Rand Paul questions use of FISA against Americans

 

There is no doubt that there was abuse of FISA and that members of the FBI and the Mueller's team demonstrated bias before and after the election of Donald Trump.  Senator Paul tries to reason with Director Raye about the guarantees in the Constution to protect American Citizens and that use of FISA to surveil the communications of a presidential campaigh and an incoming administration is totally inappropriate.  In additon to other issues, he points out that the candidate and the campaign would, of course, have reason to contact other governments during the lawful pursuance of their goals.  Raye's answers demonstrate his lack of willingness to even imagine limitations on the FBI, CIA and the FISA Court are necessary.  What a shame!
