The NSA has faced its fair share of criticism, not the least of which being from major technology companies caught in the agency’s data collection web. But now, the NSA faces a new foe, potentially from a source it was not expecting — the U.S. Senate.
Senator Rand Paul (R.-Ky.) filed a lawsuit on Feb. 12 against President Obama and the heads of several national security agencies, claiming the NSA’s data collection is unconstitutional. Paul, along with fellow plaintiff conservative nonprofit FreedomWorks, filed the suit as a class action complaint in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
