His statements leave a lot of doubt. The 4th Amendment protects us from
governmental spying. Things that are not in plain sight require a warrant
signed by a judge based on probable cause that a crime has already been
committed. The head of the FBI cannot be confirmed unless he is
willing to swear an oath: "The Senators and Representatives before
mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive
and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States,
shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no
religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public
Trust under the United States."It seems to me that this person
is not qualified to serve as the head of the FBI until he tells us that NO
spying of ANY kind will ever occur without a warrant based on criminal activity
that has already occurred.
Comey appears to be a good nomination from an administration which leaves a lot
to be desired.
