KNOW YOUR PLACE, PEASANT! If it’s not OK to spy on senators, is it still OK to spy on citizens?

Well, both are illegal. But, to be fair, spying on Senators adds an additional separation of powers angle that, I should note, I was pointing out months ago.

And it’s also the case that so long as a culture of impunity reigns in the Executive Branch — as it very clearly does now — neither citizens nor Senators are safe from anything.
