The National Security Agency (NSA) collected over 151 million phone records of Americans in 2016, despite a new system created by the US Congress to limit the spy agency’s ability to gather bulk data, a report released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) revealed on 2 May. The government report detailed that the NSA amassed vast amounts of data under a new system, despite having been court ordered to only use the system to apprehend 42 terrorism suspects in 2016.
