    Ok, but it seems that where Congress Critters are concerned, a crime is hardly ever found, but if a civilian did the same thing it would be prosecuted to the fullest, and sentenced to the max..... so as citizens, is there any way for us to say "wait a minute bud" and get anywhere with it? In other words, is there a way to make them do their jobs?
    What exactly did these Congressmen do that violated a federal law?

    I doubt that you or I would be prosecuted for using our influence in the community to get favorable business deals. Congress is required to abide by a higher set of ethical principles.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I was asking a general question unrelated to a specific incident.
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.
