Feinstein: CIA Searched Intelligence Committee Computers (Referred to DOJ for criminal probe)
The Washington Post ^ | Tuesday, March 11, 2014 | Ed O'Keefe

Posted on 03/11/2014 6:51:14 AM PDT by kristinn

The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday publicly accused the CIA of secretly removing documents from computers used by her panel to investigate the agency's controversial interrogation program and said that an internal agency investigation of the action has been referred to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said the activities of agency officials "May have undermined the constitutional framework" of congressional oversight.

The situation amounted to an attempted intimidation of congressional investigators, she said, adding: "I am not taking it lightly."

Keep it up Biotch.

I suspect some very unflattering information on crooked deals your hubby was involved in on deals you oversaw while serving on Committees will soon come to light.

Like maybe importing those evil Assault Weapons?

"May have undermined the constitutional framework" of congressional oversight."

So, Obama's next, right?

DiFi is a complete hypocrite.

She's TOTALLY OK with any and every agency taking whatever information they can from the citizenry...without warrant or good cause...but when it's HER computer she wants criminal charges.

This illustrates as clear as any other action why we must be rid of all these folks.

Trials and hangings are really the only good answer left.

Feinstein: CIA Searched Intelligence Committee Computers (Referred to DOJ for criminal probe)

If the DOJ takes up the probe, I wonder what the behind-the-scenes look like.

The DOJ is a full-on criminal enterprise these days, selective;y prosecuting crimes in such a way as to become a law unto themselves. Every single action they undertake is meant to undermine Conservatives and / or Republicans, enrich Democrats, or further a far-left agenda.

So, if they probe the CIA, then the CIA is falling to the right of center in some way. What way can that be?

The KGB took over the Russian organs of government. Could that ever happen here? I'd rather some semi-right-wing CIA spooks run the show than this whacked-out administration.

If we're gonna have a coup, let's have it by the JCS. On top of the table. Wearing uniforms.

Some guys we have a reasonable basis to trust.

I could go for that, but they gotta relinquish back to civilian leaderdership after a few adjustments:

1) Mandantory and full vetting of all Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates. If you were not born ON AMERICAN SOIL to TWO AMERICAN PARENTS, you lose.

2) Disbanding or severely curtailing: The EPA, the DHS, the TSA, the DOE, and restrict the FCC to broadcast-only decisions.

3) The IRS would have a permanent oversight branch dedicated to keeping it honest.

4) The DOJ would have a permanent oversight branch dedicated to preventing partisan prosecutions and selective law enforcement.

5) The NSA would answer directly to Congress on its day to day activities. All domestic-citizen records immediately purged, heavy prison time for any employee who collects ANYTHING about ANY private citizen, including Islamic terrorist types. We have other ways to deal with them.

Senator Feinstein, before you pursue this any further, would you like to consider the contents of this folder regarding how your husband got the exclusive deal to sell off post offices around the entire country?

I think you are missing the point of what the CIA now does. They are the leg-breakers for the NWO crowd. I'm convinced that the CIA, spawned from the OSS, has become a rogue agency that no longer serves the security interests of the American people, but takes their orders from the same people who give orders to the sideshow barker Obama.

We really do have a shadow government and the CIA enforces their will. Were I president, I would find the most patriotic top officers at the Pentagon and mount a raid of the Langley facility, surrounding the building with armor and air power, cutting all power and sending in SpecOps teams to clear the building.

Feinswine can’t be serious.

Does she think that the Eric Holder “Just Us” dept will investiage anything they consider to be “on the wrong side of history”?

If she does, then she’s more idotic than I thought, as impossible as that may seem.

What we are seeing is a run up to a coup in the ruling elite.

Who was the CIA giving the data to?

Unless DiFi is going against the Obumba mafia, there really isn;t much reason for this...unless, Obamba and ValJar, etc. are going to start bribing these folks (white pols) just for fun and profit! It is entirely possible and would be really effctive!

Most likely she (and her defense industry husband) should be in prison for their many, many crimes. What is good for the goose is good for the gander, no?

This really makes me wonder why David Petraeus resigned as head of the CIA. No, I don’t believe it was due to an affair.

Lets compare and contrast the IRS Scandal vs the CIA scandal.

Watch the media light up 24/7 in concert with Feinstein.

Watch Dems play Hardball with he investigation

Compare with the weak media coverage on IRS.

Compare with the TIMID investigation mounted by Repubs.

We are about to get a model example of how dems in congress with their lap-dog media go after a federal agency they don't like.
