"Victory for civil liberties in the U.S. House (Massie Amendment)"

This title is poppycock. This is no "major" victory. This is barely scraping at the edges of a veritable Mount Everest of criminality. This small amendment that adjusts the crime, that hasn't even seen the circular file of the Senate,(which it is sure to do in its current form) is a footnote at best.

Put Clapper in jail an start a full investigation that would still be only scratching the surface. They take a million steps forward it is no celebration when we make it only 999,999 for a day.
