47. I disagree. I think with the right person in the Intel chair, we could at the very least DEMAND some
answers. Some honest answers. And if the WH won't provide them, then at least we're on the record for asking.

Again- it's very simple: The FISA courts are a historic rubber stamp of absurd proportions, and warrants for FISA spying can be issued 72 hours retroactively. So what, precisely, has the administration been up to where they consider FISA too much of a pain in the ass? And if they're not spying on Osama's "friends and family" network (The Carlylye Group would be an excellent place to start) but rather subverting the constitution to spy on, say, journalists and political opponents... well, I should think that impeachment being "off the table" could change very quickly with revelations like that.

But no one is going to ask the tough questions if the important positions are staffed with "friendly" Democrats who are "willing to work with the Administration".
