CHUCK TODD: I know you're going to be flying back form Minneapolis to Washington for this Special Senate Session. The PATRIOT Act, the NSA, section 215, I assume you are a supporter of the USA Freedom Act. Are you?
BERNIE SANDERS: I may well be voting for it. It does not go as far as I would like it to go. I voted against the original PATRIOT Act and against the re-authorization of the PATRIOT Act.
We have got to be vigorous about defending the American people and we have to do it in a way that protects their Constitutional rights, and I am very very worried, what we are seeing not only from not only the NSA and the government, but from corporate America...
Privacy rights, it is a huge issue. I am not comfortable with it, but we have to look at the best of bad situations.
