The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released partially redacted documents related to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court’s (FISC) authorization of the 2018 certifications under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). The FISC initially approved most parts of the certification, but ruled that other aspects of the FBI protocols concerning information regarding U.S. persons were inadequate. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review partially affirmed the FISC’s decision. The government then submitted updated FBI querying procedures, which the FISC approved.
