The leaders of the House Intelligence Committee held a press conference on April 4 to announce their bipartisan legislation aimed at maintaining and refining the federal government’s telephone metadata collection program.
Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), the chair of the committee who announced recently that he will not seek re-election to an eighth term, and Rep. C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger (D-MD), the ranking Democrat on the panel, said the existing program had “saved lives” and was “legal,” in their view.
