Clinton Didn't Use Warrantless Wiretaps
Bill Clinton did not order wiretaps without a warrant as George Bush has:
Former President Clinton said Thursday that he never ordered wiretaps of American citizens without obtaining a court order, as President Bush has acknowledged he has done.
Clinton, in an interview broadcast Thursday on the ABC News program ‘’Nightline,'’ said his administration either received court approval before authorizing a wiretap or went to court within three days after to get permission, as required by law.
‘’We either went there and asked for the approval or, if there was an emergency and we had to do it beforehand, then we filed within three days afterward and gave them a chance to second guess it,'’ Clinton told ABC.
