A bit more ...

"bound by oaths of office to hold their tongues"
This has annoyed me for years ... these "oaths" seem to override the Speech and Debate Clause -- "for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place." Never quite got that. Talking out on the floor against executive overreaching seems to uphold oaths, even if the clause literally leaves open legislative penalties.
