Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes?

Rep. Jim Jordan, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has issued a subpoena for FBI Director Wray to testify about the agencies intelligence gathering activities aimed at the Catholic Church. A few weeks ago, news broke of an FBI office targeting enthusiasts of the Latin mass as extremists. It now turns out that the FBI has recruited at least one “undercover employee” to develop sources among the Catholic clergy and other church leaders.

IIRC, the Cheka and its successors down to the KGB infiltrated the Russian Orthodox Church with a goal of separating the people from religion and controlling what little of the church survived in public.

Jūdica me, Deus, et dicērne causam meam de gente non sancta: ab hōmine inīquo et dolōso ērue me.

UPDATE—For those of you who don’t know Latin:

Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the unholy nation, deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

That’s from Psalm 42, and it’s read as part of the Traditional Latin Mass for Easter Tuesday. It seems to fit the present situation.
