FBI agents violated agency rules at least 747 times in 18 months while conducting investigations involving politicians, candidates, religious groups, news media and others, according to a 2019 FBI audit obtained by The Washington Times. 

 

The internal review revealed a ratio of slightly more than two “compliance errors” per sensitive investigative matter reviewed by FBI auditors. These errors included agents’ failure to obtain approval from senior FBI officials to start an investigation, failure to document a necessary legal review before opening an investigation and failure to tell prosecutors what they were doing.

 

Cato Institute senior fellow Patrick Eddington uncovered the audit in litigation his organization brought against the FBI for access to government records. He said the audit reveals how far “off-the-chain” FBI field offices have strayed.:snip:

We have Seen This Movie Before COINTELPRO

 

An interesting little fact the FBI all but destroyed The Socialist Workers Party under this program. Not in the way you might think. When Cointelpro was reveled it was found 50%+ members of SWP were actually FBI or other law enforcement agencies agents, informants.

The problem is Not What the Feds are doing (See Joseph D. Pistone), but But Who they are investigating/infiltrating, and Why. 

Of course there is Always the issue of Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Well, it seems like it doesn't matter. If there is  someone, there just taking notes, not taking action.

Yet. Or at least I hope so.
