Critics argue that the 702 program vacuums up the information of millions of USA citizens who communicate with those individuals, and that the US government should not be allowed to specifically search for that US person information or use it against Americans in court without a warrant.
The House voted Thursday to renew a controversial surveillance program that targets foreign terrorists but also sweeps up emails, texts and other electronic communication from an unknown number of Americans.
The bill still has to pass the upper chamber of Congress, where Republican Senator Rand Paul and Democratic Senator Ron Wyden are staunchly opposed. At 7:33 a.m. ET on Thursday, he wrote, "House votes on controversial FISA ACT today".
Napolitano claimed during the segment that Trump's "woes began" because the Obama administration supposedly conducted warrantless surveillance of the Trump campaign - although he presented no evidence to back up this claim. To ensure a smoother ride, Senate majority whip John Cornyn (R-TX) suggested that the House bill might get attached to the omnibus spending bill that will need to get approved by January 19th to avoid a shutdown, which is coincidentally the same date as the expiration of 702's current authorization.

This bill doesn't just renew Section 702 for six years; it also codifies permission for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to access and use data secretly collected by Americans for a host of criminal cases that have nothing to do with protecting America from foreign threats.
On Tuesday, the White House issued a statement of support for the bill, saying that Section 702 "is vital to keeping the nation safe" and that reauthorizing the bill before its expiration "is a top priority of the administration". That's the second tweet the president sent from his Twitter account, the individual said.
The legislation still has to go through the Senate.
