– “Members of Congress Just Voted to Give the Trump Administration Greater Spy Powers”
“House leadership today [Jan. 11] once again caved to irresponsible fearmongering from the intelligence agencies and succeeded in jamming through a hastily drafted surveillance bill.
In a 256-164 vote, the House passed a bill that would extend, or in many respects possibly expand, a controversial spying authority known as Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. This law is used to spy on the emails, text messages, and other electronic communications of Americans and foreigners without a warrant. The bill now goes to the Senate,” by the ACLU’s Neema Singh Guliani, ACLU Legislative Counsel & Elizabeth Beavers, Foreign Policy Manager, Indivisible Project.
