John Solomon, The Hill
America owes a debt of gratitude to the CIA and our other intelligence agencies for the unheralded work they do each day to keep us safe from a rising tide of counterterrorism, counterespionage, cyber attacks and foreign threats.
But that pride, appreciation and trust of the American people does not give license for their leaders to mislead Congress, to trample the Constitution or to interfere with lawful whistleblowing.
The current administration would do well to serve notice to the Clappers and Brennans of the world that such behavior should, and will, be punished.
