Over the past ten years, FBI Director Robert Mueller has overseen extensive privacy violations and abuses of constitutional rights. Yet, even though the FBI has never addressed these ongoing and expanding problems, President Obama has asked Congress to extend the director’s term for the first time since the COINTELPRO era, when Director J. Edgar Hoover used the FBI’s power to spy on Martin Luther King Jr. and others whose politics he didn’t like.
And Congress seems ready to do as the president has asked. The Bill of Rights Defense Committee, along with a coalition of more than 30 allied organizations from across the political spectrum, is calling on members of Congress to vote against the extension of Mueller’s term and finally conduct long overdue oversight to restore constitutional rights.
