Please call your representative right now and implore them to not pass the false-compromise FISA bill, H.R. 6304. The vote comes up this afternoon, so please hurry!
Passing H.R. 6304 would amount to a Congressional seal of approval on illegal surveillance. Even if the President and the telecoms knowingly and brazenly broke the law, the provision in the bill seeks to prevent the courts from holding them accountable. Yet, the suits against the telecoms may be our last hopes for a judicial ruling on whether the President can break the law with impunity.
