Warrantless Wiretapping Before 9/11?

Tuesday, August 29, 2006

Here's a press release that should make you ask, "What the hell is going on over at the White House?!?"
Lawyers Will Subpoena Bush White House in Phone Company Spying Case
DETAILS: Two lawyers who brought the first lawsuit against the Bush Administration, Verizon and ATT for illegally examining the phone records of virtually every American citizen will announce today that they are serving subpoenas on the Bush White House and on Verizon.
"We are subpoenaing the White House because we have developed evidence that the Bush Administration began unlawful efforts to obtain Americans' private phone records prior to 9/11/01 and the White House must disclose documents relevant to that claim," said Afran. "We believe that Verizon had extensive involvement in illegally disclosing the records of millions of Americans." (Emphasis mine)
"We are going to determine with these subpoenas whether the Bush administration has unlawfully targeted journalists, peace activists, libertarians, members of congress or generated an 'enemies list' by creating the most massive domestic spying operation in America's history," said Mayer.
They had better hope this doesn't play out or there's going to be hell to pay from the American public.
