You can thank our lovely Senator from Kansas for this one:
“An investigation at this point basically would be detrimental to this highly classified program and our efforts to reach some accommodation with the administration,” said Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas.
Roberts said he was arranging a deal with the White House to modify the 1978 law governing electronic surveillance and to provide members of Congress with more extensive briefings on the closely guarded National Security Agency program.
MotherFUCKERS. Oh, you broke the law? Don’t worry….we’ll work with you to modify the law AFTER you’ve broken it.
That’s it, folks. It was a nice democracy while it lasted.
I’m disgusted. I can’t even find the words.
