Congress Bribes Itself To Renew Dystopian FISA 'Sham Reforms' That Actually 'Codify Stat

• Zero Hedge

Late last year, Congress elected to punt the issue of FISA renewal - the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that was designed to surveil terrorists in foreign countries, and has since been horrendously abused by the US intelligence community to target Americans - including former President Donald Trump.

Now, they have 9 days to go to come up with a permanent replacement. To that end, House Speaker Mike Johnson put forth "RISAA" - a bill backed by Ohio Rep. Mike Turner and the intelligence committee, and just passed through the House Rules Committee - where a final floor vote will likely take place on Thursday.
