House votes to renew FISA surveillance program, following mixed messages from Trump

House votes to renew FISA surveillance program, following mixed messages from Trump | 11 Jan 2018 | The House voted Thursday to renew a controversial surveillance program, following mixed messages from President Trump shortly before the vote about his support. The renewal of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which lets agencies collect information on foreign targets abroad, was approved on a 256-164 vote. The bill now heads to the Senate. Trump briefly took aim Thursday morning at the surveillance program despite his administration's official support for renewing it, suggesting the program was used to "badly surveil and abuse" his campaign based on the "phony" Trump dossier.
