DEMAND THE TRUTH

I'm demanding that the administration tell the people the truth about illegal government spying on Americans.

The president and others have aggressively defended their spying programs, but they've refused to provide the facts.

The administration owes the people, the Congress and our courts answers to the mounting questions surrounding this program. Were federal laws violated? Were oaths of office broken?

But instead of investigating this illegal activity, key Senate Republicans have met with Vice President Dick Cheney and agreed to create legislation that would rewrite our laws to require less disclosure and less judicial oversight for wiretaps than current law demands. It is an outrage that Congress, which is supposed to check executive power, is preparing to ratify this illegal surveillance program after the fact.

The administration must stop using national security as a blanket reason to keep its illegal activities hidden in the shadows. Effective and public oversight is possible without compromising our security and only a legitimate investigation in Congress can bring the truth to light.

Like concerned Americans across the political spectrum, I want the truth about illegal government spying on Americans.

The people are demanding answers. Because in America, no one is above the law, not even the president.
