BREAKING: F.B.I. In HOT WATER After What Was Just Discovered

Declassified memos show FBI illegally shared spy data on Americans with private parties…

Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS – 

Just prior to being fired by President Trump, former-FBI director James Comey told lawmakers under during congressional testimony that his agency did not use sensitive espionage data gathered about Americans without a warrant only when it was “lawfully collected, carefully overseen and checked.” As far as I am aware and understand it, this is perjury on top of everything else because U.S. intelligence community memos formerly marked classified reveal a much different scenario.  These memos show a flagrant disregard for the rules, inadequate training, little to no oversight,  and even one case of deliberately sharing spy data with unauthorized parties.

The behavior in question that the FBI admitted to before a FISA judge just last month ranged from illegally sharing raw intelligence with unauthorized third parties to accessing intercepted attorney-client privileged communications without proper oversight the bureau promised was in place years ago. Not only is the behavior alarming in the extreme, the oversights they have claimed for years that are there ARE NOT, and the FISA court judge states IN THE RULING that they fear the violations are FAR MORE EXTENSIVE than already disclosed.

The ruling from April 2017 states –

 “The Court is nonetheless concerned about the FBI’s apparent disregard of minimization rules and whether the FBI is engaging in similar disclosures of raw Section 702 information that have not been reported.”

LADIES AND GENTLEMAN IT IS NOT PARANOIA WHEN YOU ARE RIGHT!!

Apparently, other oversight bodies have noticed as well that when it comes to reigning in its own, policing its own behavior, and self-disclosing mistakes, the FBI falls FAR short – read that as NONEXISTANT!!

In a declassified report from 2015, the Justice Department inspector general’s office shows that concerns existed back in 2012 that ‘deficient” reports were being submitted by the FBI indicating that it had a clean record for complying with spy data gathered on Americans without a warrant.

The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides, “[t]he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” and normally the FBI is forbidden under this protection (in theory) from surveilling an American without a warrant. However, Section 702 of the Foreign Surveillance Act, last updated by Congress in 2008, allows another alphabet agency to trample your freedoms, namely the NSA.  The NSA is allowed to share with the FBI spy data collected without a warrant that includes the communications of Americans with “foreign targets” and of course compliance problems began just months after Section 702 was implemented back in 2009.

The declassified report revealed –

We found several instances in which the FBI acquired communications on the same day that the NSA determined through analysis of intercepted communications that the person was in the United States.”

In government speak they call that “deficient” in the real world they call that “cooking the books” or LYING!

Many fear this calls into question the bureau’s integrity as an agency and ability to police itself when it comes to protecting Americans’ privacy 17 years after the war on terror began. That doubt screams amongst libertarians and is continuing to gain traction among conservatives and Republicans as more is revealed about the blatant trampling of the American Constitutional rights. Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act – is up for renewal later this year.

One of the biggest concerns involves so-called backdoor searches in which the FBI can mine NSA intercept data for information that may have been incidentally collected about an American. No warrant or court approval is required, and the FBI insists these searches are one of the most essential tools in combating terrorist plots.

Jeffress’ report reached the conclusion that searches of NSA data now reached FAR beyond national security issues.  They had stepped far beyond the realm of simple “overstepping” the constitutional protections designed to ensure the bureau isn’t violating Americans’ 4th Amendment protections against unlawful search and seizure.

“The FBI procedures allow for really virtually unrestricted querying of the Section 702 data in a way the NSA and CIA have restrained it through their procedures,” she argued before the court in a sealed 2015 proceeding.

“I think that in this case the procedures could be tighter and more restrictive, and should be in order to comply with the Fourth Amendment,” she added.

The court thanked Jeffress for her thoughtful analysis but ultimately rejected her recommendation to impose on the FBI a requirement of creating a written justification why each search would help pursue a national security or criminal matter.

Imagine the audacity of an attorney arguing that a government agency should be working in compliance within the parameters of the 4th amendment…. and the government REJECTED her recommendation to IMPOSE THAT REQUIREMENT UPON THE FBI.

Ladies and gentleman if that doesn’t terrify you? You aren’t paying attention!
