Press Release: On February 12, Sen. Rand Paul and Matt Kibbe, the President of FreedomWorks, announced a class-action lawsuit against President Barack Obama, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Director of National Security Agency Keith Alexander and FBI Director, James Comey.
Sen. Paul expects the case to go all the way to the Supreme Court, and predicts the American people will win. Kibbe adds, “If you use a phone, you should care about this case. Never in American history has there been such a warrantless gathering of citizens information. We believe it is time to put this before the courts.”
Arterburn, a combat veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq, supports the suit whole-heartedly and says the Patriot Act was the worst attack on the privacy of American citizens – until Obamacare. “This administration has proven by word and deed that they consider their fellow Americans a bigger threat than worldwide jihad. Securing our borders and restoring a strong international presence should be the focus, not spying on American citizens.”
“I am proud to have my name on this suit and stand with Senator Paul,” Arterburn said.
