Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) co-sponsored landmark legislation introduced this week that would prevent warrantless searches of Americans’ calls, emails, and other communications.
The legislation is called, “Uniting and Strengthening America by Reforming and Improving the Government’s High-Tech Surveillance Act of 2017” and is sponsored by Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Ted Poe (R-TX), Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), Justin Amash (R-MI), and Ted Lieu (D-CA).
The bill reforms Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to end warrantless backdoor searches of Americans’ calls, emails, texts and other communications that are routinely swept up under a program designed to spy on foreign targets. The sweeping authority has been clouded in secrecy, in part because the government refuses to answer essential questions about how it impacts Americans, including who can be targeted and how many American communications the government collects.
This is a HUGE for the American people IF it passes, all that and more below…
