NSA can search US Emails through a backdoor

  • NSA can go through Americans' emails without needing a warrant by using a secret "backdoor", which happens to be legal. 

    This information comes from Edward Snowden and has been confirmed by NSA critic Ron Wyden. 

    "A gap in the law that I call the 'backdoor searches loophole' allows the government to potentially go through these communications and conduct warrantless searches for the phone calls or emails of law-abiding Americans," Wyden said. 

    According to Snowden, the process requires an oversight but its not clear that this oversight has yet been implemented.
