Pelosi abandons FISA reauthorization bill after Republicans, Trump sour on proposal

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced on Thursday that she’s ending Democrats’ bid to reauthorize Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) provisions.

Though the bill had previously boasted bipartisan support, Donald Trump and Republican leaders soured on reauthorizing FISA powers due to new revelations about the Obama administration’s abuse of the surveillance tools.

Trump tweeted on Wednesday, “If the FISA Bill is passed tonight on the House floor, I will quickly VETO it. Our Country has just suffered through the greatest political crime in its history. The massive abuse of FISA was a big part of it!”

GOP leaders appeared to agree with Trump’s assessment, pulling their support for the bill ahead of the scheduled vote.

Pelosi sniped on Thursday that the reason she chose to pull the plus is that “the President tweeted that he would veto the bill, and House Republicans abandoned their support for our national security.”

Pelosi also faced opposition to FISA reauthorization from the progressive content of the party, with many far-left representatives complaining that the bill did not go far enough in reforming FISA to protect Americans from government searches and surveillance.

Pelosi said in her announcement that instead of attempting to push the legislation through, “It will be our intention to go to conference in order to ensure that all of the views of all members of our Caucus are represented in the final product.”

  1. If she truly has pulled this stunt I want to say to her it is the first thing I commend her on. Her health both physically and mentally along with all the crimes she has participated in is more than enough to step down or be forced out of office.
    It once was so I might vote democrat and sometime republican. However there is not ONE democrat I could or would vote for now. All the democrats are an embarrassment to our GREAT AMERICA if they do not like living in our country they should go live in the countries they are supportive of.

  2. Nancy Pelosi Is useless in Government! She needs to go! All she does is go for impeachment, doesn’t work WITH the senate, and conjures up bills that she knows won’t pass, and constantly harrasses the President. I don’t know anyone that actually admires her. Her final product is about socialism & democratic ideas. She does not come across with genuine real caring about the American people and it’s obvious. She just likes to keep all pots stirred at all times to work against the President!

  3. I can’t wait till we take over the house and we take back the presidency or keep the presidency rather and show these Democrats that they stink

    1. It’s hard for me to understand the American people has put up with these lying cheating Democrats for so long and I really believe they had a hand in the cov- 19
      to hurt Trump. Just to much has gone down.

  6. Throw Pelosi out and get someone with a brain and an ounce of integrity. She has reduced the House to a laughing stock of lemmings afraid to oppose this pantywaist with not a ounce of integrity. Her only goal is to get rid of Trump, make sure heโ€™s not re-elected as opposed to making new laws that can help the country. She is an abject failure and should suffer greatly when someone writes her epitaph and total failure as speaker.

  7. People need to look who is supporting her and paying her to destroy our country! Obama,Hillary,Warren, waters,push her but George Soros pays her and that is her main object , money,money!!

  8. Democrats have ONE goal in mind: take away ALL guns, tear down t Constitution, take over America completely, turn America into a country where they have TOTAL rule over ALL aspects of our life, where WE are THEIR slaves/puppets, in short, socialism, communism, totalitarian all wrapped into one bundle. It has started already. Government says wear masks, we comply, now talk of American women being forced to wear a head cover to make Islam women ore comfortable. How far will we comply?. Once democrats see how far we will comply they come in a complied country. ALL RUN BY DE OCRATS! Is that what Americans want? I don’t!
