I am going to start a thread devoted to trying to list all the U.S. federal laws that have been passed whose wording could be a violation of the country's Constitution. Most people have no idea all these laws are on the books, hopefully this should start an interesting discussion. To start off with, the Intelligence Identities Protection Act (1982), 50 U.S.C. § 421 " 421(c) Disclosure of information by persons in course of pattern of activities intended to identify and expose covert agents. Whoever, in the course of a pattern of activities intended to identify and expose covert agents and with reason to believe that such activities would impair or impede the foreign intelligence activities of the United States, discloses any information that identifies an individual as a covert agent to any individual not authorized to receive classified information, knowing that the information disclosed so identifies such individual and that the United States is taking affirmative measures to conceal such individuals classified intelligence relationship to the United States, shall be fined under Title 18 or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. " Potential First Amendment violation to freedom of the press.
