Letter: Silencing of Sen. Warren was wrong

There seem to be several things wrong with the recent silencing of Elizabeth Warren on the Senate floor.

One comment I have read highlights the worst. If a senator cannot say anything negative about another senator, one put forward as a candidate for a cabinet post, the confirmation process becomes useless. This silencing goes against the very notion of oversight.
