Sen. Rand Paul says he's filing lawsuit over NSA policies on email and phone records

WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. Rand Paul says he is filing suit against the Obama administration over the data-collection policies of the National Security Agency. And on his website, he’s urging Americans to join the lawsuit, in his words, “to stop Barack Obama’s NSA from snooping on the American people.”

In an interview airing Friday night on Fox News, the Kentucky Republican tells host Sean Hannity that he believes everyone in the U.S. with a cellphone would be eligible to join the suit as a class action.

Paul says that people who want to join the suit are telling the government that it can’t have access to emails and phone records without permission or without a specific warrant.

Paul says the lead lawyer in the suit is Virginia’s former attorney general, Ken Cuccinelli.
