“AmyJeffress,the former top security adviser to former Attorney General EricHolder, was appointed by the intelligence court in 2015 to give anindependent assessment of the FBI’s record of compliance.”
“Jeffressobserved: “I don’t think that the FBI will voluntarily set limits on its querying procedures, because law enforcement agencies tend not to take steps to restrict or limit what they can do, for obviousreasons.”
“Oneof the biggest concerns involves so-called backdoor searches in whichthe FBI can mine NSA intercept data for information that may have been incidentally collected about an American. No warrant or courtapproval is required, and the FBI insists these searches are one ofthe most essential tools in combating terrorist plots.”
