FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE SURVEILLANCE COURT HOLDS FBI VIOLATED CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF US CITIZENS



The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) has released an unclassified (partially redacted) version of an October 2018 Opinion of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, where the FISA Court found that the FBI's warrantless  searches of databases violated the Fourth Amendment rights of US citizens. Apparently only evidence of crimes, or foreign intelligence data, are permissible, in connection with the warrantless communication surveillance program.

Given that we so rarely see FISA Court decisions and opinions, readers are urged to review the 138-page document here.
