The FBI has been searching NSA records without a warrant, something the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court warned them in 2018 that its queries without a warrant is unconstitutional.
But, let’s face it as long as Christopher Wray is in charge of the FBI, they will continue to break the law because he is not a director, he is a political weapon.
The last three FBI directors have been Mueller, Comey, and Wray. That deck has three jokers.
The reason that the FBI gave for illegally searching NSA records is that they are looking for violent extremists. They could be searching in Minneapolis for BLM or in Portland for antifa. They are ridiculously easy to find.
Instead, they are looking for conservatives violent or not in order to intimidate them into silence. We had a full year of rioting by BLM and antifa. Very violent riots but the January 6th riot lasted just three hours with no businesses looted or burned to the ground.
They still riot.
The FBI is trying to validate the narrative that Old Joe Biden’s handlers had him enunciate during his message to Congress:
“’As I stand here tonight, just one day shy of the 100th day of my administration. 100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation in crisis. The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”
The idea that the entry of a group of unarmed people into the U.S. Capitol constituted the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War” was not just ridiculous (remember 9/11? Pearl Harbor?); it was insidious. Beyond the silliness and hysteria is an insidious agenda. Biden’s handlers mean to stigmatize, demonize and silence all dissent from their far-left agenda. Wildly exaggerating what happened on January 6, and the concomitant “white supremacist agenda,” is in service of that agenda.
And so the FBI goes fishing in material the NSA obtained without a warrant, trying to validate the left’s claims. And this has been a long time coming: Jana Winter reported in Yahoo News in February that “the U.S. government is acknowledging for the first time that right-wing extremists were responsible for the majority of fatal domestic terrorist attacks last year, according to an internal report circulated by the Department of Homeland Security last week.” But as you might expect, the actual report was long on vague assertions and decidedly short on facts.
