House rejects new limits on government surveillance powers

In a victory for the Trump administration, the House on Thursday approved legislation to renew government surveillance powers while voting down new limits on how authorities can use the information that is collected.

Just a few hours before the vote, President Trump roiled the waters by sending out a tweet that appeared to contradict his own administration’s opposition to the changes, which were offered by Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.).

That amendment failed by a vote of 183-233.

“House votes on controversial FISA ACT today.” 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?” Trump tweeted.

    The FISA Courts are clear violation of the 4th Amendment and I promise these Congressmen and women will be held accountable for passing the anti-Constitutional act..!!!

    Some of the Obama cops appear to have been bad cops.That however doesn’t negate the need for cops, it just points out the need to make sure you watch the cops
