As a former constitutional law professor who campaigned against warrantless surveillance of Americans when he ran for office in 2008, it should be a no-brainer for President Obama to put an end to the unconstitutional dragnet that captures data about the phone calls of virtually all Americans.

CREDO Mobile, a telecom based in San Francisco, released the following statement reacting to the news:

“Whether the president moves his telephone data dragnet to AT&T and Verizon, to some other third party, or keeps it at the NSA makes no difference,” said Michael Kieschnick, CEO of CREDO Mobile. “It’s still clearly unconstitutional and must be dismantled.”

Last week, CREDO Mobile became the first telecom to issue a transparency report, detailing the number of governmental requests it received to turn over customer’s data. Read the report here:

CREDO Mobile’s CEO Michael Kieschnick also recently advocated for telecoms to take steps to protect its customers’ rights to privacy, including minimizing the amount of information they collect and store in the first place — and thus minimize the information they could be asked to hand over to authorities.
