Not without court order. That's what FISA is. They did this with "emergency" orders. A lot of what went on in the immediate aftermath was questionable and justify it by saying that the situation was "unprecedented" but I don't see a whole lot of work to justify any of it legally in retrospect either.

Revealed at yesterday's Congressional Hearing. The FBI (Christopher Wray) knew the Jan 6th Capitol attack was being planned in mid-December. He informed NO ONE. (That we are aware of)

It's almost like they knew ahead of time what they were told to do !!
Very suspicious and reeks of a setup coming 😃🎩
They don't buy it. Your ISP and your cellular service gladly provide that information on you daily. Not metadata either ... everything you do, everywhere you go, everything they can record. You think Facebook tattles? Twitter? They ain't got squat on your ISP. Not a US citizen (and even if you are) ... don't worry ... the five eyes have that covered too.

Apparently, they are able to buy data from private companies about their customers, which allows the government to legally avoid warrants and the like.
