THIS HEARING SEGMENT BEFORE THE US SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE IS EXCELLENT. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR LEGAL SCHOLARS AND INTELLIGENCE PROFESSIONALS WORKING IN ALL AGENCIES OF US GOVERNMENT.

IT IS HIGH POWERED AND MUCH LIKE A DISSERTATION AND LEGAL ANALYSIS OF FOURTH AMENDMENT APPLICABLITIES WITHIN THE MORASS THE COUNTRY FINDS ITSELF IN THE POST SNOWDEN, NSA REVELATIONS ERA.

THE QUESTIONS POSED BY SEN. SHELDON WHITEHOUSE ARE SOME OF THE MOST RELEVANT AND PRESSING OF OUR TIME. FEATURED IN THE PANEL ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE SCHOLARS.

Prior to joining Georgetown Law in November 2011, she spent her career as a practicing
national security lawyer in the Executive Branch. In 2009, she served as Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General for National Security at the United States Department of Justice, where she co-chaired an interagency group created by the Director of Na
tional Intelligence (DNI) to improve FISA processes.

From 2007 -2009, she served in a joint duty capacity as a Senior Associate General
Counsel at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, where she worked behind the scenes on matters relating to the legislative efforts that resulted in the FISA Amendments Act of 2008. Once that law was passed, she was involved in many aspects of implementing the FISA Amendments Act, as well as standing up the internal executive branch interagency oversight structure. Prior to her tour at ODNI, she served for several years as an attorney in the office now called the Office of Intelligence, which is part of the National Security Division at the Department of Justice, and appeared frequently before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC).
