Where are the indictments?

Congress needs to be thinned out for they are not unlike an unhealthy overpopulated herd of deer, and since they are seemingly in the headlights of the derrivative holders and like-wise, just staring as if in a hypnotic trance, they are unable to perform their oath-sworn duties.
