Reporter: Senate Democrats Find Obama Admin's Data Grabs Extremist

Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian talks with CNN's Jake Tapper about Democratic senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall, who objected to the Obama Administration over its interpretation of the PATRIOT Act, leading to indiscriminate collection of Americans' phone records.

"These are Democratic Party senators, who are loyal to President Obama and their party," Greenwald says. "[They] have spent years now, saying, ‘Please listen to us.' What the Obama administration is doing in interpreting the Patriot Act is so warped and distorted and it vests themselves with such extremist surveillance powers over the United States and American citizens that Americans, in their words, would be 'stunned' to learn what the Obama administration was doing."
