Hoekstra: Stop, or I'll Tell You to Stop Again

Here's a quote from the confirmation appearing in Editor and Publisher:

In the letter, according to the Times, Hoekstra wrote: "I have learned of some alleged intelligence community activities about which our committee has not been briefed. If these allegations are true, they may represent a breach of responsibility by the administration, a violation of the law, and, just as importantly, a direct affront to me and the members of this committee who have so ardently supported efforts to collect information on our enemies."
Wow. That sounds tough. And if it didn't come from someone whose Congressional authority had been ignored since the Republicans took the majority, I'd almost believe it.

Oh, and another note, Hoekstra: You may think that the personal affront to you and the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee equates with violating the law, but some of us don't. Get over yourself and do your fucking job.

Impeach the man before he does something blatantly unconstitutional, like getting a blowjob and then lying about it.
