The U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruled the electronic surveillance activities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and citizens' Fourth Amendment rights, The Wall Street Journal reports. The court found improper FBI searches conducted in 2017 and 2018 and determined the large amount of data examined by the FBI ran against FISA and the right to prohibit unreasonable searches and seizures. The ruling was made in October 2018; however, it was only made public after the FBI lost an appeal on the ruling. Meanwhile, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released documents related to the court’s approval of 2018 Certifications under Section 702 of FISA.
