OTI's Robyn Greene was quoted in a Washington Examiner article on Adam Klein, Trump's nominee for the chairman of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board:

"He's extremely deferential to the intelligence community, almost to the point where he fails to ask the tough questions," said Robyn Greene, policy counsel and government affairs lead at the New America Foundation's Open Technology Institute.
"The warrantless query of U.S. person information is a perfect example," she said. "It's very important as the chair of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board that you be really scrupulous about addressing the concerns of the privacy community as well as the arguments of the intelligence community."
