Wednesday's HOT MIC

Another must-read today is John Solomon's latest piece in The Hill on Obama-era NSA spying.

The National Security Agency and FBI violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama administration by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts, according to newly declassified memos that provide some of the richest detail to date on the spy agencies’ ability to obey their own rules.

The memos reviewed by The Hill were publicly released on July 11 through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Solomon, who is now executive vice president of The Hill and chief operating officer for Circa News, appeared with Circa's Sara Carter on Hannity last night to talk about the privacy violations.
