A question for Senator Ron Wyden

Oregon Senator Ron Wyden (D) was an outspoken critic of secret CIA and NSA domestic spying programs. However, he is the leading Democratic proponent of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement. TPP is being negotiated behind closed doors by multi-national corporations, and leaked documents show that the details of TPP are to be kept secret for four years after TPP is implemented.

A simple question for Ron Wyden:

Why is government secrecy bad when it comes to domestic surveillance programs, but just fine when it comes to trade agreements?

Not a rhetorical question.
