Section 702

In short, the authorities are trying to run out the clock on the request and many people suspect it's because if the true number of US citizens whose personal information has been seized and stored was released, it would completely undermine law enforcement's position and could even see the end of Section 702.

Sounds like the House/Congress should just inform them that unless the numbers are provided by <insert reasonable date here>, Section 702 will be canned.
