Action Alert: The House is scheduled to vote on the Amash Amendment to Defund the NSA Wednesday.
NSA’s Keith Alexander held a top secret briefing today to intimidate certain representatives into voting against THE AMASH amendment WHICH would curtail the UNCONSTITUTIONAL activities of the NSA, i.e., illegal surveillance of Americans. The meeting was by invitation only.
These behind closed doors sessions are usually designed to intimidate and strong-arm any wavering Members. As Rep. John Duncan (R-TN), a Ron Paul Institute Board Member, has recounted numerous times, administration and intelligence community officials use highly questionable tactics and bogus evidence at these secret briefings to browbeat Members into voting their way.
