Senators and Staffers Are Upset Because THEY Also Use Verizon and AT&T And Worry About THEIR Violation of Privacy

"A senior hill staffer on the House side told Breitbart News on Sunday, “I have grave concerns over the privacy of communications between staff and their member of Congress. All of our communications go through Verizon or ATT to reach our Blackberries." The staffer added, "Through a blanket seizing of these communications, the NSA is permanently intercepting and storing privileged material. This rasies further constitutional issues regarding separation of powers."
A senior Senate staffer agreed telling Breitbart News, "Senators and staff all use Verizon phones. So the executive branch is monitoring the meta data of the Senate. This seems like a violation of the Speech and Debate Clause of the Constitution." "
Welcome to our world, legistlators.
Now that it hits you personally (where was your outrage when those for whom you work---American citizens?) will you dare to do anything? Or just sit there and whine and fiddle your thumbs as more of our freedoms are striped away?
People need to understand that its bad for everyone when the government violates the Constitution, regardless of who you vote for, regardless if you are a liberal or conservative. What they will do with one group, you better believe they'll do to the other.
