The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee isn’t buying the Obama administration’s excuse for why it kept her and Congress in the dark about the prisoner swap for Bowe Bergdahl. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said Friday she has “no information” that there was a “credible threat” against Bergdahl’s life from the Taliban. This week, the administration told senators that Bergdahl’s captors threatened to kill him if negotiations became public. (The administration says it feared someone in Congress would’ve leaked it.) Feinstein says the administration should have obeyed a law requiring 30 days’ notice to Congress before releasing prisoners from Gitmo.
