ABSTRACT

[August 9, 2013 Letter to the Attorney General of the U.S. Department of Justice Eric H. Holder, Jr.]   [open pdf - 227KB]

From the Letter: "As you know, we have a number of concerns about the collection and use of information under the extraordinary authority granted by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the FISA Amendments Act, and the USA PATRIOT [Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism] Act. Among those concerns is that the government may use this information for purposes wholly unrelated to counterterrorism or the collection of foreign intelligence. We are particularly alarmed by recent reports about what appears to be the routine use of foreign intelligence information in criminal trials."
