The National Defense Authorization Act (HR 1540) was passed by the 112th Congress in 2011. It betrays our constitutional principles and authorizes the indefinite detention of American citizens without charges or trial, destroying habeas corpus. The vote on this watershed bill should serve as a barometer of a public servant’s fitness to uphold the oath of office. Adam Schiff voted for the NDAA even though most California Democrats like Xavier Becerra, Karen Bass, Maxine Waters, Judy Chu and Zoe Lofgren all did not.
