No Telecom Immunity

Todd Beeton, If you saw Countdown last night, you saw Mark Klein, a former AT&T technician who is testifying today in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee that
AT&T had technology which helped the Bush administration spy on mails.

And not just e-mails abroad or from suspected terrorists... everything. On a practical level, granting these firms immunity will halt the lawsuits that are currently filed to demand to know exactly what these telecoms have done and whose communications and information has been compromised. That's unacceptable.

Matt at the Chris Dodd campaign interviewed Klein yesterday, check out what he has to say for yourself.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin the mark-up of the FISA bill this morning and it's not too late to make your voice heard. Head over to Chris Dodd's Citizen Whip Count and call the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to let them know that telecom amnesty is unacceptable.

So far, Feingold, Biden, Cardin and Kennedy are confirmed No votes. We need 6 more. Why is this even a close call for any Democratic senators? Urge them to stand up to Bush for once and say no to telecom immunity.
