NEW: The PATRIOT Act’s most notorious provisions, affecting the privacy of millions of Americans, are expiring. House Republicans are furious over FBI surveillance on Trump’s campaign. And these are two ships passing in the night.
I voted against the Patriot Act in 2001, 2006, 2011 and 2015. I strongly oppose its reauthorization next month. I believe that in a democratic and constitutional form of government, we cannot sacrifice the civil liberties that make us a free country.
