Paul Ryan may be openly disgusted with Donald Trump, but he does seem willing to do his bidding: This morning, the Republican House leader sent a letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper asking for Hillary Clinton to be banned from receiving classified information during her presidential campaign.
The National Security Agency’s widespread collection of telephone records is illegal and not authorized by Congress, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday in ACLU v. Clapper. A New York District court had previously refused to even review the bulk collection program, saying it was “for the other two coordinate branches of government to decide.”
President Obama's Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, was called to testify before the Senate Armed Services Committee today, and stupidly tried to give an honest assessment of difficult foreign policy situations in response to questions asking for that. Now he's in big trouble, or at least Lindsey Graham wants him to resign.
