One day after The Guardian (in the United Kingdom) reported Verizon was under court order to turn over phone records from United States customers to the National Security Agency, the Wall Street Journal has added fuel to the fire with their own expose.

Thursday evening, the WSJ reported that in addition to Verizon, AT&T and Sprint-Nextel are also turning over data and customer phone-call records to the NSA.

According to the WSJ report, the NSA’s efforts have become institutionalized.

One of the elected officials who spoke to the WSJ was Senator Harry Reid (pictured). “Everyone should just calm down and understand this isn’t anything that is brand new,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nevada).

Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz gave KFYO’s Chad Hasty his thoughts on the emerging Verizon-NSA scandal on Thursday, “It’s certainly troubling. We need to wait and see exactly what the facts are and what exactly they are doing. It is part of a pattern from this [Obama] administration not respecting the bill of rights or the constitution,” said Sen. Cruz.
