R.A.W.A. ALERT UPDATE
04th December, 2015 at 07:31:15
The title of this hearing says it all.
Further light has been thrown on the Restoration of America's Wire Act Congressional hearing scheduled for December 9 (see previous report), and the title given to the hearing by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman, Jason Chaffetz, is revealing.
Chaffetz, now notorious for stacking the deck against online gambling with his selection of biased witnesses, has titled the hearing "A Casino in Every Smartphone - Law Enforcement Implications."
Chaffetz's March 2015 hearing attempting to progress his RAWA bill in the House became an object of ridicule due to the clearly prejudiced and not entirely accurate nature of the evidence given by almost all of his carefully selected witnesses, and although his December 9 witness list is yet to be revealed, it seems likely that a similar dog and pony show can be anticipated.
