Donald Trump criticizes, then praises United States spying tool
Jan 12, 2018, 03:24
An amendment to the FISA act is being offered, which would, per the New York Times, "ban the practice whereby officials at the N.S.A., the F.B.I. and other security agencies, without a warrant, search for and read private messages of Americans that the government incidentally swept up under the 702 program".
Finally, it seems, someone reminded Trump that, contrary to what he might have seen on TV, his administration supportspassing the FISA bill. "We reauthorize spying on foreigners in foreign lands". It also could happen if two Americans are communicating with one another and mention the name of a foreigner who is under surveillance.
The House earlier rejected, by 233-183, a measure that would have required the Federal Bureau of Investigation to get a warrant to continue even querying the database when Americans are involved. But it would require investigators to get probable cause warrants to view the actual content in cases unrelated to national security.
The law gives USA intelligence agencies the power to spy on the electronic communications and phone calls of foreigners residing outside the United States to try to gather information about any terrorist plots or activities. "Men aren't angels. We need to make sure somebody is watching and there are checks and balances".
It is unclear how Trump "personally directed the fix to the unmasking process since taking office", since the bill's author, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes of California, stripped the major changes to unmasking procedures from the measure before presenting it for a vote by the full House. Justin Amash, R-Mich., and Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., failed by a vote of 183-233. "The president, not particularly informed on a specific subject, fueled by his own sense of grievance, tweeting against his own administration's position".
Democratic leadership had tried to convince Republicans to postpone a vote on the bill-but neither Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi nor the ranking Democrat on the Intelligence Committee Adam Smith supported the amendment in the end. That caught aides and lawmakers off guard.
"The bill goes too far in terms of beginning the process that we can not begin in putting walls up".
However, earlier in a tweet, Trump had criticised the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) programme, saying that it was used to gather information about him and surveil his campaign.
Two postings Thursday on Twitter by Trump came before the House was scheduled to vote later in the day on making changes to reauthorization of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
Trump took to Twitter Thursday and referenced Clinton as he spoke on the ongoing Russian Federation investigation. Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who has also made the television rounds in recent days, has pushed for less invasive spying measures. Or Trump Tower digital chatter might have shown up while authorities dug through the vast quantities of data hoovered up via more sweeping foreign surveillance programs. He has offered no proof for such claims.
The reauthorization is potentially a politically fraught issue on Capitol Hill, and the House is expected to vote on the bill later Thursday.
