Major amendment to FISA renewal fails in tied vote, renewal passes

An amendment to the FISA surveillance bill – requiring federal law enforcement to obtain a warrant before wiretapping transnational criminals on the off-chance they’d be communicating with American citizens – pushed by white nationalist Congressman Andy Biggs and Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal failed Friday on a tied 212 to 212 vote with both parties split.

And if we’re missing some crucial details to that please forgive us because the whole thing’s complicated as fuck. All we understand of FISA is that the MAGA assholes hate it because that’s how the 2016 Trump Campaign’s collusion with Russia was exposed. We’re not sure if that’s a reason to be affirmatively for it either, but we’re going to lean towards no since the lefties horseshoed into agreement with the Freedom Caucasian types on it like this is Fahrenheit 9/11 and all the traitors and fifth columnists are imaginary. Russian, ChiCom, etc scumbags seeking to undermine American democracy should not be given the benefit of due process under any circumstances.

UPDATE 4/12/2024 12:53 PM EDT: The main FISA renewal through 2026 passed by a decent margin, at least 268 to 143 as of this writing, and the House chamber then quickly emptied out.
