Tell Sen. Feinstein Not to Whitewash Domestic Spying

To Our Friends in California,

This week the Senate Judiciary Committee is considering two bills that
would reward President Bush’s illegal actions by allowing the National
Security Agency (NSA) to continue spying on Americans in violation of
our laws. These bills are being pushed through even though Congress has
failed to learn key facts about the program.

Senator Feinstein sits on this committee and can stop both of these
bills dead in their tracks.

We need you to call Senator Feinstein right now.

In San Francisco: (415) 393-0707
In Fresno: (559) 485-7430
In Washington, DC: (202) 224-3841

• Tell her to oppose both Senate Bill 2453 and Senate Bill 2455.
Congress needs to get the facts about the NSA spying program before
making it legal.

• Both bills would have the effect of whitewashing the illegal NSA domestic spying program. Conservatives and progressives agree that this
program should not be made legal.

• Congress has a duty to get the facts, not help the Bush administration cover them up. The Senate Judiciary Committee must uphold its responsibility to the Constitution and the American people by opposing these misguided bills.

• Tell Senator Feinstein to get the facts about the warrantless NSA domestic spying before making it legal.

Calls are needed to several members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Please take a moment and forward this email to your friends and family who live in California, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Delaware, South Carolina, Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois. They can look up their member’s phone number here.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS:
S. 2453, a bill written by Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA), would supposedly restore judicial review of wiretaps, but the law already requires judicial review and the president has ignored it. Senator Specter’s bill would allow the courts to approve programs of surveillance, diminishing the Constitution’s requirement there be probable cause that an American is doing something wrong before their communications can be seized.

S. 2455, a bill written by Senator Mike DeWine (R-PA), would also attempt to rewrite probable cause to allow warrantless surveillance of Americans’ calls and emails without evidence that they are conspiring with suspect terrorists. It would make judicial review of wiretaps optional and would reduce the amount of information the president is required to give Congress about the program.

Sincerely,

Caroline Fredrickson
