But was Reagan - dear, St. Ronnie - threatened with impeachment? Were members of his cabinet subpoenaed? Was there a whole series of "investigations" launched when the party in the house didn't get what they wanted from the ones released?
No. As the author of the article put it:

It's not the security of American government personnel working abroad. It's the behavior of American congressmen at home.
