Rand Paul: NSA Phone Records Grab an 'Astounding Assault on the Constitution'

Says Obama Administration has "sunk to a new low"


Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Thursday responded to the revelation that the National Security Agency has been secretly obtaining phone records of Verizon customers by calling it 'an astounding assault on the Constitution."

"After revelations that the Internal Revenue Service targeted political dissidents and the Department of Justice seized reporters' phone records, it would appear that this Administration has now sunk to a new low," the libertarian-leaning Republican said.
