NSA Spied On 534 Million US Calls In 2017

The NSA collected “call detail records” from over 500 million Americans’ phone calls in 2017, over three times the number gathered in 2016 according to a new report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

This marks the second year of reporting following the passage of the 2015 USA FREEDOM Act – which requires that the DNI make public various search terms and surveillance statistics of collected “Call Detail Records,” in an Annual Statistical Transparency Report meant to limit the bulk collection of records.
