Breaking the laws in order to enforce them is wrong.

Ends don't justify means.

But, did they break the law?

18 U.S.C. 2511(2)(a)(ii)(B) was the law of the land. And, it was the basis for so-called "immunity" which covered actions between 9/11 and when FISA was amended by the Patriot Act to better accommodate the President's claimed needs.

Basically, we were in a period where, legally, all the President had to do is say "no warrant is necessary." No proof to anyone that that was true.

And if what you say is correct, then why is there so much coverage on this? And why is the president and past president pus/pushing for telco immunity? Somewhere they screwed up and obviously that law you keep quoting don't justify their actions as you say.
