US Senators Warn New Bill Expands FBI Worldwide Online Surveillance

Two members of the Senate Intelligence Committee are warning that a new bill would expand the FBI’s ability to access Americans’ online records without a warrant. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden and New Mexico Senator Martin Heinrich say the 2017 intelligence authorization bill could allow the FBI to access email, chat and messaging records, as well as browser histories. On Thursday, Senator Heinrich called the bill a “massive expansion of government surveillance that lacks independent oversight.”
