Once again, the FBI has been caught red-handed breaking the law and violating the Constitution of the United States, by spying on Americans to uncover ‘right-wing domestic extremists.’
A heavily redacted FISA report was declassified and released to the public on Monday, revealing that the FBI disobeyed FISA court-ordered warrants to search National Security Agency intelligence for ‘right-wing domestic extremists,’ despite being informed that such an act would be a violation of the 4th Amendment.
The report, released by FISA, revealed that at least seven FBI offices were guilty of these violations after the presiding FISA judge James Boasberg stated that he had uncovered ‘apparent widespread violations of the querying standard.’
It is believed that an analyst employed by the FBI had conducted a scan of NSA communications to search for a ‘connection with predicated criminal investigations relating to domestic terrorism.’
The report states that the FBI was cautioned by federal judges more than once in the past three years, stating that ‘digging’ through NSA communications in order to avoid needing court-ordered warrants was illegal and a direct violation of the 4th Amendment.
Yet, they didn’t care.
Lawbreaking FBI spied on Trump
The intelligence organizations of the United States have a notorious history of lying and law-breaking, yet they are always able to get away with their actions unpunished.
More recently, under the orders of former President Barack Obama, the FBI conducted spying ops on members of the Trump campaign in the lead up to the 2016 election, yet no one involved ever faced the full force of the law.
FBI Lawyer Kevin Clinesmith was only given a mild punishment once the Spygate drama came to a close, whereas John Durham, who was the US attorney leading the investigation, was in the public spotlight as head of the investigation that was to prove the connection between the Russians and former President Trump.
Funny one that.
The NSA often gathers communication information from the American public, which was clearly utilized illegally by the FBI to further their own agenda at the expense of the 4th Amendment.
It is yet to be revealed if any arrests have been as a result of this report.
