Calling out the FBI in the Guardian

On February 23, 2014, the Guardian quoted me in a story covering the latest proposed NSA reforms from the White House. Among them is a suggestion to give data collected in bulk (ie unhinged by any judicial warrant or constitutionally required individualized suspicion) by the NSA to the FBI for retention and analysis. The Guardian's Spencer Ackerman quoted my warning that "[t]he FBI’s history of abusing the civil liberties of Americans is longer even than the NSA’s," and that "[t]he US Congress found wide-ranging problems spanning several decades the last time anyone even looked very closely at the FBI, which is long overdue for a thorough investigation of the sort of the Church Committee performed in the 70s."
