Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Kingpin Designation Improvement Act Of 2016 May 10, 2016
David Cicilline, D-RI
"I would like to thank Representative Katko and Representative Rice for introducing this bill, H.R. 4985, the Kingpin Designation Improvement Act, which helps ensure that Federal courts can review sanctions against drug kingpins without forcing law enforcement or the intelligence community to publicly release classified information."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 9, 2016
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"I will oppose the Cotton amendment, No. 1, because if it were adopted, it would create the possibility that Iran’s heavy water might be purchased not by the United States for peaceful purposes but will be purchased by countries like North Korea that might use it to make nuclear weapons; and No. 2, I think it would be more appropriate to have the Foreign Relations Committee, the Armed Services Committee, or the Intelligence Committee consider it. For those reasons, I intend to vote against the Cotton amendment."
Energy And Water Development Appropriations Bill May 9, 2016
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"I would think there would be no issue that would be more suitable for discussion by the Foreign Relations Committee or the Armed Services Committee or the Intelligence Committee, nor can I think of many issues less suitable just to pop up as an amendment on an appropriations bill. If we can’t decide issues like this that are filled with national security implications, why do we have a Foreign Relations Committee? Why do we have an Armed Services Committee? Why do we have an Intelligence Committee?"
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 27, 2016
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"Just to repeat, over the weekend, the U.S. Department of Energy, without any consultation with anybody in the Senate that I know about—without the Intelligence, Armed Services, or Foreign Relations Committees—decided it was going to buy heavy water from Iran. The Senator from Arkansas introduced an amendment on the subject."
40Th Anniversary Of The Release Of The Church Committee Report April 26, 2016
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"On this day in 1976, the first of five books detailing egregious abuses of power by the intelligence community was released by the Church Committee. The report was the first ever comprehensive oversight study of the intelligence community, which had operated largely without any oversight since its founding during World War II. Prior to this study, the Intelligence Committees did not exist in either the Senate or the House, and there was no formal apparatus to check the actions of the Nation’s intelligence community."
