NSA moves to share data with domestic law enforcement

The HillThe NSA has yet to publicly announce the change, but The New York Times reported last month that the administration was poised to expand the agency's ability to share information that it picks up about people’s communications with other intelligence agencies.

The modification would open the door for the NSA to give the FBI and other federal agencies uncensored communications of foreigners and Americans picked up incidentally — but without a warrant — during sweeps.

Is it a coincidence that this is being done in an election year? I doubt it. There's all sorts of useful information the White House would love to review for blackmail purposes even if it doesn't involve criminal behavior. And how are they going to know that it doesn't involve criminal behavior unless they look?
