Griffith Statement Following Defeat of Amash-Conyers Amendment

From Morgan Griffith:

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 – Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) released the following statement after the defeat of the Amash-Conyers amendment:

“While the Amash-Conyers amendment that would rein in the NSA’s data gathering capabilities on U.S. citizens who aren’t suspects failed, I am proud to be a part of a bipartisan group of Congressmen and women who believe our first duty is to protect and uphold the freedoms recognized by the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights.  While we fell a few votes short this evening, we will continue our efforts on behalf of freedom loving Americans.  I encourage each and every one of you to stay involved in this process.”
