Senate votes to extend warrantless surveillance program until 2023

President Trump inks renewal of NSA's surveillance program Senate votes to extend warrantless surveillance program until 2023
Sandra Phillips | 20 January, 2018, 08:07

President Donald Trump has signed into law a legislation that renews the authority of the United States to collect foreign intelligence on foreign targets overseas.

"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?" the presidential tweet said.

In a statement, Trump said it allows the Intelligence Community, under a robust regime of oversight by all three branches of Government, to collect critical intelligence on worldwide terrorists, weapons proliferators, and other important foreign intelligence targets located outside the US.

"'House votes on controversial FISA ACT today, '" Trump tweeted.

The Senate on Thursday passed a bill to renew a critical foreign intelligence collection program dubbed the "holy grail" because it allows USA spy agencies to conduct surveillance on foreign targets overseas. "This is NOT the same FISA law that was so wrongly abused during the election", Trump said in a Twitter message on Friday.

"Intelligence produced under this authority is vital to keeping the nation safe".

In March 2017, Trump claimed that then-President Barack Obama had spied on Trump Tower.

Section 702 became law in 2008 when Congress amended FISA rules. Democrats say there is no evidence that happened. "I will always do the right thing for our country and put the safety of the American people first!"

The bill is supported by his administration and congressional allies, and soon after, the president posted another tweet endorsing passage.

The final bill requires the Federal Bureau of Investigation to seek a warrant to view the actual contents of communications.

US President Donald Trump on Friday said he signed into law a bill renewing the National Security Agency's warrantless internet surveillance program, sealing a defeat for digital privacy advocates. A bipartisan group of senators, including Rand Paul, Ron Wyden, Steve Daines, Patrick Leahy, and Elizabeth Warren, held a press conference shortly after the decision to urge their colleagues to support a warrant requirement to search Americans' data.
