On Monday, Democratic Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin introduced a resolution to censure President Bush for authorizing the no-warrant domestic surveillance program. Feingold accused Bush of breaking the law and misleading Congress about it.

The Bush administration has argued Congress granted President Bush the power to order U.S. intelligence agencies to conduct domestic surveillance with the resolution authorizing military action after 9/11.

After Feingold introduced his resolution to censure President Bush, he immediately left the chambers. Republican Senator Arlen Specter blasted Feingold for leaving and called the resolution to censure "excessive," explaining that "the President may be wrong, but he has not acted in bad faith."
Following Specter's complaint that he had wanted to debate Feingold, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin from Illinois took to the floor to fill in for Feingold and debate Specter.
