SANBORN STATEMENT ON DAMAGING MEMO RELEASE
Memo shows exactly why we must elect principled conservatives who will oversee government actions

 

BEDFORD, NH- Congressional Candidate for New Hampshire’s 1st District and State Senator Andy Sanborn (R-Bedford) released the following statement after news of a memo which outlining how entrenched bureaucrats used the arm of the government to exact a political toll on candidate Trump:

“It is deeply disturbing we now know that Obama government bureaucrats manipulated the FISA court system to spy on candidate Trump’s campaign. This is exactly why we must be more aggressive in draining the swamp. While I have respect for government workers who show up and do their job on a daily basis, we have clearly reached a point in our country where a small minority of senior officials have become brazen enough to use unsubstantiated political documents funded by the Democrat Party as an excuse to authorize wiretaps on a political candidate’s campaign and an American citizen.

“Public servants should operate devoid of any partisanship. This sort of unethical behavior breeds distrust in our government and undermines our democracy to its core.

“Sadly, we see it time and time again when unscrupulous lifelong bureaucrats, like some politicians, become too comfortable in their position and reach a point where they feel emboldened to act out in dishonest manners. When elected to Congress, I will work tirelessly to end this sort of malevolent behavior and fight to restore faith back in our government.”

SANBORN STANDS AGAINST FISA REATHORIZATION
Will prioritize privacy and restraint while balancing safety

BEDFORD, NH – Following the news that Congress passed the re-authorization of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), State Senator Andy Sanborn issued the following statement outlining his position on the subject:

“As a Congressman, I will always put out nation’s safety at the top of my priority list but that does not mean we should be trading our much-guarded liberties that are enshrined in the Constitution. While I believe that FISA is well intentioned, it is deeply flawed and does not offer much in the way of oversight and due process for American Citizens that might be inadvertently surveilled upon. It is because of this that I would have opposed the re-authorization today, in its current form. The Federal Government and Congress need to ensure real safeguards are in place that protect American Citizen’s Fourth Amendment rights and I am wary of creating any government apparatus that is collecting and processing terabytes of data on daily basis with very little oversight.”
