The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board held a public hearing Monday in Washington, D.C. to take into consideration changes to both the Patriot Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. At the hearing, former Justice Department intelligence official James Baker called the FISA Court a "national treasure." There was also vocal resistance against current surveillance policies from lawyers representing large tech companies. RT's Ameera David speaks with Hemanshu Nigam, founder of privacy advisory firm SSP Blue, about the role the PCLOB might play going forward.
