Lawmakers skip NSA briefing to attend Paris air show

James Inhofe (R-Okla.), was able to attend the briefing, according to his office, and catch an evening flight to France, demonstrating it was possible to attend a briefing on a major political issue and still join the plush codel.

 

Sens. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) and Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) missed the 2:30 p.m. session to catch an afternoon flight from Dulles International Airport.
