Feingold Questions Department of Justice Officials on PATRIOT Act
Senator Feingold questions Assistant Attorney General David Kris and Inspector General Glenn Fine at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on reauthorizing the USA PATRIOT Act on September 23, 2009.
Former Dept of Justice official under the division of the Drug Enforcement Agency head official, Karen Tandy, the same person who decided to spend our tax dollars on going after Tommy Chong for his family's bong business as well as "The Prince of Pot" Marc Scott Emery decided to step down from her position from the DEA for a head position in the Motorola cellular phone company. Does something sound suspicious here? I think so! ^ KAREN TANDY
Especially after this video was released of Senator Feingold questioning Assistant Attorney General David Kris and Inspector General Glenn Fine at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on reauthorizing the USA PATRIOT Act on September 23, 2009. What they found out was that the unpopular Patriot Act created by the Bush Administration was being utilized to wiretap individuals for a majority of crimes not related to terrorism. Only on 3 occasion where secret sneak and peak operations where used for terrorist related crimes while the other over 700 cases did not involve terrorist activity. Senator Feingold mentioned that of these sneak and peek searches a majority was used for drug crime not related to terrorist activity. He mentined that in these sneek and peek operations home owners where not notified of them until months later and acknowleged that the notifications where supposed to be sent out within 7 days for criminal drug cases that where non related to terrorist activity. As a result Feingold suggested making safeguards that would protect the American people from the abuse of power that was implemented in the Patriot Act.
