House Judiciary Committee Exploring New Options to Fight Government Overreach

The overreach of various federal government agencies is a major concern these days. Whether it’s a case of Americans being unfairly targeted by the FBI or the IRS choosing to go after the Tea Party and other conservatives, there are many examples to cite.

Right now, people are eager for a solution to rein these agencies in and stop them from being able to go after whoever they want whenever they please.

According to breaking developments from Breitbart News, this issue is also something that the House Judiciary Committee is intensely focusing on.

Jim Jordan Weighs In

During a conversation with Breitbart, Rep. Jordan, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee provided some valuable insight that Americans will want to hear.

According to the congressman, he’s made it a top priority to ensure that the expiration of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)’s Section 702 gives lawmakers more room to fight for necessary changes.

Such changes would entail cutting back on how agencies like the FBI are able to surveil individuals. On numerous occasions, Section 702 has been used to this end, just as it’s been used in ways that could be seen as clashing with the Fourth Amendment.

If Jordan gets his way, all of this will change and Americans will see more safeguards around their individual privacy rights. Though the first step is seeing to it that Section 702 does, in fact, expire.

Stay Tuned

The work of the House Judiciary Committee remains very much ongoing. As this year continues, Americans can expect to learn more about the fate of Section 702, the conduct of various federal government agencies, and more.

Right now, public sentiment remains largely distrustful and suspicious of organizations like the FBI, due to their troublesome track records.

Hence, If Jordan is able to ensure that Section 702 meets its demise, this will be the first step in the right direction.
