Although the presidential candidate voted Yes in a procedural step to allow discussion on the bill, which would reform the Patriot Act’s now-expired Section 215, Sanders told Seth Meyers that it didn’t go far enough for him. There are better ways, he said, to fight terrorism while protecting citizens’ constitutional rights.
“We can’t go around telling people we’re a free country when either the government or the corporate world knows every damn thing about you—that’s not really freedom,” Sanders said.
The conversation with Meyers also touched on his folk album and a controversial rape-fantasy essay he wrote that recently resurfaced.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told reporters Monday that the Senate will vote on the bill again as soon as possible, with Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) hoping the bill passes by 3pm Tuesday.
