Senator Paul Sees NSA Overreach in Spying on Leaders

Senator Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, said the National Security Agency has overreached by listening to the phone conversations of foreign leaders such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and it’s conceivable, though unlikely, the agency is tapping President Barack Obama’s phone.

“I say that a bit facetiously, but at the same time, the warrants that are coming out of the FISA court are so expansive and without limit and non-specific that they apply to all cellphones,” Paul said today, referring to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
