Press Release

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) today released the following statement in response to the findings of the President’s Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technology:

“The findings of the President’s Review Group are consistent with my call for the need to protect the personal privacy of innocent Americans, who have been unnecessarily targeted by the overreach of the National Security Agency,” said Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who is a co-sponsor of the USA FREEDOM Act.

“This report acknowledges that surveillance reform is critical and urgent, and also builds on a U.S. district court ruling earlier this week that indicated that bulk collection of phone records is likely unconstitutional. The NSA’s blatant violation of personal privacy and freedoms are extremely disturbing, and it is crucial that Congress take action on legislation like the USA FREEDOM Act to put an end to this abuse of the constitutional rights of the American people.”
