If you think our government has our best interests in mind, you may need to think this over. FBI pulled in the CIA and NSA to spy on Americans. That’s not all… apparently, this was without court orders, and could have been against people who were not even accused of crimes. This apparently has been going on since 2011, in internal documents according to a leaked 2011 rule book on assessments. Apparently, these assessments went after left and right wing groups, digging for dirt. Senator Chuck Grassley was told by the FBI that they didn’t need to explain their probes, and now the GAO is starting a deeper dive into the FBI actions.

Details about how the FBI uses the CIA and National Security Agency to probe the private lives of Americans without a warrant are revealed in the FBI’s updated rule book, which is the first version made public since the Obama administration.
