Feinstein’s Bill to Kill Free Speech of Independent Journalists Has Votes in Senate

Following the disclosures of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) went to work to attack the First Amendment just as viciously as she has been attacking the Second and Fourth. Now the legislation she pushed for so vigorously, hypocritically titled the Free Flow of Information Act of 2013 (Here is the Senate and House versions of the bill and Feinstein’s amendment), is said to have the necessary votes to pass in the United States Senate.

Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) said the bill has 60 votes already behind it at the “Sources and Secrets” conference in New York on Friday.

“It’s very, very likely the Senate will pass a bill this year,” Schumer said. “Just about every Democrat is for the bill. … We have five Republicans on record being for it; three of them are co-sponsors.”
