Susan Collins, Maine Republican, of the administration's plan to rely on a 1934 statute. Ms. Collins accused administration officials of relying on "outmoded yet potentially sweeping authorities granted in the Communications Act of 1934" that gave the president the power to take over radio stations in a time of national emergency a US false flag.
