FLASHBACK: Adam Schiff Appears on Russian TV, Calls For More FISA Transparency


During a 2013 appearance on Kremlin-owned Russian TV network RT, Congressman Adam Schiff robustly argued for more FISA transparency and for more decisions of FISA judges to be declassified.

Schiff appeared on RT to discuss the scope of the NSA's surveillance program of American citizens following Edward Snowden's revelations.

The California lawmaker said he was working on reforms to "make the FISA court more transparent so the American people can understand what's being done in their name, in the name of national security."

He added that FISA transparency was vital to produce a "more informed debate about the balance between privacy and security," while also calling for more opinions from FISA judges to be declassified so Americans could see how the law was being interpreted.
