Among other crucial topics, Ted Cruz discussed the USA Freedom Act.  Here is the update on that issue:

 

Update on 5:22:15: Compromiser-in-Chief, Sen. Mitch McConnell, put off a vote on the USA Freedom Act until right before the Senate was to leave for the Memorial Day weekend. They voted 57 to 42 (60 needed) against Sen. Ted Cruz who supported the USA Freedom Act.  The House had previously passed the USA Freedom Act 303 to 121 (7 absent).

 

Section 215 of the Patriot Act is set to expire at midnight on May 31.  Without a replacement (e.g., the USA Freedom Act), the tools to locate terrorist activity through searches and phone records will be sorely curtailed.   

 

As explained by Ted Cruz on the Joe Pags Show, the USA Freedom Act would have ended the NSA’s bulk collection of call data while still preserving the important tools under the Patriot Act.

 

The USA Freedom Act would have allowed the government to get from phone companies a list of phone numbers that have been in touch with a terrorist phone number; and the Act would have forced the FBI to submit very detailed applications to the FISA Court before being given permission to conduct searches.
