    Days after former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates confirmed the classified nature of months-old calls between Mike Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak, the House Ethics Committee has remained silent on whether it will look into complaints against Democratic members who discussed the substance of those classified calls publicly. The committee's avoidance of the allegations against Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff and Jackie Speier, both members of the House Intelligence Committee, comes after it swiftly took up complaints against the Republican chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, over a similar charge.
  • Intel chairman Nunes apologizes to panel, intel committee member said

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes met briefly with the rest of the committee Thursday morning, and according to one of those members, apologized after being questioned as to why he revealed he had seen intelligence memos concerning the Trump transition team without first sharing them with the rest of the committee. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., told CNN Nunes was asked by several members of the committee why he revealed his information the way he did, and "after a few minutes, Devin Nunes did apologize in a generic way." On Wednesday, Nunes told reporters in the Capitol he had seen...

"It would probably be helpful if he gave more information, but it also might be helpful if he just didn't comment further and allowed us to do our work," she said about the Intelligence Committee investigation.

Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis.

Trey Gowdy has been named to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. The South Carolina Republican, popular with the conservative wing of the GOP, was chair of the Select Committee on Benghazi and will now be tasked with the oversight of the United States intelligence community in his new committee.

    Good 6 1/2 minute video with Hayden. Former CIA Director Michael Hayden on Wednesday defended the agency’s post-9/11 interrogation methods, following the release of a Senate report that slammed their tactics as "brutal" and ineffective. “These interrogations … gave us kind of a Home Depot-like storage of information on Al Qaeda on which we relied,” Hayden told Fox News. “We are still relying on it today.” Hayden was one of the top-ranking intelligence officials in the federal government for a decade. He first served as director of the National Security Agency, before taking over at the CIA in 2006 during...

    Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has apologized for a “clearly erroneous” statement he made to Congress over the National Security Agency’s surveillance activity. In a letter to Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) released publicly on Tuesday, Clapper said he was mistaken when he told Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) that the United States did not collect data on millions of Americans. “My response was clearly erroneous — for which I apologize,” Clapper wrote in the letter dated June 21. “While my staff acknowledged the error to Senator Wyden’s staff soon after the hearing, I can now openly correct...

    Covertly taken photos of CIA interrogators that were shown by defense attorneys to al Qaeda inmates at the Guantanamo Bay prison represent a more serious security breach than the 2003 outing of CIA officer Valerie Plame, the agency's former general counsel said Wednesday. John Rizzo, who was the agency's top attorney until December, said in an interview that he initially requested the Justice Department and CIA investigation into the compromise of CIA interrogators' identities after photographs of the officers were found in the cell of one al Qaeda terrorist in Cuba. "Well I think this is far more serious than...

    So, whatever happened to the "secret" Democratic memos from the Intelligence Committee that that Republican staffer discovered? You know, the ones that showed the Dems' willingness to disrupt the War on Terror just so they could do a hatchet job on Bush? This issue seems to have dropped off the radar. And while I'm at it, let me just drag up ol' "secret docs in sox" Sandy Burglar, just to keep things current there too.

    Missed 38 of 49 public hearings in 8 years WASHINGTON – Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry missed most of the public hearings of the Senate Intelligence Committee during his eight years on the panel, according to his colleagues. During his tenure on the committee, which provides oversight of national intelligence agencies, Kerry was absent for 38 of 49 public hearings, according to Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga. "There's been a total avoidance of discussion of the voting record of John Kerry," said Chambliss last week, following Kerry's acceptance of the Democratic presidential nomination. "But that's not surprising. There's one area that...

    Republicans continue to press Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry to release his attendance records from his tenure on the Senate Intelligence Committee. Television ads that began airing Monday call into question the Massachusetts Democrat's commitment to reforming America's intelligence community. Kerry served on the panel from 1993 to 2000 and according to official records missed 76 percent of the public committee hearings during that time. During his eight years of service on the committee there were 49 open, public hearings. Of these 49, Kerry attended just 11. Among the most notable of those he missed is the June 8,...

I find it incredibly awful that a man boasts about being on the Senate Intel Committee if he's not there half the time, and if his time on that committee is the exact same time frame as the rebirth of Al Queda to the 911 plot.

When asked for more money, he tries to cut budgets, and post911/postIraq there are at least 6 reports showing that the intel community needed major oversight during the period (guess...)...

    Tonight on Fox News I heard something (while I was on the phone) about the Kerry campaign claiming that Johnny boy attended certain Intelligence Committee meetings or something, mistaking him in their claims for "Bob" Kerry, who actually attended those meetings. They looked really foolish, or so it seemed, but I did not catch it all. Can someone fill me in?

    In various press releases, including an August 6 "fact check," the Democrats have asserted that "John Kerry served on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence for 6 years and is the former Vice Chairman of the Committee." Eugene Volokh questions this claim: Now the Republican National Committee is pointing out -- correctly, I think, based on my quick search -- that Kerry never was the Vice Chairman of the Committee; that post was held by former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey. I've followed up on Professor Volokh's work and conducted my own research. Democrats won't be pleased with the findings.... Posted...

    Fox News just had a news segment where the Kerry campaign, in angry response to Bush claims that Kerry attended few Intelligence briefings, said that Kerry had at one time been the Vice-Chairman of the Intelligence campaign. In response, the Bush people gleefully (Fox's word) returned fire by saying that it was BOB Kerrey, not JOHN Kerry who was Vice-Chairman of the Intelligence committee.

John Kerry to release his Intelligence Committee attendance records on Sunday - as controversy swirled over claims that the top Democrat was mostly a no-show during important hearings. "The easiest way out of this is for John Kerry and John Edwards to request [Committee Vice Chairman] Sen. Rockefeller and myself to release the attendance [records]," Roberts told NBC's "Meet the Press."
