House votes to renew surveillance law that collects Americans' emails without warrants

Erin Kelly, USA TODAY
2 minutes ago
WASHINGTON — The House voted Thursday to renew for six years a controversial surveillance program that collects the content of Americans' email, text messages, photos and other electronic communication without a warrant.


The vote was 256-164 to extend the program, known as Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

An alternative bill by Reps. Justin Amash, R-Mich., and Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., failed by a vote of 183-233. That bill, which had strong support from both liberal and conservative civil liberties groups, would have required federal agents to get warrants before searching through Americans' data that is collected when the U.S. government spies on foreigners abroad.

Anyone wants to have my email address? We could talk about how to overthrow your government and let the USA join Greater Germany.

here's our well-informed, mature, stable genius' thoughts on it:

"
“House votes on controversial FISA ACT today.” 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?
"

[2 hrs later, after angry phone calls]

"
With that being said, I have personally directed the fix to the unmasking process since taking office and today’s vote is about foreign surveillance of foreign bad guys on foreign land. We need it! Get smart!

House votes 256-164 to expand Trump's warrantless surveillance powers for the next six years. The vote to reform warrantless searches of Americans' phone calls and e-mails failed, needing the support of 26 more. Dems could have swung it, but 55 of them voted with the Trump camp.

Adam Schiff on January 7: "I think everyone in Congress questions Trump's capacity to be President"

Adam Schiff on January 11: "Trump should have expanded powers to conduct warrantless surveillance of every last American citizen"

@tumbleweed. You don't need to read pages from a phonebook anymore to filibuster. They made it way easier to do because republicans did it nonstop under Obama and their senators are all tired old white men.
