Rand Paul to File Class-Action Lawsuit Against Obama Admin

As seen on Hannity

In an exclusive Hannity interview, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) announced a class-action lawsuit against President Obama over the National Security Agency’s surveillance program.

The Republican senator told guest host Eric Bolling on Friday night, “The question here is whether or not, constitutionally, you can have a single warrant apply to millions of people. So we thought, what better way to illustrate the point than having hundreds of thousands of Americans sign up for a class-action suit.”

Paul believes that the government can protect against terrorism without Americans giving up their privacy. “We want them to protect the Fourth Amendment. We want them to protect the right to privacy. We want them to understand that we’re not willing to trade our liberty for security.”

Over the last six months, Paul has received about several hundred thousand signatures. He said anyone in America with a cell phone is eligible for this class-action suit.

Paul said the goal is to “overwhelm” the administration and to show publicly that they object to the government collecting phone records without permission.

The current attorney general of Virginia, Ken Cuccinelli, is part of the legal team. He was the first AG to file a lawsuit against ObamaCare. Paul hopes they’ll be able to get a hearing in court and ultimately, to the Supreme Court.
