Josh has it right.
Remember, "the absolute... spells doom to everyone when it is introduced into the political realm." (Arendt).
And, we're dealing with constitutional crisis here with what's being called "Snoopgate." I don't like that term, by the way. I think of the Red Baron on a doghouse, pumpkin patches, and lemonade stands. This is much more serious than snooping in the medicine cabinet of a host. More like Constitution-Gate. We have a criminal for president, not a beagle.
