There is no constitutional fight. There are a bunch of criminals trying to abuse the Constitution to cover up their crimes. Nothing new about that. Bush is a coward.

I believe the below is pretty darn clear -- Representatives involved in any illegal activity has NO protection from the Law or Constitution any more than you and I do.
Now, the question is what new amendment do they add/pass to the Constitution to protect themselves? I SAY WE VOTE THEM ALL OUT OF OFFICE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

___Copied & Pasted from Article for Reference___
The clause in the Constitution is intended to protect lawmakers from being punished for what they say and do in Congress. It says:'For any speech or debate in either house, they shall not be questioned in any other place.' The Supreme Court has ruled that this privilege applies to official duties and is not a shield for criminals.
In 1972, the justices upheld a bribery charge against former Maryland Sen. Daniel B. Brewster, saying the clause did not 'make members of Congress super-citizens, immune from criminal responsibility.' In that decision, Chief Justice Warren E. Burger wrote,'Taking a bribe is, obviously, no part of the legislative process or function.'
