Congress Disowns Obama Administration Claims They Have Been In League With Secret NSA Spying

Barack Obama

When news of the National Security Agency's secret spy program PRISM broke, revealing the NSA has been engaging in wholesale illegal surveillance of Americans, in violation of the Constitution, just as the Judiciary Report has stated for several years, U.S. President Barack Obama publicly stated in a speech, Congress knew of and supports the initiative.

Shortly after, members of Congress denounced the claim, stating they were not in league with the illegal spy program. Congress also does not support former NSA contractor of four-years, Edward Snowden, 29, disclosing the illegal spying to the press, but the legislature is also refusing to back Obama on this issue as well.

How can there be legal protection for high ranking members of government criminally violating the constitution. If one is to follow the spirit of the law, what Snowden did is not unlawful, as he exposed illegality via criminal behavior from the NSA is breaking the constitution.

People are calling for the resignation of the head of the NSA, James Clapper, stating his conduct is unlawful via spying on Americans and previously lying to Congress. Clapper, much like Robert S. Mueller of the FBI and Attorney General Eric Holder of the Justice Department, likes to mislead the public in branding whistle blowers conspiracy theorists, knowing full well, all along the administration has been doing exactly what it's been accused of in breaking the law.  

What Snowden did is brave and commendable. It took great personal sacrifice as well, due to the fact he knew he could face serious legal action from the U.S. government and the possibility of never returning to his homeland again. Snowden stated, "My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them." The Judiciary Report wishes him well, safe travels and a peaceful new life wherever he chooses.
