The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board released a report Thursday recommending Congress continue to allow federal intelligence agencies to access U.S. citizens’ private messages without a warrant if they’re communicating with “targeted” foreigners.
The board voted 3-2 along partisan lines to approve the recommendations, according to the New York Times. Through Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, intelligence agencies have access to a searchable database of messages between foreign nationals “that are expected to receive, communicate, or possess foreign intelligence information” and American citizens, according to the report.
