Sen. Paul to sue government over NSA policies



WASHINGTON — Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., says he is filing suit against the Obama administration over the data-collection policies of the National Security Agency.
On his website, he’s urging Americans to join the lawsuit, in his words, “to stop Barack Obama’s NSA from snooping on the American people.”
In an interview Friday night on the Fox News show “Hannity,” the Kentucky Republican told host Eric Bolling he believes everyone in the U.S. with a cellphone would be eligible to join the suit as a class action.
Paul says that people who want to join the suit are telling the government that it can’t have access to emails and phone records without permission or without a specific warrant.
Paul says the lead lawyer in the suit is Virginia’s former attorney general, Ken Cuccinelli.
