Rep Gerrold Nadler questioned FBI Director Nadler this week about the NSA surveillance programs. Nadler asked Mueller if a warrant is needed to get the content of a phone number. Mueller said a national security letter is needed to get subscriber info and a FISA warrant is needed to get content. Nadler said he was told the exact opposite. At a closed door secure briefing Nadler was told that an analysts can decide when to get the content of a phone number. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, disclosed this week that during a secret briefing to members of Congress, he was told that the contents of a phone call could be accessed "simply based on an analyst deciding that."
If the NSA wants "to listen to the phone," an analyst's decision is sufficient, without any other legal authorization required, Nadler said he learned. "I was rather startled," said Nadler, an attorney who serves on the House Judiciary committee.
