The secret court that oversees the nation's intelligence activities renewed its approval of the National Security Agency's telephone-records program on Friday, granting the government a new three-month window to collect data on all Americans' phone calls.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's office announced the court's ruling in a statement, though officials didn't make the ruling itself public, saying it was going through declassification procedures.
