Newly Declassified Documents

Today, the ODNI, in consultation with the Department of Justice (DOJ), is releasing additional FISA Section 702 documents regarding the 2011 certification documents and adding those documents to a related prior post:

DNI Declassifies Intelligence Community Documents Regarding Collection Under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) – Wednesday, August 21, 2013

From time to time we are able to update older posts on IC on the Record with newly declassified information. When we do so, we always note the addition in the original post (in this case, marked as “added September 12, 2017″) as well as create a new blog entry to direct you to the freshly released information.

Today’s documents were released pursuant to a Freedom of Information (FOIA) case filed in the U.S. District Court, Southern District New York, NYT/Savage v. the DOJ. We previously posted other 2011 Section 702 certification documents pursuant to this NYT/Savage FOIA case on June 19, 2017, in the same post noted above. Today’s release concerning the 2011 certifications include additional orders by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), government motion, responses, and notices, and a transcript of the September 2011 FISC hearing.
