Biden 2006: Don't Trust a President Who Spies on People

By Joe Schoffstall | June 12, 2013 | 2:13pm EDT

In 2006, then-Senator Joe Biden said he doesn't trust a president or vice president who spies on American citizens.

A clip of Biden's May 12, 2006 comment resurfaced and was played on last night's "Special Report With Bret Baier":

"I don't have to listen to your phone calls to know what you're doing. If I know every single phone call that you've made, I'm able to determine every single person you talk to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive."

"The real question here is what do they do with this information they collect that does not have anything to do with Al-Qaida?", said Biden, adding: "We're going to trust the president and vice president of the United States that we're doing the right thing? Don't count me in on that."
