WASHINGTON (AP) — A secret intelligence court has decided to continue an order that forces Verizon Communications to turn over hundreds of millions of telephone records to the government each day in its search for foreign terror or espionage suspects.
The longstanding Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court order must be renewed every three months. It had been set to expire Friday.
National Intelligence Director James Clapper announced the new order.
