Legal experts told The Intercept they were shocked to learn about the scale of the ICREACH system and are concerned that law enforcement authorities might use it for domestic investigations that are not related to terrorism.

"To me, this is extremely troublesome," said Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the Liberty and National Security Program at the New York University School of Law's Brennan Center for Justice. "The myth that metadata is just a bunch of numbers and is not as revealing as actual communications content was exploded long ago-this is a trove of incredibly sensitive information."

Brian Owsley, a federal magistrate judge between 2005 and 2013, said he was alarmed that traditional law enforcement agencies such as the FBI and the DEA were among those with access to the NSA's surveillance troves.

"This is not something that I think the government should be doing," said Owsley, an assistant professor of law at Indiana Tech Law School. "Perhaps if information is useful in a specific case, they can get judicial authority to provide it to another agency. But there shouldn't be this buddy-buddy system back-and-forth."
