Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) is facing accusations that he is contributing to the death of the Constitution following his tie-breaking vote against requiring warrants for searches of Americans’ communications.

The House on Friday passed a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) extension. According to Political Intel, Fisa is a highly controversial surveillance law meant to target U.S. foreign adversaries. However, the FBI has used the law to target Americans, including during the 2016 election, when it was used to spy on Trump’s campaign.

However, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) had proposed an earlier amendment to the bill. Biggs’ amendment sought to attach a warrant requirement to FISA. Breitbart News revealed that Johnson cast the tie-breaking vote that killed Biggs’ amendment.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) lamented Johnson’s decision to vote against Biggs’ amendment in an X post.

“This is how the Constitution dies. By a tie vote, the amendment to require a warrant to spy on Americans goes down in flames,” Massie wrote. “This is a sad day for America. The Speaker doesn’t always vote in the House, but he was the tiebreaker today. He voted against warrants.”

President Joe Biden’s administration lobbied lawmakers from both parties against the warrant requirement. Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) revealed that both parties’ leadership worked to ensure Biden got his wish.

“You saw the leadership of both parties holding back votes to make sure that the amendment failed,” Mace said. “You saw this race to the well at the end there to make sure that the Biden Administration won the vote, and you saw Joe Biden’s White House whipping votes on the Democrat side to make sure that the Biggs amendment wouldn’t go through.

Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX), in a written statement after the vote, said passing FISA in its current form represents a sad day for America.

“Today is a dark day for America,” Nehls said. “It is no secret that the DOJ and the FBI have used and abused FISA to spy on not only the greatest president of my lifetime, Donald J. Trump, but spy on everyday Americans. I could not, in good conscience, vote to give our nation’s weaponized DOJ the power to mass surveil the American people without significant reforms, such as a warrant requirement.”

With the bill set for the FISA’s extension set to go before the Senate in the coming weeks, Mace says he expects the House to get another attempt at making things right.

“If they amend one word of it, and they probably can’t help themselves, it will come back here for a vote,” said Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) of the FISA extension, “so we may get another bite at this apple.”
