House Intelligence chief Rogers doesn't think CIA spied on Senate

Source: The Hill / CNN

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) said Sunday he doesn’t think the CIA spied on the Senate.

Rogers said it’s clear that someone at the CIA “overstepped their bounds,” but he also defended the agency during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union."

The House intelligence chief said the story of the CIA’s dispute with the Senate is a complicated one, but he added that the “notion” that the CIA “hacked” into congressional computers” is wrong.

“Remember, these weren’t Senate computers, these were CIA computers at the CIA,” he said.

“Somebody needs to be held accountable. This is very serious. But I don’t think this is some conspiracy notion that they wanted to spy on either of our committees,” Rogers said. “That of course would be intolerable. I think (it) would be a crime.

1. Makes ya wonder what they got on Rogers.

Clandestine affair?

Bribes from Arabs?

Maybe simple kickbacks on government contracts?

3. Exactly!

Which would also demonstrate they operated outside the scope of their function. At least perceived by the rest of us.

4. ''You can't have your privacy violated if you don't know your privacy is violated.''

Watch Rep. Mike Rogers Give the Most Pathetic Defense Of NSA Spying Yet

By Rachel Pincus
News.mic, Nov. 1, 2013

Are you a date rapist, Peeping Tom, or kleptomaniac? Then you might find an ally in Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.). After debating with three panelists at a House Intelligence Committee hearing Thursday about whether the NSA has the right to search business records in pursuit of terrorist connections, Rep. Rogers said, "I would argue the fact that we haven't had any complaints come forward with any specificity arguing that their privacy has been violated, clearly indicates, in 10 years, clearly indicates that something must be doing right. Somebody must be doing something exactly right."

Law Professor Steven Vladek, the only person in the hearing who didn't simply agree with Rogers's views, asked "But who would be complaining?" and Rogers responded, "Somebody whose privacy was violated. You can't have your privacy violated if you don't know your privacy is violated."

Rogers speaks of privacy as if it is a principle that can only be violated as an abstract concept — if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, then it doesn't make a sound because sound is just a concept, right? Wrong. Privacy is more than just conceptual, and if the government has information on someone, they may not be acting on it now, but the possibility of future abuse is always there. And who would complain about abuse that is happening in the future?

The Senator in Godfather II came immediately to mind.

17. Yes, and Dulles had all the "skill sets" of those employed in Dr. G's Health Alteration Committee.

 

I remember some of Dr. Sidney Gottlieb's CIA Health Alteration Committee's Greatest Hits foreign and domestic as well as some of the more recent targets.

5. Sometimes hearts are broken after investigations does not turn up the aha moment they

Are hoping will happen. When this first hit the news I thought the CIA was in the different congressional offices with tents over their heads and monitors a d stealing files. Say it ain't so.

7. I think it is so. Senate staffers assured they had secure access...

...then no access and were accused of things they did not do by CIA.

History may not repeat, but it sure does echo. SOP from when George Joannides was appointed to serve as liaison with House Select Committee on Assassinations staff. What he did was obstruct justice.

9. This whole "CIA spied on the Senate"...

... affair is just a bureaucratic, in-fighting, pissing match. It has no more significance than Issia pissing and moaning about the IRS not giving him everything he asks for.
