Entry Title Date
Cloture Motion May 23, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, the Senate has demonstrated that the House-passed bill lacks the support of 60 Senators. I would urge a “yes” vote on the 2-month extension. Senator Burr, the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, and Senator Feinstein, the ranking member, as we all know, have been working on a proposal that they think would improve the version that the Senate has not accepted that the House sent over. It would allow the committee to work on this bill, refine it, and bring it before us for consideration. So the 2-month extension, it strikes me, would be in the best interest of getting an outcome that is acceptable to both the Senate and the House and hopefully the President."
Unanimous Consent Request—H.R. 2048 May 23, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"Mr. President, I would like to correct the majority leader, regretfully. I did not support the Burr bill. I do not believe that is the way to go. I have taken a good look at this. For those who want reform and want to prevent the government from holding the data, the FREEDOM Act is the only way to do it. The House has passed it. The President wants it. All of the intelligence personnel have agreed to it, and I think not to pass that bill is really to throw the whole program—that whole section 215 as well as the whole business records, the “lone wolf,” the roving wiretaps—into serious legal jeopardy."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 21, 2015
Al Franken, D-MN
"Mr. President, I rise today to speak in support of the USA FREEDOM Act of 2015. I am a proud cosponsor of this bicameral, bipartisan bill which brings much-needed reform to the Federal Government’s surveillance programs, including an end to the bulk data collection program that the intelligence community has said is not necessary, that the public has said they don’t support, and that the Second Circuit has ruled as unlawful. "
Benghazi Attack May 21, 2015
Lynn Westmoreland, R-GA
"In addition, hundreds of pages of emails never before seen by Congress have been produced by the White House. The Department of Justice and the intelligence community have also produced documents never before seen by Congress."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 20, 2015
Rand Paul, R-KY
"In a different way, we are talking about whether in the intelligence selector numbers a person is a corporation and whether can have a single warrant."
