Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., announced in a Tuesday afternoon press release from his political action committee RAND PAC that he’s following through with a promised class-action lawsuit against the National Security Agency.
Paul will file the lawsuit alleging violations of Americans' Fourth Amendment rights in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning.
It’s unclear if Paul’s lawsuit will target the NSA’s dragnet collection of phone records, its powerful Internet programs, or both.
A senior Paul staffer working on the lawsuit told U.S. News in December Paul was considering challenging both the phone and Internet programs.
