The president has willfully broken the law. He has allowed the citizens of the United States to be spied upon. In what capacity, we do not know. To what degree, we do not know.
All we know is what we were supposed to have never learned. Ostensibly, the president claims to have gotten the approval of Congress.
Unfortunately, Congress either has a selective memory or they never sanctioned such an abuse of power.
The president is not above the law and must be held accountable for his indiscretions. He has been given a free pass on most of his administration's abuses, but this is one too many. It is time to purge this country of those in the administration seeking to make a farce of its citizens' rights.
