Ah, once again, good folks.... we are a Constitutional Republic built on democratic principles with (at least, in principle) three separate but equal branches of government. Congress' job is to oversee and legislate. Period. We have (or we used to have before it became weaponized, as it has been) a Justice Department (and their related law enforcement agencies) whose job it is to investigate and enforce the laws of the land. The last thing we need is more Representatives grand-standing, spinning, and mugging for the cameras while not doing their sworn duty. And ditto to a lot of the other comments - like Joe's; but John, I hate to tell you, there isn't anything that is "free" except perhaps the love of your family and the family dog.
