McConnell Introduces Bill to Reauthorize Patriot Act Until 2020

Name that traitor! This is nothing short of infuriating to me. Watch them pass this crap, just watch!

The move may thwart any attempt to reform the NSA’s mass-surveillance authorities.

April 21, 2015 Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell introduced a bill Tuesday night that would reauthorize a controversial surveillance authority of the Patriot Act until 2020, a push that comes just as a group of bipartisan lawmakers is preparing a last-minute push to rein in the government's mass-spying powers.

A McConnell aide said the majority leader is beginning a process to put the bill on the Senate calendar but added that the chamber will not take the measure up this week. That process, known as Rule 14, would bypass traditional committee appraisal and "fast-track" the legislation for a full chamber vote. Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr is a cosponsor.

Under the bill, Section 215 of the post-9/11 Patriot Act would be extended until December 31, 2020. The core provision—which the National Security Agency uses to justify its bulk collection of U.S. phone records—is currently due to expire on June 1.
