Just released from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, reacting to the National Security Agency’s surveillance “overcollection”:

“These are serious allegations, and we will make sure we get the facts,” said Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. “The Committee is looking into this, and we will hold a hearing on this subject within one month.”

Feinstein is one of the prime enablers of a legal regime that provides for few checks on goverment power, and led to predictable excesses on the part of the NSA. I have no faith in her on this topic. It's laughable to expect her to provide any meaningful oversight.
