FISA is close to renewal, including warrantless spying on Americans' web browsing habits. The House has added a token gesture to pretend to support due process
, but it's a sham.Trump and Barr have come out against FISA renewal
, with a veto threat.
Now, obviously Trump is only taking this position for paranoid and self-serving reasons, because he believes in a conspiracy theory that Obama used the FBI to illegally interfere with his campaign, or something; whatever the fuck he just heard on Hannity. And there's every possibility he'll reverse his position tomorrow. Remember how many times he changed his stance on the ACA repeal bill a couple years back?
But man, wouldn't it be something if these
assholes were the ones who sunk Bush's warrantless domestic surveillance apparatus. A man can dream.
