Hopefully not for future reference

If a few decades hence a NeoCheney admin uses the precedent of the raid on Rep. Jefferson's office to commit more obvious violations of the separation of powers, let it be noted that I spoke out against the FBI's action. They should have gone through the congressional leadership, gotten a subpoena, and at the least been accompanied by the Hill police force. Two hundred nineteen years of precedence down the drain to further nail one dead-to-rights crooked politician - or perhaps to prove they could.

Hopefully not for future reference.

Update: I was wrong about the subpoena. Right about the House sergeant of arms and the Capitol police, though - why bar them?

Some - well, many - cry chutzpah.

Also should have pointed to the comments circa here, which I'm only catching up on.
