His efforts were bolstered two years ago with Edward Snowden’s revelations about the NSA’s domestic surveillance programs.
And because of your support, today those efforts paid off - and authority for the NSA's illegal spying program will expire tonight at midnight.
This is perhaps one of the greatest victories in my entire political career.
Tonight's victory, however short-lived it may ultimately be, gives me great hope about the future of liberty in this country.
If there's one thing the statists now know for sure - it's that our R3VOLUTION is alive and well - and stronger than ever.
But the surveillance statists are currently regrouping - and tomorrow they'll be back working to water-down the USA FREEDOM Act further to continue the NSA’s lawlessness.
It’ll be up to you and me to demand better than what we’re being asked to settle for.
Regardless of the outcome, the fact that you and I are here is something to be proud of.
My staff is scrambling tonight to better understand exactly what to expect tomorrow and the remainder of the week.
So please stay tuned for an important update tomorrow.
This fight is far from over. And I need you to keep your heels dug in and continue fighting.
