Imperial U.S. president

By fear, innuendo and misstatements the administration has tried to defend their clearly illegal wiretapping of U.S. citizens. They claim the warrant by a special judge that the law requires is either not needed or too time consuming. This despite the fact that the law allows them to proceed with wiretapping for up to three days before obtaining the warrant.

The administration may be more interested in a broader array of surveillance of American citizens than just possible terrorists and therefore are afraid to submit these requests to judges. I would not be surprised if organizations and individuals who disagree with this administrations policies were among the targets.

It is just one more example of the danger we are all facing from an imperial president who believes that only he has the right to determine the extent of our liberty.
