Entry Title Date
Congressional Authority Versus Presidential Authority February 11, 2015
David Jolly, R-FL
"This body, this Congress rejected the President’s negotiation of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 and 1920. This body rejected the President’s negotiation of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty in 1999. This body did that, reflecting the will of our constituents, of this Nation. This body, very importantly, investigated the Iran-Contra affair. This body investigated the intelligence activities related to 9/11. This body investigated the events of 2011 in Libya."
Department Of Homeland Security Funding February 4, 2015
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"One of the chief criticisms of the 9/11 report was that we need to improve intelligence information sharing between the intelligence community and our first responders on the ground."
Honoring The Life Of Edward Cabell Brand January 30, 2015

"Mr. Brand continued his studies at the Harvard Business School and at the University of Virginia. He became an economic analyst in the Intelligence Office of Berlin’s Military Government and with the United States Foreign Service in Europe. By the end of his military service, Mr. Brand held the rank of Captain, and also received the Bronze Star."
Combating Terrorism January 28, 2015
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"On one occasion, the Attorney General basically said there are issues here of privilege, and my point was—and is—you gave them to the terrorists; surely, you can give them to Members of Congress. But the answer is, no, they can’t. They are going to keep obfuscating. They don’t want us to see all of the documents that they had in their possession that they gave to the terrorists. I have a feeling, if we saw all of the documents, it would be very, very clear in the purging that this administration has done of our training materials of the FBI’s, of the intelligence agency’s, of the State Department’s, and the Justice Department’s that, if there is anything that might bother a radical Islamist who wants to kill us, then it has to be removed. They removed it."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 351, Lng Permitting Certainty And Transparency Act January 27, 2015
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"I would like to have the gentleman who was called upon as a foreign affairs expert—because he serves on the Foreign Affairs Committee—to know, then, that I guess I too am a foreign affairs expert since I served on that committee for 8 years, served on the Intelligence Committee for 8 years. All of the countries that the gentleman mentioned, I have been to."
