Washington, DC- In hopes it would go unnoticed over the weekend, the Obama Administration filed a motion to dismiss the FreedomWorks-Rand Paul lawsuit that would end the government’s warrantless NSA spying program on American citizens. The lead counsel on the case is former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
“Obama's motion to dismiss our lawsuit is an insulting display of political arrogance coming out of the executive branch,” commented Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks. “It should really be called a motion to censor civilians. It wasn't enough that the Obama Administration authorized the single largest warrantless gathering of citizen’s private information in the history of the United States. They don’t even believe citizens deserve an opportunity to plead their case after their rights have been violated. The Obama Administration can try to use legal muscle to silence Americans, but we will be heard.”
Senator Rand Paul added, "I remain fully committed to this lawsuit and look forward to having our day in court. The American people deserve better than warrantless surveillance and domestic spying."
FreedomWorks is calling on citizens who believe in the Bill of Rights to support the lawsuit by signing a petition, at www.ConstitutionDefenseFund.com.
