An hour and a half after my FutureOfCapitalism post taking issue with James Comey's tweet about the supposed importance to liberty of an "independent Department of Justice and FBI," the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Charles Grassley, made a similar point. Senator Grassley's tweet:
Law enforcement shld NOT be independent of constitutional oversight. Like the military, FBI/DOJ accountability to ELECTED leaders is essential for liberty. We are ACCOUNTABLE to the PEOPLE in our representative govt. Hoover FBI was unaccountable/did great harm w abuses of power
Good for Grassley.
