With Bipartisan Backing, House Gives Trump Administration Broad Latitude to Spy on Americans

With Bipartisan Backing, House Gives Trump Administration Broad Latitude to Spy on Americans | 11 Jan 2018 | With bipartisan backing, the House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday that would renew one of the government’s most sweeping surveillance authorities for six years with minimal changes. The measure, which passed 256-164, reauthorized Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which was set to expire later this month. The law was first passed in 2008 to legalize President [sic] George W. Bush's warrantless wiretapping program. It allows the National Security Agency to collect Americans' communications with people overseas, as long as the NSA is "targeting" the foreigners involved.
