For example, As Attorney General, I will make sure law enforcement has the skills and resources to track and capture would-be terrorists by intercepting email and cell phone communications.
Terrorists come in all stripes and shapes, and are both domestic and foreign. And they do not only exist in the big cities on the East and West Coasts.
...while federal law prohibits me from commenting on even the existence of any information I may have as the result of having served as a United States Attorney here in Wisconsin you don't have to take my word for it. A cursory look at news accounts indicates that, of course there are terrorists in Wisconsin.
So, he wants to tap your phone and email to protect you from threats that may or may not exist, because he can't tell you about them. And it doesn't matter to him whether the communication is foriegn or domestic.
Just trust him...
He must hear the voices as well.
