Skip to comments.Inhofe wants to investigate NSA, following new report about surveillance

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, says new revelations about the National Security Agencys surveillance program suggest the Obama administration has abused the authority granted to them by Congress and that he will investigate the matter.
Inhofes statement shows a growing concern on Capitol Hill about the scope of the NSAs intelligence gathering and adds to the calls for additional congressional oversight.
The NSA broke privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted it broad new powers in 2008, according to an internal audit and other top-secret documents provided to The Washington Post, which first reported the story.

Is there any sane person who doesn’t believe Obama would use all tools available to game the system to his advantage?
Long winded politicians pontificating again. These chumps just want to hear themselves talk. Nothing will ever be done.
Exactly. Inhofe needs to retire. He will b 80 years old if he wins reelection. There was no tea party candidate to oppose him. He is a reliable conservative vote, in the end, but Oklahoma needs someone like Bridenstine in the House or Cruz.
Exactly. . . until we see action, everyone is lulled into apathy.
Criticizing the age of a conservative senator is a tactic of liberal democrat socialists.
I am sure that is probably true, which is why i would not do It. I would like to see them do something about it, but I know that nothing will be done.
Pointing out that someone has been in office almost as long as I have been alive is not a “tactic”....thereby rendering him 80 years old. Inhofe is a reliable vote, in the end, like I mentioned earlier, but it is time for him to retire. The House/Senate should not be a lifelong career choice.
