Although Christopher Dodd and Russ Feingold introduced an amendment to strip immunity from the telecom companies, the Senate caved and approved the FISA Act with retroactive immunity. Obama voted for the amendment but it failed by a margin of 32 to 66 and ultimately voted for the Act “as is.”
This is a sad day for America. Those who are sworn to uphold the Constitution, and supposedly represent us just voted in favor of letting those who knowingly break the Fourth Amendment do so with impunity. Congratulations, the Constitution is now not worth the paper it’s printed on.
