And speaking of technology and privacy: if Sen. Feinstein isn’t safe, no one is safe

It may sound like something from House of Cards, but it appears (or it has been alleged, at the very least) that the CIA is now hacking the U.S. Senate.

Here's the Post's lede describing the speech on the Senate floor today by Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California:

The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday sharply accused the CIA of violating federal law and undermining the constitutional principle of congressional oversight as she detailed publicly for the first time how the agency secretly removed documents from computers used by her panel to investigate a controversial interrogation program.

Several Republicans seemed to shy away from commenting, but not South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who had this remarkable reaction, as reported by CNN: "[T]he legislative branch should declare war on the CIA, if it's true."

You've got to read the rest of the story for yourself.

As when the sequester started affecting Congress members' own flights (thereby prompting action), this incident might bring the privacy issue home for some in Congress.
