnell has the power to order the Sergeant at Arms to bring the democrats into committee even by force if necessary.

Sen Cotton said:

“I don’t know how long they plan to do this.  I don’t know if they intend to abscond out of the District, if we’re going to have to vote to have the sergeant at arms track them down, haul them to work to do their business.”

From The Daily Caller:

The sergeant at arms takes orders from the Senate majority leader, currently Republican Mitch McConnell, who has the authority to enforce a quorum call. If Republicans agree to support the move, McConnell could order the sergeant at arms to physically bring Democrats into the room for a vote, although the move is somewhat unlikely.

Nevertheless, Cotton remarked on the sergeant at arms standing in the chamber: “He has a distinguished record in military and law enforcement. He could probably do that effectively.”
