FISA Abuse Will Continue if Congressional Leaders Get Their Way

BY Jason Pye and Brett Tolman

With the reauthorization of expired portions of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act poised to sail through the House of Representatives to await his signature, President Trump radically changed the game with just a few words on Twitter: “WARRANTLESS SURVEILLANCE OF AMERICANS IS WRONG!”

Hope on the Horizon for FISA Reform

On March 15, the authority for Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act formally expired. This is one of the provisions that spawned the Edward Snowden leaks back in 2013 and drew the American people’s attention to the scope of abuses perpetrated by the intelligence community. Though some reforms have been made, many in Congress still stand by the program despite the revelations.

"We All Stand Vulnerable": Mike Lee Champions Real Reform to the Federal Government's FISA Spying Power

Three provisions of the Foreign International Surveillance Act (FISA) will expire on Sunday. The expiration of these provisions isn’t a surprise, but Congress has treated it as such because of its proclivity for governing by crisis. Another issue that has reverberated in the debate over the reauthorization of these provisions is the attempt by congressional leadership to shut out the voices of privacy hawks in Congress.

Deliberate Assaults on Our Constitution and We the People

John Solomon in Just the News and Sara Carter in SaraACarter.com have independently concluded that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) knew that there was no improper collusion between Trump or his aides with Russia. Through extensive requests for documents created by the FBI and DOJ it is virtually certain that these organizations knew there was no collusion shortly after Trump’s inauguration in early 2017. Thus, all the congressional investigations and the Mueller investigation were most likely attempts by government agents and their political allies to cover-up wrongful spying and unmasking for political advantages in the 2016 election. This is one of the worst deliberate assaults on our Constitution and We the People in American history.
