  • Oh dear. Look whose ox got gored....

    The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, launching a rare challenge against the CIA, claimed Tuesday that the agency may have committed a crime by allegedly spying on committee staffers.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., addressed the controversy in a scathing address on the Senate floor. She claims the CIA improperly searched a stand-alone computer network established for Congress as part of its investigation into allegations of CIA abuse in a Bush-era detention and interrogation program.

    The California Democrat said the CIA searched the network this past January, an act she claimed may have violated the Constitution and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. She confirmed that the matter has been referred to the Justice Department by the CIA inspector general.

    "Based on what Director [John] Brennan has informed us, I have grave concerns that the CIA search may well have violated the separation of powers principles embodied in the United States Constitution including the Speech and Debate clause," she said. "It may have undermined the constitutional framework essential to effective congressional oversight of intelligence activities or any other government function."
    Suddenly it's not just the peons any more. DiFi can't have that, I'm sure.
    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

    Unlike the rest of us, she probably has done criminal stuff on her devices.
