The infamous “Nunes memo” has landed. Produced by Congressional staff and declassified by the President, the document alleged surveillance warrants on Trump campaign officials from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) were obtained without providing the court with important information.

Intelligence experts have generally been skeptical of the memo’s conclusions, but the fight over this document may do long‐​term damage to attempts to provide important oversight for the secretive FISC.

Join us for a live discussion of surveillance, the rights of Americans, and the future of reforming surveillance authorities. Send your questions via Twitter with “#CatoConnects” or join us on Facebook Live.
