The administration wants to add just four words -- "electronic
  communication transactional records" -- to a list of items that the
  law says the FBI may demand without a judge's approval. Government

Would that really make that much of a difference? In Germany,
at least, the so-called "judge's approval" often isn't worth
a penny, esp. wrt. phone surveillance. It simply is way too
easy to get such an approval, even afterwards.
