Department of Justice Allows FBI to Wiretap Americans

The Federal Bureau of investigation has been authorized to wiretap domestic telephone conversations made to overseas locations, the Justice Department has claimed.

“[The Office of Legal Counsel] agreed with the FBI that under certain circumstances, (word or words redacted) allows the FBI to ask for and obtain these records on a voluntary basis from the providers, without legal process or a qualifying emergency," the Justice Department's inspector general said in a recent report by McClatchy Newspapers.'
