It has come to my attention, that recently, this Committee has not only been targeting WikiLeaks but also it’s supporters. It appears that you have forgotten your vows to uphold the Constitution in doing so. Not only have you violated the First Amendment Right to free speech and free press but you have violated the American People’s 4th amendment rights to privacy. I am completely disgusted with this committee and feel that it’s members should resign immediately.
The First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States clearly states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
When you attack Wikileaks, you attack the press. Wikileaks has never had to retract a story in 11 years and has won all court cases that challenged the authenticity of its documents. The only reason you are aiming at Wikileaks is because you know it has exposed government corruption, war crimes and your own ineptitude. We The People deserve transparency and to know when our own government is committing crimes against us as well as other people in the world. Your obvious witch hunt will only lead to the prosecution of innocent people who only wanted the truth to be seen and heard.
Recently, Diane Feinstein requested the Direct Messages of Julian Assange and Wikileaks from Twitter. This included American citizens messages and is an encroachment on the 4th amendment and our rights to privacy. By looking at personal messages, you infringe upon our personal space and We The People are not happy about this. It is none of your business what a private citizen chooses to disclose to Wikileaks or Assange. You were not elected to violate our rights as voters in this country.
I demand that you stop this witch hunt and close this investigation immediately and cease from targeting US Citizens and the press. Remember, we put you in office to represent us, you are not rulers of the people.
