DOMESTIC SPYING JUSTIFICATION FROM SANTORUM

Penna. Republican Senator Rick Santorum, in a letter to constituents, points out two justifications under FISA. First, “the President…may authorize electronic surveillance to obtain foreign intelligence for up to one year without a court order if certain criteria are met and certified in writing under oath.” Second, “Section 109 of FISA authorizes bypassing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court if ‘authorized by statute.'”

If FISA says either of those things, it’s unconstitutional, because no congressional law may override the 4th Amendment.
