Donald Trump shut down the Deep State with one tweet
The Deep State is real.
Despite fake news spread by so-called “mainstream” media, government agencies illegally spy on American citizens.
And Donald Trump reacted to one bombshell by crushing the Deep State with this tweet.
Americans were horrified to learn that the National Security Agency deleted 685 million phone and text message records that were collected since 2015.
The Associated Press reports:
The National Security Agency said Thursday it is deleting call records after “irregularities” caused it to collect records it was not authorized to receive.
The agency released a statement saying it began deleting records in May after “analysts noted technical irregularities in some data received from telecommunications service providers.”
The records date back to 2015 and were obtained under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
The statement added that “the root cause of the problem has since been addressed” for future call record collecting.
The NSA blamed a technical glitch, but critics believe the spying was done on purpose and the NSA only purged the records when caught.
President Trump reacted to this news by calling what the NSA did a disgrace and an attack on Americans’ privacy.
Wow! The NSA has deleted 685 million phone calls and text messages. Privacy violations? They blame technical irregularities. Such a disgrace. The Witch Hunt continues!
