Dennis Kucinich writes a letter to Holder asking for info about FBI raids on activists

The Committee to Stop FBI Repression has released a letter, written by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), asking Attorney General Eric Holder about the infiltration of anti-war activism in the Midwest, and subsequent issuance of Grand Jury subpoenas to members of those activist groups. Kucinich challenges the use of the "material support" for terrorism clause against the activists and points out that the DOJ has refrained from investigating high-level government officials who publicly endorse the MEK, a group on the government's list of foreign terror organizations. He asks:

How do you reconcile that inaction with the apparent overkill that has been directed at the anti-war activists in Minneapolis and Chicago?
