Posted on 02/04/2014 11:36:20 AM PST by quesney
The National Security Agency "probably" collects phone records of members of Congress and their staffs, a senior Justice Department official conceded Tuesday.
Deputy Attorney General James Cole buckled under questioning from multiple lawmakers during a House Judiciary Committee hearing reviewing proposals to reform the NSA's surveillance activity.

Remember the Martins and the Newt Gingrich cell phone call they “just happened” to record on a Radio Shack scanner?
This means we're in a police state operating under cover of extortion.
Just accidentally found a Petraeus infidelity.
We really need to elect some squeaky clean nerds and send them to Congress.
That General who demonstrably lied to Congress:
Why is he not in prison?
Feds: NSA Probably Spies on Members of Congress (explains weak-kneed GOP?)
Shoot, it might even explain our weak-kneed CJ/SCOTUS.
my first impression, also.
“Is this one of the reasons the GOP is so weak-kneed? “
I’ve often wondered if many congress people were compromised. Now it seems liklier.
This also explains why it’s important to elect people who have character.
TEA Party Members receive copies of all information gained from spying on Congress, Congress. Don’t want you boys and girls not knowing everything. Just putting this out in the interest of disclosure.
“Shoot, it might even explain our weak-kneed CJ/SCOTUS.”
Indeed - it’s hard to explain the tortured “logic” of his Obamacare decision otherwise.
What is more disturbing is the number of people who are elected/appointed to high office that have those kinds of skeletons and weak constitutions to get lead astray. Would they spy on me they would be very bored outside of my ammo purchases.
BOehner’s tanning secret may be in peril?
He say its real, only his phone records know for sure.
900 FBI files? NSA phone records?
What difference does it make?
White Rabbit ... Hi There nsa and congress ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9QDUyj9mAs
NSA has nothing to do with it.
Anyone else remember how confident 0bummer was that the PUBBIES would cave during the government shutdown?
He seemed to know exactly when they would cave as well.
Which made him not budge an inch.
This would explain that.
the purge will be of anyone wearing any kind of govt uniform. basically.
the good ones are being drummed out now anyway.
I think this is just blackmail writ large. They “accidentally” let slip that the NSA spies on everyone. Suddenly the GOP is constantly engaging in circular firing squads, and is no longer vertebrate.
Cruz must either have no skeletons, or he just don’t care.
Been there and done that at high volumes.
Support Eric Gurr to oust John Boehner in OH-8
Also, press your Representative to NOT support Boehner for Speaker - or Cantor, either!
Probably happened to the Supreme Court justices! Might explain John Roberts switching his obammacare vote??
I’m sure congress members, judges (SCOTUS), governors, generals, admirals; _anyone_ in a position of power in USG or other USA institution is now easily blackmailed by executive elements of USG.
I have it on good authority from a trusted person that obama plays this every morning when he gets out of his coffin ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izh73tjdIkU ... and they say vampires only come out at night?
Son, caught me one morning with the volume up and Son said, “Dad, you be rockin’ this morning.” LOL, Mission Accomplished. I woke Son up.
Egads. Are they expecting no electricity or hot water to shave with [or no barbers] soon?
In Your Honor onyx, JustAmy, and Jim ... I hope you like it ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVjezsQfrW0
Recall if you will, many years ago, The cell phone conversations of Newt and others were intercepted and recorded by a couple from Florida vacationing in DC with a radio shack device
BS...... Bubba ordered the NSA to get the goods on Newt
Is this one of the reasons the GOP is so weak-kneed?
— - - - - - - -
No doubt about it.
Holy cow! Is that picture legit??? He looks like he just got out of bed and didn’t have time to shave!
Obama is fully using the capabilities of the NSA on CJ Roberts and anyone who would oppose him. He's been doing it since day one and has continued. What has been revealed thusfar is only the tip of the NSA iceberg.
Look at what he has done to the military hierarchy. How do people think that newly tooled apparatus will be used when needed?
“...Hi There nsa...”
Tell them a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call.
"A fearless man cannot be controlled."
LOL ... I don’t smoke caterpillar any longer.
Well, they do if it's Justice Roberts nephew I suppose.
It must be legit ... I found it on Face Book...LOL.
I don’t KNOW!
I think John Eff Scary thinks he looks COOL.
Thanks very much!
I always liked that one from Jimmy Hendrix!
This song might be racist, if one buys into PC ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmjmlb7vpBU
This could become scary. Face Book is legit? I talked with son-in-law about Face Book. Son-In-Law installs security systems. He mentioned a room ... a large, very large room where the servers were and said ... "It looked legit."
That one too.....;-)
[ Is this one of the reasons the GOP is so weak-kneed? ]
That and probably a LOT of RINOs in the senate and house are so deep in the closet they are finding last years Christmas presents.
This makes them controllable / blackmail-able...
Shadows running from themselves.
The blackmail that goes with the spying probably has something to do with turning good Congressmen into big government socialist flacks.
No one is clean enough. No one at all. An actual indiscretion is not required. The recalcitrant Congressman can be charged with wearing the wrong color tie on his 14th birthday. The mighty indignation of the MSM and the Left will make the scandal to be whether he did it or not. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THE CHARGE IS, only whether the target denies it or confirms it or says he doesn’t remember. All that will be seen and heard is that he was charged with something heinous- it must be bad because all the MSM is so upset about it- and any reaction at all is taken by the MSM as confirming the “charge.” If he says he doesn’t remember then witnesses will be trotted out to say they say him in the wrong color tie and before you know it the disgraced Congressman takes an early retirement.
That occurred to me as soon as I heard he had caved.
"The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion." — Pv 28:1
Then there is another verse (I’ll paraphrase) where even Angels fear to tread.
