Fund also highlights how the claim that Rogers’ strong defense of the NSA appears to be out of ignorance of what’s going on is based on Rogers’ own quotes:
Back in July, House Intelligence Committee chair Mike Rogers claimed that there have been “zero privacy violations” on the part of NSA. After the leaked audit made news on Friday, he retreated to saying that “there was no intentional and willful violation of the law.”
A person who was really in charge of oversight would be demanding more information, public hearings and changes. But Rogers is doing none of that. How is he still in that job?
Because he is operating as the Ruling Party wants him to.
