Attorney Larry Klayman has filed the first lawsuits in the NSA spying case and they are receiving a lot of attention.
In this exclusive interview, Klayman tells WND how the lawsuits could affect every American.
Klayman is a WND columnist, the founder of both Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, a prosecutor in the Reagan administration Justice Department and a member of the trial team that broke up the AT&T monopoly.
He is suing President Obama, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, the director of the NSA, the NSA, the CEO of Verizon, the U.S. Department of Justice and Judge Roger Vinson of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court.
Klayman alleges the NSA’s massive telephone surveillance program violates the “reasonable expectation of privacy, free speech and association, right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures and due process rights.”
The suits are class-actions on behalf of everyone in the country but also on behalf of Charles Strange, the father of a Navy SEAL who tragically died on August 6, 2011, in an attack in Afghanistan.
In this exclusive interview, Klayman and Strange tell WND in detail what led them to file suit.
Klayman told WND he believed the outrage over the NSA spying scandal could help unite the country. WND asked him how the left and right could come together.
As WND reported, Strange and other parents of the SEALS who were killed believe their sons were targeted for retaliation and ambushed by the Taliban after Vice President Joe Biden revealed, and the administration then confirmed, that it was a SEAL Team VI unit that had killed Osama bin Laden just three months earlier.
Strange says his phone has been tapped ever since he began criticizing the administration.
WND mentioned the president assured us no one from the government is listening to the content of our phone calls unless a court has given permission.
However, WND reported a Democratic congressman who came out of a closed briefing last week said that’s not true, any number of analysts at the NSA can obtain the content from any phone call or email if they choose to do so, without a court authorization.
WND asked Klayman if he believes that has happened in this case.
Strange told WND he strongly believes there is a cover up of his son’s death that goes all the way to the top.
