Exclusive: Senator Chris Dodd Will Put A Hold On Telecom Immunity Bill

Wow - from out of nowhere, Dodd brings additional hope.

The Military Commissions Act.  Warrantless wiretapping.  Shredding of Habeas Corpus.  Torture.  Extraordinary Rendition.  Secret Prisons. 

No more.
I have decided to place a "hold" on the latest FISA bill that would have included amnesty for telecommunications companies that enabled the President's assault on the Constitution by illegally providing personal information on their customers without judicial authorization. 

I said that I would do everything I could to stop this bill from passing, and I have.  
It's about delivering results -- and as I've said before, the FIRST thing I will do after being sworn into office is restore the Constitution.  But we shouldn't have to wait until then to prevent the further erosion of our country's most treasured document.  That's why I am stopping this bill today.
