Sanders MIA For Key Vote

On Thursday, the Senate took up a key bill to reauthorize domestic surveillance programs while making changes to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

One of the amendments would have required authorities to obtain a warrant to access internet usersโ€™ search histories and browsing information.

The amendment failed with 59 yeas to 37 nays.

The bill was one vote short of the 60-vote threshold it needed to overcome the filibuster.

Bernie Sanders was conspicuously absent and did not vote.
