Congresswoman outraged over being wiretapped... but voted for the Patriot Act
Hey now there's a thought, how about the judge that issued a court order for Obama to appear in his court, issue and arrest warrant using the new patriot act?)
Just a thought but it would be funny, hey where did he go? anybody seen the President since he went for a piss??..Anyone??? :)
I laughed my ass off listening to this women trying to protect her actions LOL
I don't suppose you want to submit to a full body scan either do you lady??? LOL
What goes around comes around people, something to remember when you are changing the laws for your Rich friends!!
I'm 62 years old and after a while you get to be able to read people when they are...hmm I hate to use the word lying...lets just say.. not telling the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God.. and this lady falls into that category (in my humble opinion) but I'm betting if you asked Judge Judy she would agree!
Some things you just have to learn the hard way
Harman defended the Bush administration's use of international (cross-border) warrantless wiretapping through the National Security Agency, saying: "I believe the program is essential to U.S. national security and that its disclosure has damaged critical intelligence capabilities."
Harman suggested that both the "despicable" whistleblowers and the New York Times, which broke the story, should be investigated, and in the case of the NY Times, "limits on press immunity" should be looked into. Harman repeatedly pressured the Times not to publish the warrantless wiretap story. In October or November 2004, Harman called Phillip Taubman, Washington bureau chief of the Times, to discourage him from running the story. In December 2005, Harman was among a group of lawmakers who visited Taubman in an attempt to convince him not to run the story.
Following reports in April 2009 of her conversations being recorded without her knowledge, she appeared to take a different stance regarding wholly domestic wiretaps. In an interview with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC:
"That's what I've asked Attorney General Holder to do to release any tapes, I don't know whether they were legally made or not, of my conservations about this matter... and to hope that he will investigate whether other members of Congress or other innocent Americans might have been subject to this same kind of treatment. I call it an abuse of power in the letter I wrote him this morning... I'm just very disappointed that my country I'm an American citizen just like you are could have permitted what I think is a gross abuse of power in recent years. I'm one member of Congress who may be caught up in it, but I have a bully pulpit and I can fight back. I'm thinking about others who have no bully pulpit, and may not be aware, as I was not, that right now, somewhere, someone is listening in on their conversations, and they're innocent Americans."
