More on suveillance

This I really love. ABC News finally finds a "Constitutional scholar" who believes that the NSA's surveillance of international communications between al Qaeda agents overseas and people in the United States are illegal. The guy's name is David Cole. (Nope, I'd never heard of him either.) He's certainly no Lawrence Tribe or Cass Sunstein.

What's the problem with this? Nothing if you think it's OK to present his views merely as a scholar when he is also The Nation magazine's legal affairs correspondent.

Does anyone really believe that ABC News would've pulled a similar maneuver with Andrew McCarthy (not the actor) and not mention that he is a regular contributor to National Review?

If you disagree, we may feud over the issue.

Is it true that Adam Schiff used his official position as House Intelligence Chair to subpoena the phone records of a journalist?

Sen. Marsha Blackburn @MarshaBlackburn

Adam Schiff used his official position as House Intelligence Chair to subpoena the phone records of a journalist and the top Republican on his committee.

Then he released the records to intimidate his opponents.
