Congress, at Last Minute, Drops Requirement to Obtain Warrant to Monitor Email

Originally posted on BLOGGING BAD w/Gunny G ~ "CLINGERS-AMERICA!":

The federal government will continue to access Americans’ emails without a warrant, after the U.S. Senate dropped a key amendment to legislation now headed to the White House for approval.

 

Last month, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved an amendment attached to the Video Privacy Protection Act Amendments Act (which deals with publishing users’ Netflix information on Facebook pages) that would have required federal law enforcement to obtain a warrant before monitoring email or other data stored remotely (i.e., the cloud).
