Most likely case:
* Obama ordered the CIA to spy on Feinstein.
* Holder provided FBI assistance to the CIA
* Feinstein Staff noticed loss of files on Computer and made a CYA Midnight Requisition of CIA Files
* CIA told Holder of “theft” of CIA files
* Holder and Feinstein had words
* Feinstein called Holder’s bluff and spoke for 38 minutes on the Senate Floor.
BTW, Feinsten had more backbone that all of the RINOS in the US House and Senate, IMHO, of course.
Probably unnecessary. Senate staff was accessing computers set up by CIA to search all CIA records related to the matter in question.
CIA has a responsibility to monitor those computers to ensure classified information is not handled inappropriately.
I would not be surprise if Obama was oblivious, as he is on most matters.
Your synopsis is well thought out and prioritized. Diane has nothing to lose, and since her latest attempt to restrict ownership of ‘assault’ weaponry went nowhere, she’s got an axe to grind. It seemed like a shoe-in. The lack of support for what was to be her signature piece of legislation baffled and humiliated her. At over eighty years old, she may as well go out in an altruistic blaze of glory, high on her horse of righteousness, Obots be damned!

Maybe so, bur just watched Ron Fornier on Kelly. He was basically saying that the Congress has failed for years to do its job of oversight on the Spy Agencies, and that they were complicit in leaking sensitive documents so the Agencies didn’t trust them. so now the Congress “finds out” that they’ve been spied on,( oh the horror of it all), so now they’re finally going to do their job, maybe. BTW, I wouldn’t trust that old Commie Fineswine as far as I could throw her, and I’d like to see what the NSA has on her and her hubby with respect to their “financial dealings” with the government. The old crow needs to go!
