Will be able to report more completely. Have been in discussions with members on Capitol Hill trying to get a sense if this crisis in NSA is being taken as serious or they assume it will blow over with the next sport’s game as usual. There is no doubt that Feinstein knew as well as the Republicans the full scope of this crisis and have supported whatever the NSA has done full boat. Most other members at least knew. For the past couple of years it has been present in jokes that everything was swept up headed for Utah.
Previously to skirt around the law, the Brits were vacuuming up US calls and emails and the US was doing that in the UK. Then each swapped and could claim neither violated their local laws. This has been going on since 911.
