Obama Opens NSA’s Vast Trove of Warrantless Data to Entire Intelligence Community, Just in Time for Trump

Recommended Posts

WITH ONLY DAYS until Donald Trump takes office, the Obama administration on Thursday announced new rules that will let the NSA share vast amounts of private data gathered without warrant, court orders or congressional authorization with 16 other agencies, including the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Department of Homeland Security.

The new rules allow employees doing intelligence work for those agencies to sift through raw data collected under a broad, Reagan-era executive order that gives the NSA virtually unlimited authority to intercept communications abroad. Previously, NSA analysts would filter out information they deemed irrelevant and mask the names of innocent Americans before passing it along.

The change was in the works long before there was any expectation that someone like Trump might become president. The last-minute adoption of the procedures is one of many examples of the Obama administration making new executive powers established by the Bush administration permanent, on the assumption that the executive branch could be trusted to police itself.

I voted for Senior...and Junior.  Backed Perot.

Skipped Obummer twice since I hated both candidates. 

He is the worst thing to happen and we all know that he was selected. All he did was spout hate of whitey and America in his youth.

Wonder why all his past records are sealed? Because he is a sham. Two Years is all the public service he did before popping out of nowhere since it was easy to manipulate media and such while railing on how he would be the first black president.

Since Trump is going to undo most of "O's" executive orders why doesn't he undo "O's" college records, grades??????

He probably already has all the information. Sealed doesn't mean deleted.  ;)
