William Barr, President Trump's latest nominee for Attorney General, was an architect of the modern surveillance state.

As AG in '92, Barr approved a DEA surveillance program to collect records of all US phone calls to a long list of foreign countries. The "collect it all" approach laid the groundwork for the NSA's mass phone record surveillance program revealed by Edward Snowden:

Although much of the program architected by Barr was deemed illegal by the Justice Department, it continued for decades. In 2015, we sued to stop to make sure the program had ceased and its records were destroyed:
