According to the Salt Lake Tribune:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is giving significant new powers to its roughly 14,000 agents — allowing them more leeway to search databases, go through household trash or use surveillance teams to scrutinize the lives of people who have attracted their attention.
 Regardless of whether this is a good thing or not, I'm quite sure of one thing: If this had been announced during the Bush administration, the liberal outcry would be deafening. For many on the Left, the important criteria is not whether an idea or action is right, or Constitutional, or good for society, but whether it helps those on the Left obtain or maintain power.
