Ann Coulter said Thursday that she would have no issue with the National Security Agency's domestic surveillance program if it were done under another president besides Obama.
A bombshell story about the NSA's secret collection of the phone records of Verizon customers created a fresh wave of controversy for the White House on Thursday. Coulter told Sean Hannity on Friday that the surveillance would be acceptable "under an honorable administration, and even and honorable Democratic administration."
"The problem with this administration and with Eric Holder is that we can't trust them," she continued. "They don't care about terrorism. They wanna spy on their political enemies."
Coulter added that she was not against the White House ever using those powers, but said that the Obama administration was "unbelievably corrupt," and should be banned from looking at the records they have collected. "This is not an administration that takes terrorism seriously," she alleged. What they take seriously is harassing Americans, harassing political opponents."
