Trump Loyalists Kill Vote on US Wiretap Program

Recently, a group of loyalists to former President Donald Trump successfully blocked a vote on the reauthorization of a controversial US wiretap program.

The program, known as Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), allows for the collection of data on foreign targets without a warrant. However, critics argue that the program also sweeps up information on American citizens in the process.

Trump loyalists, including Representative Devin Nunes, claimed that the program was being used to spy on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. Despite pushback from both Democrats and some Republicans, the vote on reauthorization was ultimately blocked.

Many see this move as a victory for Trump and his supporters, who have long claimed that they were unfairly targeted by the US intelligence community. However, others worry about the implications of allowing a controversial surveillance program to continue unchecked.
