Carol Platt Liebau: The Arrogance of Washington’s Permanent Bureaucracy

View descriptionShare

It’s hard to unite Senate Democrats and Republicans these days. But Biden’s National Intelligence Director, Avril Haines, has managed to do just that.

She’s refused to show members of the Senate Intelligence Committee copies of the classified documents discovered in Donald Trump and Joe Biden’s possession. Her excuse? The special counsel investigations of both.

What nonsense. As Democrat Mark Warner pointed out, the Senate Intelligence agency was regularly briefed even as a Special Counsel investigated Donald Trump for supposed collusion with the Russians.

At this point, with many Americans doubtful about its integrity and motives, the intelligence bureaucracy would be wise to choose transparency. Instead, it’s raising bipartisan suspicions. And it’s highlighting once again the arrogance of Washington’s permanent bureaucracy.

There’s a problem when unelected, unaccountable officials feel so invincible they can treat the people’s representatives so dismissively.

It’s just one more sign that it’s time for fundamental reform of America’s intelligence services.
