Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) isn’t promising that heads are going to roll over the recent audit of the NSA, showing that the agency has overstepped its legal authority thousands of times a year. He is acknowledging, though, that in Washington, D.C., heads have to roll before rogue agencies can be reformed. Unfortunately, the administration has a sad history of sending the wrong heads rolling and then rearranging a few desks in a meaningless “reassignment.”
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper might have lied to Congress about the NSA’s data collection efforts, but now that he’s been put in charge of overseeing the reform effort, we’re sure he’ll find someone to throw under the bus.
@ChuckGrassley lol yeah right. we haven't fired anyone over a scandal in 5 years

@ChuckGrassley You are correct but we've had 5 years of this with not one individual being held accountable! The Congress seems toothless.

@ChuckGrassley The Obama administration has been violating the constitution regularly. What is congress going to do about that?

@ChuckGrassley Clapper purgered himself. Violated the law. Prosecute him.
