Friday, April 19, 2024

U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) released the following statements, warning against a new power grab by the FBI through Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) section 702 reauthorization—which the House of Representatives has already passed and the Senate is currently negotiating. Senator Hawley announced the introduction of an amendment to protect Americans from this further government overreach.

Senator Hawley has repeatedly condemned the FBI for abusing its authority to surveil Americans and colluding with Big Tech to harvest Americans’ data.
