It’s been a tumultuous time for the Trump presidency.
It has seen the administration introduce an unprecedented number of laws that have expanded its powers, from the sweeping surveillance powers in the Patriot Act, to the so-called “drone” programs and the so‑called “national security letters” that allow the government to obtain private information.
It’s also seen the Department of Justice and the Department for Homeland Security begin an effort to roll back the rules of engagement and to weaken the power of the National Security Letters.
But in a way, these are just the normal changes that come with new administrations.
A few weeks ago, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that gives him a power he has used to push through some of his most extreme proposals.
That executive order, titled the USA Freedom Act, would give the government wide latitude in collecting and storing information on Americans.
This is one of the more controversial aspects of the bill.
The new order, which was signed Tuesday by Trump, would require the government’s national security letters, which require Americans to turn over their phone records and financial information, to be renewed by the end of 2019.
That would allow the Trump Administration to collect the information, along with the contents of all communications within the United States, for up to one year.
Under the law, the government would be able to demand phone records from any person who has not committed a crime or was not the subject of an investigation.
If the information was “relevant” to a criminal investigation, it could be used against them, the Trump Executive Order says.
It would also allow the NSA to ask the government for any records that could be tied to terrorism or terrorism-related threats.
The government would have to give the person a chance to respond, but would not be able, for example, to demand records from a political opponent.
The Trump Executive order is also a step toward loosening the restrictions on the NSA and the FBI, as well as the Department, under the USA FREEDOM Act.
The USA FREES Act would also give the Attorney General the authority to create a Privacy Impact Assessment for the executive order.
In this case, the DOJ is going to ask Congress for $25 million to help fund a Privacy Assessment, and it would be used to set up an advisory committee to advise the president on how best to address privacy issues.
The bill also would expand the scope of the Patriot Acts, which have come under renewed scrutiny.
It extends the statute’s protections to include the ability for the government and law enforcement to request phone records to keep the information confidential.
And it extends the power to the President to issue a subpoena to the phone companies for records about phone calls made by a target.
But, in order to get this information, the administration is also required to obtain court approval.
That process has proven a little cumbersome, and the DOJ and the Attorney Generals Office have both been pushing back on the process.
In fact, it’s the first time in the history of the USA PATRIOT Act that the DOJ has actually gone into court and tried to block the order, instead of simply using the courts.
“We are not going to go through the process of trying to block it,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a press conference.
“This is not going into the courts, this is not a new thing, this does not require the courts.”
It’s a very different approach to the Patriot acts, which are supposed to be used for national security purposes.
The Patriot Act was passed in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks to protect Americans from terrorists, and has since expanded into various other aspects of American life, from privacy to data mining.
The FBI has been conducting mass surveillance on US citizens for decades.
But there’s been criticism of the government over how it’s used, particularly over the past decade or so.
A 2012 report by the American Civil Liberties Union found that the FBI has used a range of powers under the Patriot laws to spy on US residents.
And the NSA has been accused of abusing its power by spying on journalists and activists.
In the last few years, the NSA, CIA, FBI, and FBI Departments have all been involved in massive surveillance programs.
One example is the PRISM program, which lets the government access millions of phone records without a warrant.
It was launched in 2008 under the Bush administration, and began to expand under the Obama administration.
But PRISM was shut down by the Supreme Court in 2016, and since then, the programs have largely stopped.
It is still technically allowed under the US Constitution, and can still be used by the government, but the programs are overseen by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), which is an independent body of judges.
The US government has long said that it can’t be forced to comply with PRISM, which would give it the ability to obtain the data without a court order.
The President’s executive order also expands the scope and power of surveillance powers.
Under this order, the Government can ask
