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?

bmaz @adamgoldmanwp @DanLamothe It's funny, I've not seen a single report mention his mother Krista, who was so central to C-4 when was younger.
