CRS report on legal authorities for NSA phone records access

Filed under: Intelligence and Info-Sharing,Legal Issues — by Christian Beckner on May 18, 2006

FAS has put a new CRS report up on its site that is directly relevant to the recent stories on the NSA’s collection of domestic telephone records:

RL33424: Government Access to Phone Calling Activity and Related Records: Legal Authorities, May 17, 2006.

As is the CRS’s wont, it doesn’t come to any conclusions, but it does provide a solid backgrounder for people trying to understand the complex legal issues around this story.
