Big Brother reared it's ugly head with this government offical's quote:
"The Department of Justice believes -- and the case law supports -- that the president has inherent authority to conduct warrantless physical searches for foreign intelligence purposes and that the president may, as he has done, delegate this authority to the attorney general,"
Not just wiretaps, but actual physical searches, without a warrant, in clear violation of the 4th Admendment!
Jamie S. Gorelick should be called in front of Congress, placed under oath, and made to answer for such a statement!
Who is Jamie S. Gorelick you ask? He was a Deputy Attorney General under President William Jefferson Clinton.
He made that statement in 1994 in testimony before the democrat controlled House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
He was explaining why Bill Clinton has conducted such searches as well as wiretaps of exclusively domestic targets.
HT to Paul over at Wizbang!
