If you ignore or defy a subpoena, the court that demanded your presence can find you in contempt. A fine or jail time is possible. In the case of defying a Congressional subpoena, the committee that issued to subpoena votes to issue a contempt citation, and then the full chamber votes on it.

You could ignore the subpoena, of course; it happens, more than you might expect. If you choose that route, though, get ready for a world of legal hurt involving lawyers, lots of wasted time, possible fines and, maybe, some jail time.

On paper, defying a congressional subpoena for testimony or documents is a misdemeanor crime, punishable by one to 12 months in jail.

All subpoenas were fought

 

Obama’s press secretary explained during a press briefing that

 

 “...based on separation of powers, staff here don't go to testify in front of Congress

What are the penalties if you ignore a subpoena, or don’t comply?

 

          Failure to respond to a subpoena is punishable as contempt by either the court or agency issuing the subpoena. 

 

Punishment may include monetary sanctions (even imprisonment although extremely unlikely). 

 

Generally, a hearing will be held where the party charged with noncompliance has an opportunity to explain its side of the story, and the court or agency has broad discretion to determine an appropriate punishment given the circumstances presented. 

 

In most cases in a contempt proceeding, the court determines the appropriateness of withholding any documents under a claim of privilege. 

 

In such cases, the outcome is more likely to be an order to produce, coupled with an award of attorneys’ fees to the party that had to initiate the contempt proceedings.

Perjury is considered a serious offense, as it can be used to usurp the power of the courts, resulting in miscarriages of justice. In the United States, for example, the general perjury statute under federal law classifiesperjury as a felony and provides for a prison sentence of up to five years.
