Sen. Feingold "Absolutely Convinced" NSA Spying Program Is Illegal

Having had an initial briefing on the NSA's massive spying program, Sen. Russell Feingold today fired off a letter to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte demanding that they "provide additional information to all the members of the Judiciary Committee so that these Senators can adequately evaluate the legislative proposals regarding FISA and the government's domestic surveillance authorities that are on the Committee's agenda." He also stated, "Based on what information has been provided to me, I remain absolutely convinced that the program is illegal."

On Friday, June 23, EFF will argue before a federal district court in San Francisco that our case against AT&T for colloborating with the program should be allowed to proceed. Please consider donating to EFF and help stop the illegal spying.
