Most of Washington, D.C. is a bit busy tonight wrangling over the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill and the threat of another government shutdown, but Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Sen. Dianne Feinstein is desperately hyping the so-called “torture report” released Tuesday.
Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan gave a rare public press conference earlier today to defend his agency from accusations levied in that report, but lest anyone be swayed, Feinstein launched a #ReadTheReport hashtag to rebut Brennan.
And don’t try to use the excuse that you still haven’t finished reading the Obamacare bill; Feinstein says the 6,700-page report also comes with a handy 500-page executive summary.
So, just #ReadTheReport, OK? Especially you, Brennan. Here’s a selected sample of Feinstein’s tweets.
If you can’t spare the time to read even the 500-page executive summary, former Vice President Dick Cheney managed to offer his own executive summary yesterday in just six words.
