It doesn’t matter whether your favorite founding father was Hamilton, Madison, Jefferson or Washington; they all recognized the wisdom of leaving the power to declare war in the legislative branch & the danger of letting the executive have that power.

This afternoon, I spoke on the House floor in support of my amendment to rein in FISA and protect Americans’ privacy, and I noted the hypocrisy of Republican and Democratic leaders on this issue. Here’s a short clip: https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4803395/rep-amashs-closing-remarks-fisa-amendment …

#FISA702 allows the U.S. government to collect communications of Americans, which can be searched without a warrant and used in criminal prosecutions.  Contact your Congressmen and urge them to vote YES on the @justinamash - @RepZoeLofgren amendment!

Quoted @justinamash

AS SOON AS TUESDAY EVENING, the House will be voting on the Amash-Lofgren amendment to limit the warrantless collection of Americans’ communications (including content) under Sec. 702 of FISA.

Republicans, this is your chance to rein in the surveillance state. Democrats, this is your chance to keep the president in check. Vote YES on Amash-Lofgren.

Last year, President Trump signed into law a bill to give the FBI and NSA extraordinary powers to warrantlessly collect Americans’ communications under Sec. 702 of FISA. This week, the House will consider my amendment to #HR2740, offered with @RepZoeLofgren, to rein in FISA.

.@justinamash and @RepZoeLofgren have been longtime partners in the fight to protect Americans' privacy by supporting my bill with @RandPaul to fight warrantless surveillance of American citizens. The House must pass their amendment to preserve Americans' civil liberties.

Our amendment upholds the Fourth Amendment by prohibiting the government from doing certain types of warrantless collections under FISA that unconstitutionally sweep up the private communications of countless law-abiding Americans.

FISA 702 allows the government to warrantlessly collect a massive amount of data. In doing so, it collects communications of Americans, which can be searched without a warrant and used in criminal prosecutions. This violates Americans’ Fourth Amendment-secured rights.

If the administration is serious about FISA abuse, then they’ll support my amendment to rein in FISA—to better ensure that the government protects the privacy of all Americans in accordance with the Constitution.

House reps could vote as soon as TOMORROW on a measure that would rein in unconstitutional government surveillance powers. We urgently need people to call their reps and tell them to vote YES on the Amash-Lofgren Section 702 reform amendment. Call now: 202-759-7766

Because the White House prevented us from fixing these issues last year, this week I’m offering an amendment to #HR2740 to narrow the government’s collections under FISA, limiting the warrantless gathering of Americans’ communications.

The 2018 bill reauthorized Sec. 702 of FISA for six years—a section that allows for the warrantless collection of Americans’ communications. In his statement after signing the bill, Pres. Trump’s only criticism was that he’d prefer that the bill reauthorize Sec. 702 permanently.

In 2018, we voted on FISA 702, and I offered an amendment to limit warrantless collection of Americans’ communications. Instead of supporting that amendment, the White House issued a veto threat, and Trump ultimately signed a FISA 702 bill that creates even more privacy problems.

The Trump administration’s narrative allows the White House to complain about FISA abuse while at the same time fighting those of us in Congress who are actually trying to change the laws to prevent unconstitutional spying on Americans.

The White House is undermining this effort to fight unconstitutional surveillance by instead framing surveillance concerns as a problem with particular individuals at the FBI, as if protecting Americans’ rights is just about hiring the right personnel, instead of changing FISA.

The reason for this focus is obvious: We can’t guarantee the government will always hire employees who will respect the people’s rights, so we have to ensure that the law prevents whoever is in government from violating the Constitution or acting without sufficient oversight.

Our primary concern has never been about particular individuals in government who use surveillance authorities; our focus is on limiting the authorities and adding safeguards so that Americans’ rights are protected *regardless* of who in government is doing the surveillance.

Since before the Trump administration, I’ve been leading a bipartisan coalition in Congress fighting the government’s efforts to expand the ability of agencies like the FBI and NSA to collect Americans’ communications without a warrant.
