New guy not making any friends.
Check it out:
A senior member of a key House Intelligence panel says he’s “surprised” and “taken aback” by the confrontational response from CIA Director John Brennan to allegations that his agency spied on a Senate committee.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) spying charges are “very serious” and warned that Brennan’s aggressive reaction risks undermining the relationship between Congress and the CIA.
“I can understand, as a relatively new director, his wanting to go to bat to support his agency. But I don’t think a confrontation with the Senate is in either his interest or the interest of the agency,” Schiff said Friday during taping of C-Span’s “Newsmakers” program, which will air Sunday. “So I’ve been a little bit taken back by the degree to which they have, you know, really kind of pushed back without any kind of conciliation on this.”
