02/18/11 – Michelle Richardson – The Scott Horton Show

by | Feb 18, 2011 | Interviews

Michelle Richardson, Legislative Counsel for the ACLU’s Washington Legislative Office, discusses the status of various PATRIOT Act provisions due to expire; marginal but increasing Congressional opposition to the PATRIOT Act, much of it from GOP freshmen; why the worst civil liberties violating provisions – the “library act” and National Security Letters – should be ended immediately; evidence that the FBI is infiltrating and spying on domestic political activists in the guise of fighting terrorism; and why we should expect legislation requiring government-accessible “backdoors” in internet infrastructure.
