ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, decries the CIA spying on Congress as a violation of the separation of powers (“John Brennan admits CIA improperly hacked into Senate computers,” Web, July 31). However, the Democrats are very selective as to when they choose to invoke charges of violations of the separation of powers.

President Obama changed legal mandates in Obamacare 40 times and chose to disregard immigration laws for the same reason — his political agenda. Where were Sen. Feinstein and her Democratic colleagues on those violations of separation of powers? They were silent because they have the same political agenda. With Democrats, laws apply only if they fit the Democratic agenda.
