Report: Government Scooping Up Verizon Phone Records

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

A British newspaper says the communication records of millions of U.S. citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk, regardless of whether they were suspected of any wrongdoing.

Britain's Guardian newspaper says it's obtained the copy of an order from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that orders Verizon to provide the National Security Agency with telephone records of its customers.

The order is good until July 19.
