One Day after Rolling Out “Comprehensive Review,” Feinstein Proceeds with Mark-Up Anyway

Yesterday, Dianne Feinstein announced, “a total review of all intelligence programs … so that members of the Senate Intelligence Committee are fully informed as to what is actually being carried out by the intelligence community.”

Today, her committee will nevertheless conduct a mark-up of her bill to not fix the spying targeted at Americans.

Umm, given that she just admitted she doesn’t know everything the NSA has been doing — and that she hasn’t been fully informed — don’t you think the comprehensive review should precede the new legislation?

emptywheel @TimothyS Very good skill everywhere. Too much college writing instruction is abt English papers, not even--say--science lab reports.

emptywheel Clapper's description of the unpredictable instability of the world is pretty damning if you're the world's hegemon. https://t.co/EZw06bBcoC

emptywheel @steve_vladeck I'd be at least as interested in whether it would cover DNA, bc I've suspected they've done that, too.

emptywheel @michaelwhitney Don't think that's please. At least in my house that's "Cmon, how many times do I have to remind you morning routine?"

emptywheel @DaveedGR I'm not sure ANY of that follows. Press is very selective abt what and where it covers.

emptywheel @sbagen You're complaining about sun? You can have light or heat. Not both. Until June.
