Intelligence community has 'assets'. They can use these assets to look up your past voice calls (digital communications). They can RE-LISTEN to past phone calls.. wow
"CLEMENTE: Well, on the national security side of the house, in the federal government, you know, we have assets. There are lots of assets at our disposal throughout the intelligence community and also not just domestically but overseas. Those assets allow us to gain information intelligence on things that we can't use ordinarily in a criminal investigation, but are used for major terrorism investigations or counter intelligence investigations."
"COSTELLO: You're not talking about voicemail, right? What are you talking about exactly?
CLEMENTE: I'm talking about all digital communications are -- there's a way to look at digital communications in the past. I can't go into detail of how that's done or what's done. But I can tell you that no digital communication is secure. So these communications will be found out. The conversation will be known.
It is just a question of whether or not Katherine Russell decides to own up to what was said prior to that information being known or after the fact.

Not so much data really. What did you imagine the data center in Utah is all about? If it moves over fiber it gets stored because it is digital. My understanding is the gov believes it is not illegal search unless it gets looked at without a warrant..

I get it. txt and internet are one thing. But what was said over the phone? Are they just recording everyone everywhere?? That's a ridiculuous amount of data..

It's not really surprising. I'm not really bothered by it either considering I'm not a criminal.
"It is nearly within our grasp to computer on all human generated information"
"You are aware of the fact that somebody can know where you are at all times, because you carry a mobile device, even if that mobile device is turned off," he said. "You know this, I hope? Yes? Well, you should."
