    I don't know that Congressional Immunity extends to obstruction of justice, esp. if it's not done on the floor of Congress (e.g., the sabotage I mentioned)

    Also -- a lot of non-Congresspersons are engaging in sabotage and maybe obstruction of justice.

      who thinks anyone at the DoJ would ever try to bring forward a case against any member of Congress for the failure to pass legislation, or sedition, or obstruction of justice, or sabotage. No one in the Holder Justice Department will bring any legal action against any member of Congress. They wouldn't embarrass themselves, or the DoJ.
