What is the consequence of ignoring a subpoena from Congress?  If there is a consequence, how does Congress enforce it?  Asking for a concerned citizen.

Congress sues the person as it did with McGahan. If the court upholds the subpoena and the person ignores it, he is in contempt and can be jailed.

Thanks.  It seems Trump wants to take the impeachment process into the election.
