A US District Court judge ruled that the National Security Agency's spy program is likely unconstitutional and that the plaintiffs have standing to challenge the NSA on Monday. In his ruling, Judge Richard Leon said the NSA's bulk data collection program used to spy on Americans' phone calls is a violation of the Fourth Amendment's prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures. He went on to say that the Department of Justice failed to demonstrate how collecting this metadata actually helps thwart terrorist plots. RT's Meghan Lopez talks to Josh Gerstein, Politico's senior White House reporter, about the court ruling and how it might affect the NSA.
