Response to HelpImSurrounded (Reply #27)

35. Congress is not their arena. DU discussed this over a year ago, but I can't find the thread.

The USMS as it stands today was established in 1969 to provide guidance and assistance to Marshals throughout the federal judicial districts. USMS is an agency of the United States executive branch reporting to the United States Attorney General, but serves as the enforcement arm of the United States federal courts...

The Act provided that a United States Marshal's primary function was to execute all lawful warrants issued to him under the authority of the United States. The law defined marshals as officers of the courts charged with assisting Federal courts in their law-enforcement functions...

What that means is that they are logistical protection around courts, not Congress. For them to serve a warrant for arrest, the House would have to hire a prosecutor to impanel a grand jury, etc, etc. Darrel Issa tried that, but the process wouldn't support his indicting a witness who took the 5th under legal advisement. See my first link, above.
