The Founders were all, like, “pics or it didn’t happen”

Representative Peter King is kind of squishy on that whole 5th Amendment thingy:

Rep. Peter King (N.Y.), the top Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, wants to know whether the Justice Department consulted with the intelligence community.

“I hope that [Attorney General Eric] Holder did discuss this with the intelligence community. If they believe they got enough from him, how much more should they get? Did they Mirandize him? I know he’s an American citizen but still,” King told POLITICO.

Which is why the Founders, in their infinite wisdom, loaded up the Constitution and Bill of Rights with lots of qualifiers like, “more or less”, “kinda sorta”, “close enough for government work”, “whatev’ no biggie”, “if it’s cool with everyone”, “mulligan!” and “doesn’t apply to Muslims”.

You can look it up….
