Byrd Gives Up Gavel, Sparking Panel Moves

Feinstein addressed speculation that the committee shuffle would put her in a position to chair Intelligence in a statement Friday: “If Senator Byrd’s resignation means that I will chair the Intelligence Committee, I would welcome the responsibility, and I am prepared to address the great challenges facing our nation. I believe that strong oversight of the intelligence community is critical to ensuring our national security, and to restoring America’s reputation in the world.”

The Rules gavel would then likely fall to Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.).
