Although somewhat controversial when it was last renewed…it wasn’t when it was originally implemented as part of the Patriot Act…so why would the Trump regime shut it down?
The National Security Agency has quietly discontinued a controversial program put in place after the September 11 terrorist attacks that collected and analyzed millions of Americans’ domestic calls and texts, according to a senior Republican congressional aide.
The NSA hasn’t used the system in months, and the Trump administration might not seek to renew its legal authority, Luke Murray, the national security advisor for House minority leader Kevin McCarty (R-Calif.), said in a podcast Saturday.
I really hate to be a conspiracy theorist…but this doesn’t make much sense to me…the Republicans were really supportive of this program…why would Trump’s NSA stop spying? It is after all, what they do.
