Dianne Feinstein: White House to share legal opinions on armed drone strikes

The announcement comes the same day that the committee is set to vote on the nomination of John Brennan to be director of the CIA. The nomination had been delayed in part over concerns about the administration’s drone program.

“I have reached an agreement with the White House to provide the committee access to all OLC [Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel] opinions,” said Feinstein in a statement.

The senator said the release of the documents will allow Intelligence committee members to “fulfill their oversight responsibilities,” and set the stage for Brennan’s confirmation.
