Emergency hearing to stop NSA spying on Trump
Big Brother is Recording You 24-7
Maybe Trump will come around now that
he is the target of NSA spying
(World Net Daily) - Attorney Larry Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch, is asking a federal court to hold an emergency hearing on the National Security Agency, alleging “likely” CIA “spying” on President Donald Trump.
In an emergency supplement filed Wednesday with the U.S. District Court in Washington, he said the NSA and “likely the Central Intelligence Agency are continuing to violate the [Fourth] Amendment to the Constitution and related statutes.”
Klayman charged the agencies spied on President Trump, the White House, his former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn and others in his administration.
He is requesting an emergency status conference to determine how to proceed.
Klayman’s newest filing was an addition to his argument to the court that his original cases should not be dismissed, as the government wants.
His issue was the government’s program to obtain and keep metadata from all cell phone calls in the country. He brought the first case several years ago.
“While the media is focused on the so-called Russian election hacking ‘scandal,’ it ignores the fact that our own government has committed the biggest violation of constitutional rights in American history, leaving the intelligence agencies free to continue their pattern and practice of violating the law in its intelligence gathering operations,” Klayman argued against a dismissal.
“As plaintiff Klayman argued in this court on Nov. 18, 2013, ‘We have never seen in the history of this country this kind of violation of the privacy rights of the American citizens. We live in an Orwellian state.'”
His argument continued, “This court concurred, finding ‘the almost-Orwellian technology that enables the government to store and analyze the phone metadata of every telephone user in the United States is unlike anything that could have been conceived in 1979.”
