Congress is going to try to expand the Patriot Act tonight and hopes
no one will notice
July 11, 2016 2:42 pm
In the wake of recent mass shootings, Monday night the U.S. House of
Representatives is scheduled to vote on an expansion of the Patriot
Act, which significantly broadened government surveillance powers
after 9/11. The proposed bill, H.R. 5606, expands Section 314 of the
Patriot Act to cover non-terrorism or money laundering related
investigations. Critics claim that the bill is a threat to the privacy
of innocent Americans and is being rammed through Congress without
debate.
