The Senate held three votes on telecom immunity amendments this afternoon and a final vote on the FISA reform bill will take place later today. After all is said and done, the 9/10 Democrats will go along with the White House in protecting telecom companies from civil lawsuits related to their anti-terrorism cooperation with the feds–and FISA reform will at last be passed. Here are the roll call votes. Here’s wire coverage of the action on the Senate floor and a rundown from First Read on Barack Obama’s flip-flop. The heartbroken nutroots are foaming at the mouth.

Hoist, meet petard.

The “moneybomb” goes off on August 8.

Update 3:07pm Eastern. FISA reform passes, 69-28. Obama votes yes. Hillary votes no.
