The House Intelligence Committee’s Section 702 Bill is a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Sharon Bradford-Franklin wrote for Just Security about the House Intelligence Committee's bill to reauthorize FISA Section 702, a law that threatens Americans' privacy:

"House leadership is about to make another attempt at what it failed to do in December: push through an updated version of the House Intelligence Committee’s FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act of 2017 by claiming the bill is a surveillance reform measure. The bill would reauthorize and expand – rather than reform – Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the provision that allows the government to warrantlessly collect the communications of non-Americans located abroad, including their communications with Americans."
