    "His many victims"? That's just a tad histrionic, wouldn't you say?

    So, people do bad things, they are interrogated about other matters and you come along to call them victims? Whatever floats your boat, man, but you're not going to convince me that you're not being just a touch histrionic.

    Not even a little. He was rubber hosing to the limit and possibly past it.

    Do they even have that authority, or standing in court. They talk about oversight. What are the limits of their oversight powers? You are an attorney and I am not, but I suspect there is no legal leg to stand on.

    Folks, step right up to the spectacle of self-declared "libertarians" embracing the power of the executive to act without Congressional oversight! Something you can see 365 days a year in these United States!

    If you bothered to actually look at what people here were posting, you would notice that many liberals/lefties (myself and Lexicus come to mind) are decidedly uneasy with which some "liberals" and "progressives" have embraced the security services. I know I've posted somewhere here on CFC about the uncomfortable parallels with Trump and how Harold Wilson was treated by the security services.

    Its fascinating watching my progressive friends buy internet and social media connected surveillance cameras for their homes mostly understanding that its likely our NSA/CIA have a back door to those platforms. Then there is Alexa and the like. . .Such a weird age.

    They can subpoena you or me, but DoJ is another story. They can request many things that they cannot compell. It would be interesting where that line is drawn. The WH Counsel has stated very clearly that he thinks Congress has crossed it.

    Uneasy was when they started a special investigation in the first 90 days. It's should be way past that. The parallel is not Harold Wilson but Alger Hiss.

    There is no shame in admitting you know nothing about Harold Wilson and Colin Wallace's "Clockwork Orange" allegations, or the Wright Affair.

    You can't say "projection" just because you heard liberals say it, you have to understand its meaning and apply it with critical thought.
