To the Editor:
       Our CIA has no legal authority to spy on citizens in the U.S. That's not just courtesy to our FBI; it's the law.  Whoever took senator Feinstein's files (regardless of what computer she used) and whoever ordered that taking, and whoever condoned that taking need to be tried and imprisoned.  Because "merely" covering up crimes of an earlier administration is no excuse. It's a crime. That means John Brennan in the dock, as well as Eric Holder and Barack Obama.
   Our republic cannot function without balance of powers. That requires push-back when a CIA (reporting to the Executive) intrudes on a committee of the Legislative. And since our Attorney General won't prosecute, the last remaining tool is impeachment.
