On Ensuring the Proper Use of Intelligence and Confidential Funds

We have organized and activated a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and Confidential Funds. Its primary function is to exercise congressional oversight on how such funds are utilized.

The Committee can demand, if it so desires, the submission of pertinent documents of confidential and intelligence funds (CIFs) such as approved intelligence project proposals and the like. The minority bloc is an indispensable part of the select committee.

The present Senate can constitute such a select committee by electing its members and thereafter exercise its functions.
