Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Bring Jobs Home Act—Motion To Proceed—Continued July 17, 2014
Lindsey Graham, R-SC
"As a matter of fact, our intelligence community tells us the program they have today has been put to military use. They denied that, but we can’t get to the bottom of it."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions July 14, 2014
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"In 2011, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony from the Justice Department and from experts in the area of contractor accountability about the many diplomatic and national security benefits of expanding criminal jurisdiction over American employees and contractors overseas. That hearing also explored how best to ensure that our Nation’s intelligence activities would not be impaired by CEJA. The legislation I propose today has been carefully crafted to ensure that the intelligence community can continue its authorized activities unimpeded."
Intelligence Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2014 June 24, 2014
Terri Sewell, D-AL
"Mr. Speaker, I stand in support of the Fiscal Year 2014 Intelligence Authorization Act. The annual authorization act is the most substantial oversight mechanism Congress has over the intelligence community."
Playing Politics For The Camera June 24, 2014
Steve King, R-IA
"As the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence delivers a bill to the floor about which most of us don’t have inside knowledge of, we have to keep in mind what has happened with the intelligence community and the results of the attacks that have taken place around the world. That takes me to what we saw, heard, and learned and thought we knew, to a greater degree than most Americans would agree did know, with regard to Iraq."
Department Of Defense Appropriations Act, 2015 June 23, 2014
Rush Holt, D-NJ
"My first amendment would set aside $2 million to expand the Intelligence Community Whistleblowing and Source Protection Directorate, which provides employees of the National Security Agency (NSA), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and other intelligence agencies with a safe, legal, and secure way to report abusive or unlawful practices. The amendment passed unanimously."
