Quora question: Does the NSA still do mass surveillance on Americans in 2017?

My response:  You may have forgotten that in President Obama’s final days in office, he “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.”(1)

In other words, more government agencies now have the power to search through the raw data still collected by NSA.
