Trump Urges Republicans to 'Kill FISA' Reauthorization Bill. 'THEY SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN!!!'

  • last month
Former President Donald Trump urged Republicans to kill a FISA reauthorization bill ahead of a key House vote. He claimed FISA was illegally used against him, saying they spied on his campaign. House Republicans have struggled with divisions over FISA and competing GOP factions. At least one Republican said he would vote against a procedural vote, endangering the bill. Section 702 allows warrantless surveillance of foreigners but also incidentally collects US data. The bill would reauthorize Section 702 for 5 years with some reforms around US data access. Speaker Johnson faces pressure with his majority and Trump weighing in against him.
