A bipartisan amendment that would have prohibited law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI, from obtaining the web browsing and internet search histories of Americans without a warrant failed to pass in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday by a single vote.
Twenty-seven Republicans and 10 Democrats voted against the amendment to H.R. 6172, which will reauthorize lapsed surveillance powers under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). The amendment offered up by Sen. Ron Wyden, Democrat of Oregon, and Sen. Steve Daines, Republican of Montana, would have forced the government to get a warrant before obtaining the internet search history of Americans.
Michelle Goldberg, NY Times Columnist, appeared on Ari Melber's program. She blasted the government. In particular, the Trump administration: - Says Trump doesn't even try to be president for all Americans. - The Trump administration had a plan to fight coronavirus early on but didn't implement it because it wouldve benefit mostly Blue States. - We don't have a federal government. We have just 50 states. And after that individuals are forced to fend for themselves to deal unemployment, Covid, etc.-
