Has the government been keeping track of your phone calls? CNN's Brooke Baldwin explains how this is legal.
So the spying is ONLY targeting "non-US persons" and the information collected is ONLY "metadata." The question is then, how do the NSA, FBI and the rest of the government connect the two dots? How would those entities determine whether the metadata was mined from non-US persons?
