Laws are for little people. Any of us who ever held a security clearance of any level know what would have happened to us if we had so much as mislaid an item, never mind doing what these people did. Our "betters" must be free of such petty distractions.
If there was ever an indication that the politicians and their surrogates have separated themselves from we the people, this is absolute proof, they have deemed themselves above the law. We the people are now serfs.
