    House passes bill to renew NSA internet spying tool

    House passes bill to renew NSA internet spying tool


    Without congressional action, legal support for Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which authorizes the program, will expire next week, although intelligence officials say it could continue through April.

    Section 702 allows the NSA to eavesdrop on vast amounts of digital communications from foreigners living outside the United States through U.S. companies such as Facebook Inc (FB.O), Verizon Communications Inc (VZ.N) and Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google.
    Trump's original objection:


    "This is the act that may have been used, with the help of the discredited and phony Dossier, to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration and others?" the president said in a tweet.
    and now he says it's needed.

    And I agree, it's needed. Intelligence gathering from foreigners is an essential part of keeping the US safe.

    Now, will Trump sign it, even though he claimed it was used against him?

    Sorry, started a thread after this one. Did not see it.

    Yes, I have no doubt that Trump had no fucking clue what FISA was until the Fox and Friends ass kissers talked about how awful it was.
