Nothing will happen

The head of the CIA, a position that requires Senate approval, declines to answer questions from the Senate about his agency’s spying on the Senate.

Yet subpoenas will not be issued, contempt citations not issued, the sergeant-at-arms not called, U.S. Marshalls not sent to compel attendence at hearings.

Laws will not be passed, funding will not be cut to the agencies that refuse to allow oversight.

The CIA will continue to be incompetent in discerning the intentions of our enemies, e.g., gobsmacked by ISIL, but very competent in having blackmail information on members of Congress, which is all that matters.

In other news, the big plan is to arm Syrian rebels to fight ISIS. This should go well. About as well as training the Iraqi army, and arming them.
