Senator Richard Burr: Democracy? What Democracy?

Quote of the Day:

“I personally don’t believe that anything that goes on in the intelligence committee should ever be discussed publicly,” he told reporters. “Certainly classified information, it’s breaking the law to discuss that. If I had my way, with the exception of nominees, there would never be a public intelligence hearing.”

— Senator Richard Burr (R-NC)

Just a reminder that many elected officials in Washington, D.C. are not great believers in the necessity of public oversight, particularly when it involves them spying on the public.
