The US Government Just Destroyed Our Privacy While Nobody Was Paying Attention

The CLOUD Act will also allow the U.S. to enter into agreements that allow the transfer of private data from domestic servers to investigators in other countries on a case-by-case basis, further globalizing the ever-encroaching surveillance state.
