WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) rebuffed objections over the constitutionality of the National Security Agency’s (NSA) spying powers on Monday by allowing the agency to resume the bulk collection of phone records, digital rights group attorney Andrew Crocker told Sputnik.

“[FISC] dismissed the constitutional concerns noted in the past,” Crocker, a Staff Attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), told Sputnik. “We [EFF] still very much think that the bulk collection of phone records, even if it’s going on for another six months, is unconstitutional and has been unconstitutional the whole time.”
