WASHINGTON, June 18 (Reuters) - The counsel for the Office of Director of National Intelligence, which oversees U.S. intelligence agencies, said on Tuesday that more opinions of a secret court that issues warrants for surveillance cases would likely be declassified.
Lawmakers at a House of Representatives Intelligence Committee hearing on top-secret National Security Agency spying programs that have been made public pressed for the declassification of more Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court opinions.
'Yes, I think that's probably what we'll do,' Robert Litt, general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said.
