Do you know why they refused to arrest Giuliani on the grounds of refusing to testify?
Because that is an informal rule, you do not go against it. Imagine some Democrat being impeached in the future, just like Clinton was.

Here is the problem with arresting Rudy (from NY Times article):
“Refusal to comply with a duly authorized subpoena from Congress constitutes contempt of Congress. Contempt of Congress is a crime, and there is a mechanism for referring such cases to federal prosecutors. The problem, of course, is that federal prosecutors answer to the attorney general and, through him, to the White House, and they refuse to prosecute contempts committed by executive officials. In recent decades, congressional houses have sought a court order requiring executive officials to comply with their subpoenas, but that has all the problems described above”

Well, if they could not get Rudy, maybe they should have hired this guy, to make the impeachment more interesting, before every hearing:

Who told you that impeachment needs to be interesting?
That is a legal process, for God’s sake, with evidence and witnesses. It is not Judge Judy. I do not know what did you expect.
