FBI Improperly Surveilled American Citizens
The FBI has been caught in the act of improperly surveilling American citizens repeatedly in 2020 and 2021. An unsealed Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court filing revealed that improper surveillance was conducted a staggering 278,000 times, according to the New York Post .
Who Were Under Surveillance?
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio expressed his disappointment in FBI Director Christopher Wray’s response to the situation. “He told us we can sleep well at night because of the FBI’s so-called FISA reforms. But it just keeps getting worse,” according to The Washington Post .
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released the report on Friday, according to The Hill . The FBI maintains a database of searchable intelligence, but under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, there must be a foreign intelligence purpose to conduct a search, or the FBI must be seeking evidence of a crime, according to Fox News .
Fox reported that the FBI promised to do better, according to an unnamed senior FBI official. “As Director Wray has made clear, the errors described in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court’s opinion are completely unacceptable. As a result of the audits that revealed these instances of noncompliance, the FBI changed its querying procedures to make sure these errors do not happen again,” the official said.
