This article will be short and to the point.
Unless Senator Diane Feinstein subpoenas CIA Director John Brennan and puts him under oath, she will not get to the truth about whether the CIA spied on the Senate Oversight Committee, or not. If she doesn't do this, then we will know that her alleged "upset" was nothing but an act.
One of the "national security" thugs, James Clapper, has already been caught perjuring himself. Upsettingly, he has not been prosecuted. But, let us find out what will, or should, happen to Brennan. Brennan, and whether he tells the truth or is caught in perjury. And, if he is caught in perjury, will he be prosecuted, as is the legal penalty?
This matter is very important, because some of us who have acted as experts believe that the CIA has been working out of bounds for some time,and doing what it wishes, and getting away with murder and other violations of the law and of the Constitution. The CIA was originally started to help our intelligence overseas, but in the past few decades it has intruded on domestic matters that are out its alleged boundaries.
THIS IS NOT A SMALL MATTER -- it is a threat, not only to the Oversight Committee and to our Constitution and to the "Democracy" we allegedly believe in. Thus, it is incumbent on Senator Feinstein to pursue this matter to the bottom of the truth, and if Brennan and the CIA have gotten out of hand, then he and the CIA must be reigned in and Brennan prosecuted.
Notice also, that Feinstein claimed that she wrote to Brennan about this matter way back in January 2014, but that he did not answer until today, when he chose to speak -- not to her or the committee on oversight -- but at the hawkish Council on Foreign Relations. That is a cop-out and we all know it; thus, Feinstein must subpoena him, or she will also be copping out.
Let us pepper Feinstein and Brennan with emails and letters to have him testify under oath before the senate committee on public media so that we can all find out as much truth as is possible to ascertain. In this way, perhaps we can pressure them both to do their jobs in a responsible manner, by serving the American people as they are charged to do.
