Well, Senator, since the Obama regime found out they can do whatever they want, like spying on every single American without any repercussions whatsoever, why wouldn’t they spy on you, too?

Apparently it’s only an outrageous crime when it happens to them. Cry us a river, Dianne, cry us a freaking river.

Via Washington Post.

The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday sharply accused the CIA of violating federal law and undermining the constitutional principle of congressional oversight as she detailed publicly for the first time how the agency secretly removed documents from computers used by her panel to investigate a controversial interrogation program.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said that the situation amounted to attempted intimidation of congressional investigators, adding: “I am not taking it lightly.”

She confirmed that an internal agency investigation of the action has been referred to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution. And she said that the CIA appears to have violated the Fourth Amendment, which bars unreasonable searches and seizures, as well as various federal laws and a presidential executive order that prevents the agency from conducting domestic searches and surveillance.

She has sought an apology and recognition that the CIA search of the committee’s computers was inappropriate, she said. “I have received neither,” she added.

    Glad someone is casting an eye on the politicians who seem to be guiding everyday citizens into the ditch. This senator had vastly increased her fortune while “serving” in the Senate.

    got interrupted & ran out of time above so here is the rest==> It’s Unconstitutional! It’s Unlawful! It’s outrageous. That is when it happens to the likes of Ms. Feinstein & her friends. When it happens to us normal everyday red, white and blue Americans, not so much I guess.

    Two comments: 1) Why are Republicans running away from Feinstein on this? Is it a program that Bush started and they were fully briefed on?

    “…The two most-senior Republicans on the Intelligence Committee, Sens. Saxby Chambliss (Ga.) and Richard Burr (N.C.), declined to discuss the specifics of Feinstein’s remarks. Chambliss rushed away from reporters after a midday vote….It’s not clear if she has the necessary votes to declassify the report. The Republicans on the committee had refused previously to participate in the report….”

    2) Article says documents removed were relative to a controversial interrogation program. What if the documents were removed because of concern that there are leads concerning Benghazi in them? Link to recent Fox story that former CIA head Petraeus and his deputy lied to Congress re Benghazi;

    OMG! Just wait until Feinstein hears that there is gambling in Rick’s Café….

    I liked Snowden’s quick response about the hypocrisy

    Well, if the CIAers have taken the oath, it’s to protect the Constitution from both enemies without AND within.

    NEWSFLASH!!!! They have found water at the bottom of the ocean!!!!

    Speaking of snooping in computers, haven’t heard anything recently about the snooping into Sharyl Atkisson’s computer. Hope her resigning from CBS doesn’t derail that. What a travesty that would be; journalist has computer searched, which in part, leads to journalist giving up job.

    in a slightly off topic vein, i emailed feinstein about her vote opposing the weaponization of the IRS against private citizens. her staff hasn’t written back but i shall surely toss the hypocrisy of spying on citizen ok, spying on senate not ok at her.
