These 8 people are responsible for seeing that the Russia-Trump investigation is done correctly [View all]

They are known as The Gang of Eight.
We need to pressure them to be accountable, esp. Pelosi.


One of the least understood aspects of congressional oversight is the elite group of elected politicians who are charged with congressional oversight over all intelligence activity.

The Gang of Eight are briefed on every covert operation that our various intelligence agencies carry out.
They are directly responsible for oversight of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

The Go8 are responsible for overseeing all executive office policy as it relates to intelligence gathering and corresponding activity.

In short these eight elected representatives are in charge of all oversight of all U.S. intelligence operations, open and covert.
