Rand Paul will challenge NSA up to Supreme Court, calls on public to join

[poll id=”62″]In an appearance today on “Fox News Sunday,” U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he will challenge the NSA’s surveillance programs in the court of law.

“I’m going to be seeing if I can challenge this at the Supreme Court level,” Paul said.

And he is calling on his fellow Americans to join his effort as part of a class action lawsuit.

Paul told host Chris Wallace: “I’m going to be asking all the internet providers and all of the phone companies: ask your customers to join me in a class action lawsuit.”

“If we get 10 million Americans saying we don’t want our phone records looked at, maybe someone will wake up and something will change in Washington.”

Falling back on the Fourth Amendment, which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, Paul added: “I have no problem if you have probable cause, you target people who are terrorists, and you go after them. But we’re talking about trolling through billions of phone records…That is unconstitutional.”
