  •  All "access" should be FISA court approved, no? (2+ / 0-)

    Decisions about "access" should not be left to underlings, especially private contractors.  

    Americans have been operating under the assumption that "probable cause" presented to and approved by the FISA court is the only means for approving "access" to the data.

    They need to stop breaking the law and honor the Constitution.

      Actually, the Justice Department and FISA court already established "rules" that allow pretty free use of investigative tools without "individualized" court orders (aka, warrants).

      What you are saying is a "should be" not an "is".

      But, I'm afraid this is all classified, so please trust your elected officials to provide oversight, trusting they have your interests at heart and would never allow compromise of constitutional mandates.
