Mostly law professors | Sometimes contrarian | Often libertarian | Always independent
The fight over renewing section 702 of FISA has highlighted a split among conservatives. Former Rep. Bob Goodlatte and Matthew Silver have attacked me and Michael Ellis by name over the issue in recent op-eds.
The issue is whether conservatives should join the left in demanding court orders based on probable cause before the FBI can search for data about Americans in a collection of 702 data that has already been gathered lawfully.
Goodlatte & Silver say yes; Ellis & Baker say no.
