2. Jake Appelbaum, victim of the Surveillance State confronts FBI's deputy general counsel

"How am I supposed to go to a judge if the third party is gagged...?"

Basically the secret subpoenas allow the government to force third party holders of our private information to hand over our data to the FBI. As we've written about here, the third party content holders that receive NSLs could include doctors and even mental health professionals like therapists and social workers.

In April 2012 Appelbaum told a Democracy Now Exposť (see External links below) that "I donít have important conversations in the United States anymore. I donít have conversations in bed with my partner anymore." He said that his being targeted creates a threat for those he wants to help and therefore makes him "less effective" in his work for the Tor Project.
