Sen. Rand Paul on Tuesday introduced an amendment to the House-passed Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to protect Americans’ privacy, citing the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn as an example of “abuse” and saying it “should never be allowed to happen again.”
Paul, R-Ky., who is an outspoken advocate for privacy reforms, proposed an amendment to the USA FREEDOM Reauthorization Act of 2020 – which passed the House on a bipartisan basis earlier this year – to protect Americans' privacy, ensure due process and “reassert the Fourth Amendment.”

Lying to the FISA court is already illegal so what makes anyone think a new law is going to be followed....

And why is the court "illegal,?"

Good point.  A lot of what has been going on is illegal or unconstitutional or both.  Yet as usual, here we sit.  The DEMS continue to get away with it all.  No one has been indicted.  Many are calling for Barr to step down...the responsibility to start bringing some justice into this country lies on his shoulders.  He's either going to start acting or he'll step down; the heat (or someone) may get to him.  I hope not and I hope he has been provided a security team.
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.
