The CIA’s “Intelligence Authorization Act” Would Criminalize Whistleblowers And Reporters

817

Via MassPrivateI blog,

A CIA-written Bill called the Intelligence Authorization Act (SB 3153) would criminalize whistleblowers and reporters.

Section 733 Sense of Congress on WikiLeaks:

“It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States.”

The Bill is also known as the Damon Paul Nelson and Matthew Young Pollard Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2018, 2019, and 2020 (H.R. 3494).

Demand Progress warned,

“House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is once again putting the interests of the intelligence agencies in concealing their misdeeds ahead of protecting the rights of ordinary Americans by criminalizing routine reporting by the press on national security issues and undermining congressional oversight in his Intelligence Authorization bill,” Daniel Schuman, policy director, of Demand Progress said.

He added:

“Schiff’s expansion of the Intelligence Identities Protection Act beyond all reason will effectively muzzle reporting on torture, mass surveillance, and other crimes against the American people — all at the request of the CIA. Schiff is clearly the resistance to the resistance, and he should drop this provision from his bill.

Ron Paul clarifies the real reason for this bill:

“The measure is designed – in the CIA’s own words – to prevent the kind of transparency that was provided by Wikileaks. It is a war on the free press!”

  1. So to be clear, before the Democratic congress tries to slap more limits on our freedom of speech, unless of course it’s one of their own beligerant colleagues putting on the lunatic show, we had better get our 2 cents in. I would like to start. I THINK I DOWNRIGHT HATE THE LAZY, THIEVING, GOOD FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS! THE ONLY THINGS THEY EXCELL AT IS ROBBING TAXPAYERS OF THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY, LIES, AND NAME CALLING! They all remind me of small children whose parents never taught them anything!

  2. The Democrats are at it again. Please write all your representatives in Congress and House to NOT sign these evil bills. This will completely stop “whistle blowing” It is a war on the free press.
    Why can’t they write some civilized bills: Such as “arresting Muller” He is a criminal..hopefully, our new AG will get around to it…he is an honest, decent, well informed attorney.

  4. And then there’s Frederica (Freak-a-rica) Wilson (D(of course!)-FL), who said recently that anyone who mocks (or “makes fun of”) a “member of Congress” online should be subject to prosecution.
    Yeah, go ahead and try it, bitch! Well, that’s not so much “mockery” as it is straightforward insulting, but to me, it fits! (you know, the ugly black woman who thinks she’s a rodeo queen).

  5. Adam Schiff is starting to get worried it seems about the forthcoming investigation reports about the attempt to “Unseat” President Trump during and after the 2016 election, may include him as one of the conspirators.
