The FBI is seeking authority to file warrants that are vague, secretive, patently unconstitutional and potentially crippling to security.

At least that’s what civil liberties advocates and computer scientists told a little-known regulatory committee at a Wednesday meeting.

The FBI wants to get warrants to search mobile devices, even if law enforcement officials can’t physically locate the device. It’s also seeking the ability to file one warrant to search an entire network that might be located in multiple jurisdictions.
