    Leaked Senate Talking Points Say Internet Surveillance Warrants Would Force FBI to Let Terrorists Bomb Things

    Requiring federal agents to have “probable cause” to eavesdrop on the internet activities of American citizens poses a direct threat to national security and would force the FBI to stand by while terrorist plots unfold on U.S. soil, according to a leaked copy of talking points distributed to Senate lawmakers this month.

    The talking points, which were distributed by the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to a spokesperson for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, seek to provide a communications guide for promoting an amendment floated by McConnell this year that would have expanded the U.S. Justice Department’s use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

    The do ent was circulated on Capitol Hill ahead of a Senate vote this month to reinstate three key FBI surveillance authorities under the USA FREEDOM Authorization Act, including Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which expired March 15.

    The Daily Beast first reported on the McConnell amendment on May 11. A draft being circulated in the Senate reportedly contained an “alarming expansion of Attorney General Bill Barr’s powers under FISA” and “explicitly permits” the warrantless collection of Americans’ internet search and browser data by the FBI.
