Default Definition of Irony: Feinstein and alleged CIA spying

Sen. Feinstein: CIA illegally searched Senate computers | Ars Technica


Hahaha. Apparently its a 4th amendment violation to spy on senators and their committes, but not on US citizens?

ON CIA spying on Feinstein and Senate Intelligence Committee:
"I have grave concerns that the CIA's search may well have violated the separation of powers principles embodied in the United States Constitution,"

On NSA spying on 'Murica:
“lawful, effective and constitutional”

(can't seem to find the original quote about the NSA...if anyone can point me to it, I would appreciate it.)

In the Constitution's articles defining the separation of powers, I'm having trouble finding the part that details the CIA. Perhaps Feinstein could point it out for us commoners.

I'm trying to find the part where Trolls are allowed to hold high office.

I believe that's under "QUALIFICATIONS."

Silly me, it's right there in Section 3.

Some pigs are more equal than others.

The root of the problem is people give gov't way more legitimacy than history shows it deserves.
