In recent discussions before the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, concerns were raised about the federal government’s surveillance of private financial information, potentially infringing on individual privacy rights. Experts, including author and psychologist Jordan Peterson, highlighted the risks of a collaboration between the government and large corporations that could lead to a severe reduction in personal privacy, drawing parallels to practices observed in countries like China. Additionally, debates surrounding legal frameworks like the Bank Secrecy Act have underscored the need for law reform to protect the Fourth Amendment right to privacy. Voices from both sides of the political spectrum, including Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), agree on the necessity for the government to obtain a warrant for such surveillance, calling for legislative action to safeguard citizen rights against undue surveillance.

Should the government be required to obtain a warrant before surveilling private financial information?
