The CLOUD Act got passed a couple of years ago by being bundled with the government funding bill, much to the chagrin of civil liberties advocates.

The U.S. has been making deals with the U.K. and Australia lately which allow their police to request data from U.S. companies, including for things which are not illegal in both countries (PI has an article on this which I currently cannot locate), but are in one, and with looser standards than would normally be allowed in the U.S. (requiring narrowly tailored warrants).

I don't really trust Australia with these sorts of powers as they have already used recently passed anti-encryption powers to harass journalists who speak critically about the government.
