Congress wakes up; the NY Times notices

The New York Times' editorial on May 26 begins this way:

"Republicans and Democrats in the House of Representatives have achieved an almost unprecedented level of bipartisanship in denouncing the F.B.I.'s search of a congressman's office. They talk angrily about the separation of powers and the implications of having an executive branch agency make a foray into a lawmaker's official space. Our first question is where all these concerned constitutionalists have been for the last five years."

I've been wondering the same thing for a while (of course I'm far from the only one.)

It's nice to see the MSM focusing on this problem too.
