Representative Jim Sensenbrenner, who introduced the PATRIOT Act on the House floor in 2001, has declared that lawmakersâ€™ and the executive branchâ€™s excuses about recent revelations of NSA activity are â€œa bunch of bunk.â€
In an interview on Laura Ingrahamâ€™s radio show Wednesday morning, the Republican congressman from Wisconsin reiterated his concerns that the administration and the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court have gone far beyond what the PATRIOT Act intended. Specifically, he said that Section 215 of the act â€œwas originally drafted to prevent data miningâ€ on the scale thatâ€™s occurred.
Sensenbrenner, the current chairman on the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations, suggested that the secret nature of the FISA court has prevented appropriate congressional oversight over the NSAâ€™s activities.
