That this would happen:
The FBI improperly used national security letters in 2006 to obtain personal data on Americans during terror and spy investigations, Director Robert Mueller said Wednesday.
A report will show subpoenas were improperly used to get personal data, FBI chief Robert Mueller says.
Mueller told the Senate Judiciary Committee that the privacy breach by FBI agents and lawyers occurred a year before the bureau enacted sweeping new reforms to prevent future lapses.
Details on the abuses will be outlined in the coming days in a report by the Justice Department’s inspector general.
The report is a follow-up to an audit by the inspector general a year ago that found the FBI demanded personal data on people from banks, telephone and Internet providers and credit bureaus without official authorization and in non-emergency circumstances between 2003 and 2005.
Mueller, noting senators’ concerns about Americans’ civil and privacy rights, said the new report “will identify issues similar to those in the report issued last March.” The similarities, he said, are because the time period of the two studies “predates the reforms we now have in place.”
But don’t you worry- everything is fixed good now with our reforms, yesirree bob!
You know, if there was any evidence that she would begin criminal investigations the moment she became President, I would vote for Hillary in a second. My big fear, after watching the folks in her campaign, is that they will embrace their newfound authoritah.
