WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | CA-33) and Congressman Steve Russell (R | OK-5) sent a letter to Admiral Michael Rogers, Director of the NSA.  As veterans and members of Government Oversight & Reform’s National Security Subcommittee, Rep. Lieu and Rep. Russell are concerned about recent allegations that the NSA has potentially searched every email sent by Americans to an overseas address.  These allegations came to light late last week in a lawsuit filed by both progressive and conservative groups against the NSA in federal court.
