Congressman Farenthold Presses DOJ Officials on NSA Phone Spying in House Judiciary Hearing
July 17, 2013
In a House Judiciary Committee hearing today Congressman Farenthold pressed on Department of Justice and NSA officials about their collection of personal records and information under FISA court rulings. "How is having every phone call that I make to my wife, to my daughter relevant to any terror investigation," Congressman Farenthold questioned.
"I just want to point out how concerned I am about this data being so easily available and just with the stroke of a pen Congress and the president could change the search criteria and change the definition of a terrorist," concluded the Congressman.
