The House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday to renew U.S. spy powers first revealed by Edward Snowden in 2013. Its supporters say it strikes a fair balance on a number of civil liberties concerns that have intensified since the 2013 leaks by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
As of press time, the House of Representatives is still planning to hold the FISA vote soon.
Astoundingly, per NBC News, this awkward real-time pivot by Trump via his Twitter account has caused House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to request that Speaker Paul Ryan cancel the FISA vote today due to the president's clear misunderstanding of the situation. However, prior to voting to keep the surveillance tools intact, the House rejected an amendment that would have required authorities to obtain a warrant prior to accessing communication information obtained on American citizens via foreign surveillance.
Top Intelligence Committee Republicans and Democrats had been working with Trump administration officials on legislation renewing Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) amendments - which allows for warrantless surveillance of foreigners and is set to expire.
FISA is a program that lets the government collect electronic communications of foreigners overseas, even when they're talking to USA citizens; that includes emails and text messages. "It was drafted without any input from the Judiciary committee, Democrats or Republicans".

Nadler criticized the HPSCI-backed bill for failing to adequately address a number of privacy concerns.
However, while the bill seeks to close the loophole, it would make significant exceptions. It allows investigators to view Americans' information without a court order before opening a probe.
Tom Bossert, the homeland security adviser who helps coordinate the administration's national security posture, helped triage the fallout, according to two people familiar with the matter. Privacy-minded lawmakers have advocated for codifying an end to "abouts". "I don't think they're mutually exclusive". "I will urge all my colleagues to oppose it as well unless one of these amendments.is adopted". Justin Amash, R-Mich. and Rep. The House Freedom Caucus declared its support for it, underscoring the splintering inside the GOP on the surveillance authority. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has vowed to filibuster the legislation passed by the House, but the Senate is ultimately expected to approve the bill.
Intelligence officials have so far refused to tell Congress how many unknowing Americans have had their personal communications collected under the program. Mark Warner, D-Va., called Trump's initial criticism of the law "irresponsible" and "untrue", adding "FISA is something the President should have known about long before he turned on Fox this morning". "But the warrant requirement, in fact, is not a warrant requirement, it would operate in very limited circumstances".
The measure would have required the Federal Bureau of Investigation to get a probable cause warrant to continue even querying the database of intelligence collected on foreign targets overseas.
United States intelligence agencies have pressed lawmakers to preserve the programs.
