“I am filing a lawsuit against President Barack Obama because he has publicly refused to stop a clear and continuing violation of the 4th Amendment," Paul said in a statement from RandPac, his political action committee. "The Bill of Rights protects all citizens from general warrants. I expect this case to go all the way to the Supreme Court and I predict the American people will win.”

Paul wasn't at all impressed when Obama announced changes to the NSA's surveillance activities last month in a press conference.

"Well, what I think I heard was that if you like your privacy, you can keep it," he said at the time.

Paul, Kibbe, and Cuccinelli are scheduled to hold a press conference to announce the lawsuit at 11 a.m. ET at the U.S. district court in Washington, DC.
