George Will: ‘Willingness to Trust the Executive Branch is Today Minimal and Should Be’

George Will had some harsh words for the Obama administration Sunday.

Appearing on ABC’s This Week, Will said that the recent revelation concerning National Security Agency information gathering is going to metastasize the IRS controversy into a national security scandal, and concluded that as a result, “the willingness to trust the executive branch is today minimal and should be.”

GEORGE WILL: This is where the IRS scandal metastasizes into a national security scandal because I’m sure I’m not the only American saying, looking at the NSA information gathering saying, “Well, this would really be a problem if we had the kind of government that say unleashes the IRS on political opponents. Oh, come to think about it, we do have that kind of government.” And therefore the willingness to trust the executive branch is today minimal and should be.
