Edward Snowden exposed the NSA Spy program on American Citizens that was partly responsible for the FBI’s investigation of Political Opponents that was ordered by Hillary and Bill Clinton. The subsequent discovery of the illegal files in Hillary’s bedroom at the White House was named “Filegate” and that will be used by Citizens against her campaign to be President.

Hillary had the FBI investigate the innocent White House Travel Office which became “Travelgate”.

Snowden revealed that until the articles were published, the journalists working with him would also be at mortal risk from the United States Intelligence Community. Herbert Hoover used illegal FBI investigations against political opponents including against his investigation of Marilyn Monroe’s connections to Robert and John Kennedy. Wikipedia reported that Herbert Hoover ” used the FBI to harass political dissenters and activists, to amass secret files on political leaders,[2] and to collect evidence using illegal methods.” What’s the difference between the FBI and the KGB who did the identical type of spying on people including regular, innocent citizens?

Hoover was hired by the Justice Department to work in the War Emergency Division. He soon became the head of the Division’s Alien Enemy Bureau, authorized by President Wilson at the beginning of World War I to arrest and jail people inside America without trial.[11] Hoover investigated without warrants Supreme Court justice Felix Frankfurter who, Hoover maintained, was “the most dangerous man in the United States”.

But illegal investigations continued long after Hoover. “In a 289-page report, the inspector general also reveals that the Obama administration, the FBI and telecom companies collaborated to routinely violate federal wiretapping laws for four years, as agents got access to reporters’ and citizens’ phone records using fake emergency declarations.” Americans hope the Trump victory will break up the illegal spy operations against American Citizens who feel betrayed by purposeful lack of oversight and the un-constitutional spying by the government.

Telecom suppliers were supposed to be responding to National Security Letters, which are essentially FBI-issued subpoenas. But those Patriot Act powers say the target must be part of an open investigation and that a supervisor has to approve it. While they require some paperwork, FBI agents have been issuing about 40,000 such NSLs a year, avoiding the need to get a warrant in advance of a search. The inspector general reported that an audit estimated more than 3,500 off-the-book requests for telephone data occurred from 2003 to 2007. FBI agents also used the illegal exigent letters in a leak investigation to get records on more than 1,500 calls by Washington Post and New York Times reporters. Spying on the Press is a favorite tactic of the KGB, the FBI and the NSA.

The Obama administration retroactively legalized the entire fiasco through a secret ruling from the Office of Legal Counsel nearly two weeks ago.

That’s the same office from which John Yoo blessed President George W. Bush’s torture techniques and warrantless wiretapping of Americans’ communications that crossed the border.

Judge Andrew Napolitano reported: “It was surprising, however, when the FBI was forced to admit last week that in the 1980s and 1990s, its agents and lab technicians who examined hair samples testified falsely in 257 of 268 cases that resulted in convictions. Of the convictions, 18 people were sentenced to death, and of those, 12 have been executed.”

In 2010 A federal judge ruled the National Security Agency’s program of surveillance without warrants was illegal, rejecting the Obama administration’s
effort to keep shrouded in secrecy one of the most disputed counterterrorism policies of former President George W. Bush.

But since Mr. Obama took office, the N.S.A. has sometimes violated the limits imposed on spying on Americans by the new FISA law. The administration has acknowledged the lapses but said they had been corrected. The question is whay were they done in the first place? /span>
