Statement of U.S. Senator Russ Feingold
On the District Court’s Rebuke of the Administration’s Warrantless Wiretapping Program
August 17, 2006
August 17, 2006“Today’s district court ruling is a strong rebuke of this administration’s illegal wiretapping program. The President must return to the Constitution and follow the statutes passed by Congress. We all want our government to monitor suspected terrorists, but there is no reason for it to break the law to do so. The administration went too far with the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping program. Today’s federal court decision is an important step toward checking the President’s power grab.”
He has hit the nail on the head. This isn’t about spying or taping or terrorism. It is about a Power Grab!! It about expanding executive power!
