of the redacted Executive version before the FBI charged in citing "national security" concerns. I'd love to see it read, but I would rather be sure that it gets released.

Maybe the Intercept? Wikileaks? How karmic would it be were Julian Assange to be the person who releases it from the Ecuadorean embassy in London! At a press conference!.....From atop a saddled unicorn!

O.K., maybe that last one is just a little unrealistic. But the idea is really exciting.

Here's the speech and debate clause in Article I:

The Senators and Representatives shall receive a compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid out of the treasury of the United States. They shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place.

As I read it, they can't arrest until charges have been laid. They can't just burst in.

I was reading in Salon this morning how the FBI is now empowered to gain access to what would otherwise be illegal searches through subterfuge now. God only knows how they are "interpreting" these laws; there now seems to be a secret law for every one that is public.

It is convenient (for them) that these secret memos, or whatever, are so handy after the fact.

The check is in the mail!

I recall that Nelson Mandela was released in a matter of days. About 10,000 days. When that torture report is released from the indefinite detention hole they're keeping it in, its own mama won't recognize it.

So, they broke people's feet and legs and then made them stand in stress positions.

As our pols clearly don't have the guts to prosecute, send them all to the Hague and let the Europeans sort them out. Trash like that needs to just be....dealt with.
