FISA Reauthorization May Not Be Done Deal Just Yet as Critics Rally, Trump Sounds Cautionary Note

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.C.), Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) announced they support upper-chamber passage of the measure, known officially as the “USA Freedom Reauthorization Act of 2020.”

Attorney General William Barr added his voice to support for the bill that passed the House on a 278-136 vote tally, with most of the opposition coming from Republicans.

The present FISA law ends March 15, so the Senate must pass some version of the House bill and then it be signed by Trump to avoid lapsed authorization.
