White House denies FISA confusion

S--HOLE COUNTRIES’ President Trump is under fire for comments on immigrants from Haiti El Salvador and African nations. According to reports Trump asked ‘Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here

The House approved the legislation 256-164 with support from Democrats and Republican leadership to extend the program for six years. Under Section 702, the USA government is supposed to target foreigners overseas, but Americans' communications - even those in the United States - reportedly can be snared if they are part of conversations that the targets are having.

The bill approved by the House allows the Federal Bureau of Investigation to continue scanning the database, using search terms, for information on Americans. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says he intends to block any such legislation in the Senate.

Since the Snowden revelations in 2013, the public learned that Section 702 has been used unlawfully and in ways that was never intended.

U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted at 7:33 a.m. ET on Tuesday: "House votes on controversial FISA ACT today".

Yesterday Trump tweeted: "This is the act that may have been used, with the help of the discredited and phony Dossier, to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration and others?"

Trump attempted to walk back the tweet about 90 minutes later, urging legislators to approve the reauthorization - but top Democrats seized on the confusion to demand the withdrawal of the controversial bill.

Chris Matthews apologizes for making joke about 'Bill Cosby pill'
The MSNBC spokesman said that they thoroughly reviewed the situation at the time and that Matthews received a formal reprimand. Terry McAuliffe punching President Donald Trump, the comments are not surprising. "Runway walk", he could be heard saying .

"We have not seen any abuse of section 702 authority by intelligence agencies and law enforcement in the past, and I am confident that they will continue to perform with the highest professional standards in the future", the congressman said.

The president's chief of staff, Gen. John Kelly, scrambled to the Hill, while panicked aides alerted the president to the firestorm his tweets had caused.

"With each day that passes since this nation was attacked on September 11th, 2001 it seems that the concern over terrorism has waned".

Apparently, House Speaker Paul Ryan had a word with the president in between those two tweets.

House leadership today once again caved to irresponsible fearmongering from the intelligence agencies and succeeded in jamming through a hastily drafted surveillance bill. Missouri Sens. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, and Roy Blunt, a Republican, voted in favor.

For much of the past year, beleaguered government officials have sought to downplay Donald Trump's tweets.

NFL Divisional Round: 10 fast facts for Eagles v Falcons
Even though the Eagles secured the one seed and home-field advantage in the NFC , they are underdogs in this matchup . Atlanta has a tremendous defense, which is giving up only 104.1 yards per game on the ground.

That was after Trump tweeted later this morning, this time supporting the bill.

The FISA-created procedure, enacted in defiance of the Fourth Amendment - which makes no distinction between government evidence gathering and government intelligence gathering - permits a secret court in Washington to issue general warrants based on the government's need to gather intelligence about national security from foreigners among us.

The news comes as North Korea claimed Michael Wolff's bombshell new book about Trump spells the end of the president's political career.

Action now moves to the U.S. Senate, which should take to heart Ryan's words.

"The president has been clear what his position is", she concluded. "It's what brings Republicans and Democrats together".

She also said the president has a "great understanding" of the program; Democratic lawmakers, disagree, with the House Democratic Whip Office blasting out an email saying the episode was just "the latest example of President Trump undermining American security and not knowing what's happening in Congress". He said Trump's "woes" began with surveillance.
