Skip to comments.Warren joins outcry for NSA accountability
Posted on 07/07/2013 12:32:46 PM PDT by Libloather
WASHINGTON The escalating spying affair dogging the Obama administration now includes a bipartisan request for accountability from more than a fourth of U.S. senators, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
They said it is regrettable the information was revealed by a government whistleblower instead of the Obama administration.
In a letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, the senators say it is time for the White House to come clean. They want him to provide straight answers to fundamental questions about the gigantic, clandestine and problematic government data collections that include huge stockpiles of information on ordinary Americans telephone use.
The senators say the federal government does not have authority to collect the telephone records, that the practice has wrongly turned Americans cell phones into tracking devices, and that the Obama administration misstated the legality of the cell phone tracking.

Misstated my ass. They are DELIBERATELY spying on U.S. citizens.
They should have their G-damn heads cut off right after we get to tar and feather them in a public square. Effing traitors!
I’ve seen this video on Maxine Waters before. Does Obama think the information collected by the nsa belongs to him for political use?
This, from the woman who birthed (don’t think about it) the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau, the NSA of finance.
ATTENTION GOPer’s in Massachusetts:
Do NOT let Warren get away with this. She set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. According to a recent article at breitbart.com, this Bureau datamines personal financial data.
Judicial Watch: Obama Admin Collecting Financial Data From Private Citizens Without Warrants
by Debra Heine 27 Jun 201
Well, we almost made it through a whole week without a new Obama Regime scandal, but the good folks at Judicial Watch never rest, and they announced today that they’ve obtained records from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) exposing that millions of dollars have been spent by the agency on the warrantless collection and analysis of Americans financial transactions
The full extent of the CFPB personal financial data collection program is revealed in a document obtained by Judicial Watch entitled INDEFINITE-DELIVERY INDEFINITY-QUANTITY (IDIQ) STATEMENT OF WORK. According to the IDIQ documents stated Objective: The CFPB seeks to acquire and maintain a nationally representative panel of credit information on consumers for use in a wide range of policy research projects The panel shall be a random sample of consumer credit files obtains from a national database of credit files.
To accomplish this objective, the CFPB describes the scope of the program accordingly:
The panel shall include 5 million consumers, and joint borrowers, co-signers, and authorized users [emphasis added]. The initial panel shall contain 10 years of historical data on a quarterly basis [emphasis added]. The initial sample shall be drawn from current records and historical data appended for that sample as well as additional samples during the intervening years [emphasis added] to make the combines sample representative at each point in time.
The CFPB data collection program has been highly controversial since the April 2013 hearing, when Cordray disclosed elements of the venture at a Senate Banking Committee hearing. At the time, the US Chamber of Commerce accused the CFPB of breaking the law by demanding the account-level data without a warrant or National Security Letter.
Man....that IRS thing must really be bubbling up under the radar. Dems are bailing on Obummer big time!!!!
This usoneof those issues where the far left, true liberals can line up with the principled right on an issue. It is rare but can happen.
The frothing moonbats, of course, say nothing.
It’s a little scary when I agree with Warren on something.
Five million is a large ‘panel’.
Shut up Liz.
you didn’t build it.
You have no right to expect an explanation
Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice...
Finally we have some major issues that the Oligarchy cannot split and conquer their opposition into left and right wing camps.
