I don’t ‘get’ Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein …


She could really make a difference but she doesn’t it.  She gets angry and announces her anger at the microphones almost to the point where you think heads will roll… she has power…. but then appears to do zero about it.   Lots of bark, but no bite.  It happened in January / February…and then yesterday about Bergdahl.  

The second thing…why does she agree to so many classified (closed) hearings?  All hearings should be OPEN…and then if, and only if, a genuine classified matter arises that relates to national security, the hearing should temporarily go behind closed doors for that narrow issue.  And once off the narrow issue, doors should open…and open wide.  

In DC there is so much over classification, and over closing of hearings and briefings.
