Recently, Mitch McConnell introduced legislation that would extend some of the worst parts of the Patriot Act until the year 2020. The parts of the law being extended include the provisions that allow the government to intercept phone calls and other forms of digital communication from US Citizens on US soil.

Ring of Fire’s Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. recently spoke with author Robert Scheer about how the Patriot Act has been one of the worst pieces of legislation in terms of violating our Constitutional rights.

Robert Scheer is an editor at Truthdig and author of They Know Everything About You.
