Corrupt: Last Chance to Stop Illegal Spying on Americans

Craig Huey Politics 1 Comment

The FBI and other intelligence agencies have abused and politicized their power.

It’s corrupt … It’s unconstitutional …

The law they’ve used is called the FISA law.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act allows U.S. intelligence agencies to intercept phone calls, collect internet search data and gather other intelligence information on foreigners …. basically, to conduct spy operations on foreigners.

The outrage is this: in the process of collecting intelligence information on foreigners, information is also gathered on the activities of U.S. citizens.

There is nothing in the FISA law that prevents the government from sorting through their database of intelligence information and charging Americans with domestic crimes – a violation of the 4th Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

This is how the Obama administration was able to obtain warrants from the FISA Court to conduct specific spy operations against political opponents – a clear violation of the U.S. Constitution.

There’s another problem with the current attempt to reauthorize the spy provisions of Section 702 which are set to expire on December 31st

This is a clear attempt to ram the spy provisions through Congress without allowing any debate or amendments that would add Constitutional protections to the collection and use of information on Americans.

Rand Paul brilliantly articulates the reasons why the spy reauthorization should be stripped out of the spending bill and debated on the floor of the House…

  1. When we will ever learn to never expect a politician to do the right thing. POTUS problem began with the abuse of the FISA court yet the GOP is still supporting a surveillance program for the American people. Oh yes, you can trust the government to do the right thing. They would never abuse a written law. Right? Wrong!
