Pelosi Cancels FISA Bill Vote After Trump Pledges to VETO It Immediately


85 views

Well, that didn't last long…

Though the FISA Bill was expected to pass the House floor, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has CANCELED the vote.

Why?

President Trump threatened to veto it immediately.

Key parts of the federal surveillance program known as FISA would have been re-authorized, but the bill was met with huge resistance from Republicans and even progressive Democrats.

President Trump himself tweeted about the bill and pledged to VETO it immediately, writing:

If the FISA Bill is passed tonight on the House floor, I will quickly VETO it. Our Country has just suffered through the greatest political crime in its history. The massive abuse of FISA was a big part of it.

His tweet received over 100,000 likes in less than 3 hours.
