Sen. Leahy Addresses Senate After Sen. Feinstein's Remarks on CIA monitoring Senate Intel Committee
WASHINGTON (TUESDAY, March 11, 2014) – Following the remarks of Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) Tuesday morning on the Senate Floor, revealing that the Central Intelligence Agency secretly collected documents from Senate Intelligence Committee computers, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) Tuesday took to the Senate Floor in support of Feinstein, calling her speech one of the most important he has ever heard on the Floor.
“She has spoken to our conscience,” said Leahy. “Now, let’s stand up for this country. Let’s stand up as United States Senators should, and as the Senator from California has.”
