Chairman and Vice Chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) (L) and U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) (R), speak to members of the media about the National Security Agency (NSA) collevting phone records June 6, 2013 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. According to reports, the NSA has collected phone data, under a provision of the Patriot Act, of Verizon customers in teh U.S.

New job numbers show the economy is holding its own, but just barely. The Senate is set to debate an immigration reform bill next week, but Republicans in the House are pushing back against some key provisions.

As we've been reporting this morning, the troubled San Onofre nuclear plant is closing, but perhaps the biggest story this week — if not the month — is the revelation that the National Security Agency has been perusing millions of Americans' phone records. 

We'll look into all this and more in today's Friday Flashback, featuring Matthew Cooper, national correspondent for the National Journal and James Rainey, political columnist for the LA Times.
