Trump loves warrantless spying – on the people, not him – that is.

❝ The fight over a critical loophole in U.S. surveillance law may not be resolved in Congress before the year ends, but the Trump administration appears to have no qualms about keeping it open, even if the law expires…

❝ As The New York Times reports, “executive branch lawyers have now concluded that the government could lawfully continue to spy under the program through late April without new legislation,” a revelation that is sure to be just as controversial as the surveillance law itself, which is harshly criticized by privacy advocates for its practice of sweeping up the communications of American citizens while spying on foreign targets.

Trumps gets his shorts bunched if some kind of Fed says they’re going to check his tax returns. Turning loose any ordinary citizen’s communications to be Hoovered up by that Great NSA Vacuum Cleaner in the Sky doesn’t bother him in the least.
