WASHINGTON, D.C. – This evening, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) urged the Senate to support constitutional protections for all Americans by rejecting cloture on the FISA Amendments Reauthorization bill. 

“I rise in opposition to the government listening to your phone calls, reading your emails, or reading your text messages without a warrant. It doesn’t mean the government will never do this, but it means they would have to ask a judge. They would have to ask a judge if they have probable cause that you have committed a crime. They would have to name you. They would have to name the information they want. It’s called the Fourth Amendment,” said Dr. Paul.
