Proposal Would Allow U.S. Government to Seize, Destroy Any Drone

The Trump administration is asking Congress to give the federal government sweeping powers to track, hack and destroy any type of drone over domestic soil with a new exception to laws governing surveillance, computer privacy and aircraft protection, according to a document obtained by The New York Times. The document is a 10-page draft and summary of legislation the executive branch circulated among several congressional committees, according to a congressional aide.
