The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has routinely accessed an AT&T database of Americans’ phone records spanning over 25 years, according to a newly-published 27-page PowerPoint presentation.
This comes after it was revealed that the DEA has used NSA surveillance to investigate Americans and that the NSA has collected all U.S. phone records from Verizon.
The DEA practice, known as the “Hemisphere Project” reportedly involved a tight-knit relationship between the agency and the company.
The government reportedly paid AT&T employees to give DEA agents phone data ranging all the way back to 1987, according to the The New York Times, as part of a relationship that began in 2007.
