FBI to Seize Internet Browser Data

Posted by

New legislation sponsored by Senator John Cornyn of Texas will, if passed, amend the Electronic Communications Privacy Act to allow for the FBI to issue “national security letter” subpoenas for the seizure of internet browser records without the authorization of a judge.

Those who will be targets of such seizures are likely to be perceived as terrorists – a term that allows for a swath of agency mediated anti-liberty actions. The present FBI director James Comey allegedly finds such legislation to be of primary priority in 2016.
