Mulvaney won't fire official who sued him MORE (R-Mich.), imposing restrictions created to protect Americans who are swept up in government spying on foreigners overseas will also get a vote. A proposed amendment to Section 702 to require authorities to obtain court warrants failed 233-183 with support from libertarians and privacy advocates.

"We do not think that there was a conflict at all", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

Trump's first tweet on the topic appeared to encourage lawmakers to support limiting the law.

"This vote is about foreign surveillance of foreign bad guys on foreign land", Trump said in his second morning tweet on the matter.

The key votes in support of the GOP House leadership effort came from Democrats, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-CA).
