The U.S. National Security Agency has shut down a system designed to analyze logs of U.S. citizens’ calls and texts, The New York Times reports. The Republican House Minority Leader National Security Adviser Luke Murry said the Trump administration may not ask Congress to renew the program when it expires at the end of the year. The NSA system was initially created to track terrorist suspects after the Sept. 11 attacks. Meanwhile, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence announced it plans to proactively release its Semiannual Assessment of Compliance with Procedures and Guidelines Issued Pursuant to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
