Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats calls this foreign intelligence the "holy grail" that provides insight into the thinking and actions of USA adversaries.

This week Congress is getting ready to vote to reauthorize FISA 702.
Before the vote, President Donald Trump sent conflicting tweets on his support for the bill - suggesting it may have resulted in spying at Trump Tower during the 2016 election - though he ultimately backed its renewal.

"Section 702 is a critical tool that the intelligence community uses properly to target a non-U.S. person outside of the united states that is vital to USA security", Rep. Fitzpatrick (R-Pennsylvania-8) said. The law must be changed to account for this, and future presidents.
