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 @KevinBankston (In other words, I would call it willful refusal to review public history of phone dragnet and 215, but that is your choice).

emptywheel @KevinBankston Only bc you believe the many things IC has been telling us since 2009 that they can't do don't exist.

emptywheel @KevinBankston It says he thinks extension (not reauth) most likely. And we KNOW that IC gets far more out of reform than straight reauth.

bmaz @walterwkatz Will be lot easier for defense if they can shift venue to a nice white suburb, which they are already trying to lay ground for

bmaz @walterwkatz I think prosecution will be fine, tho may lose a few counts along the way. We'll see; too early now.

bmaz @walterwkatz Quite true. I checked into background of the two prosecution team leaders, Janice Bledsoe+Michael Schatzow, and they are superb
