ATTORNEY GENERAL/CABINET/TRUMP PEOPLE/JEFF SESSIONS: “Mr. Sessions strongly supports the USA Patriot Act, which he said provided necessary, common-sense powers for fighting terrorism. He defended President George W. Bush’s warrantless wiretapping and opposed changing surveillance laws after Edward J. Snowden’s revelations. [In his Senate Speech on 12-15-05, Senator Sessions said] ‘The provisions in the Patriot Act are in no way extreme, in no way novel, in no way contradictory to the principles of the constitutional law this country has operated under since its founding.’
