Representatives Threaten to Subpoena NSA Documents

Last week, Congressional representatives threatened to subpoena information regarding the NSA's illegal domestic spying program. The Administration has repeatedly refused to comply with requests for documents including the President's orders authorizing the program and legal opinions related to it. It's long past time that Congress issued subpoenas and forced the Administration's hand.

EFF is also working through the courts to uncover the truth about the secret program and stop the illegal spying. Alongside our case against AT&T, we separately sued the Department of Justice under the Freedom of Information Act demanding records about secret new court orders that the President announced [PDF] in January. We filed this brief [PDF] in the case last week.
