Sen. Rand Paul sues Pres. Obama over NSA phone call surveillance

Senator Rand Paul is upset at the NSA and filed a class-action lawsuit against the Obama administration

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has filed a lawsuit against Pres. Obama's administration and the National Security Agency (NSA), drawing headlines in his attempt to disrupt the NSA and its controversial data snooping efforts. The class-action lawsuit from the potential Republican president candidate is a curious move, as Paul is banking on U.S. citizen anger to gain headlines.




Besides Obama, NSA Director Keith Alexander, FBI Director James Comey and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper were also named in the lawsuit. The class action lawsuit could represent "hundreds of millions" of U.S. citizens, and has received 386,000 signatures on an online petition Paul shared on his website.


If this story isn't weird enough already, apparently Paul and Cuccinelli are under fire from constitutional lawyer Bruce Fein, as Fein wrote the lawsuit but his name was replaced by Cuccinelli. Not only was the lawsuit "stolen," but Fein also said he still hasn't received full compensation from Paul's political action committee, and clearly isn't pleased.
