In a blog post, ACLU National Security Project Staff Attorney Ashley Gorski discusses a Freedom of Information Act request filed by the advocacy organization to obtain a "crucial" report created by the U.S. Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. "Despite requests from a senator and the European Union," she writes, "the Trump administration is refusing to make public an important report" by the PCLOB on how the U.S. government processed information collected by its surveillance programs. Specifically, the ACLU is seeking a report on the Obama administration's implementation of its 2014 policy directive on government surveillance. Notably, the EU has said "disclosure of the report is important" for its annual review of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework.
