Remember When Rep. Nadler Supposedly Said the NSA Could Listen to Phone Calls Without a Warrant? Not.
A followup to our post from yesterday about CNET’s ridiculous over-heated claim that Rep. Jerrold Nadler said the NSA “admitted” that “the Justice Department has secretly interpreted federal surveillance law to permit thousands of low-ranking analysts to eavesdrop on phone calls” …
Uh, no. He didn’t.
Update Rep. Nadler in a statement to BuzzFeed says: “I am pleased that the administration has reiterated that, as I have always believed, the NSA cannot listen to the content of Americans’ phone calls without a specific warrant.”
