FBI hiring outside contractor to overhaul use of FISA spying tool
UPDATED 3:35 PM PT – Friday, October 30, 2020
Companies reportedly had until this week to bid on a contract, but critics have questioned the move over concerns sensitive data could be leaked while working with an outside contractor.
This came after the agency came under scrutiny over errors it made while wire-tapping former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
The Bureau was looking to examine Page over alleged links to possible Russian interference in the 2016 election.
