Senate Hearings On FBI Misconduct Begin
March 21, 2007
Robert Mueller to Congress: Do you really expect me to answer that honestly. Do you think I want to go to jail or something!
The Senate Hearings on FBI misconduct in abusing the Patriot Act began this week and so far, it is amounting to nothing more than a slap on the wrist, for very serious misconduct that severely betrayed the American people and offended foreign countries as well, who did nothing to warrant the scandalous secondhand spying from Robert Mueller, head of the FBI.
But keep just slapping Mueller on the wrist for what is illegal conduct - give it a little time, you’re gonna find out far worse things about what’s been going on under his tenure, that the American people aren’t gonna be able to stomach. The people will hold you, Congress, accountable for letting it happen and continue.
God has a funny way of uncovering these things. One should never be confident in misconduct and so called political power. As the Good Book says, “The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away” ("the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away" - Job 1: 20-21).
Robert Mueller: I'd like to invoke my 5th Amendment right at this time to prevent self-incrimination.
So keep it up, Mueller. History is gonna record you as a villain who betrayed his own people by spying on them and using it for unsanctioned purposes.
Yesterday, Mueller, pretending he didn’t know about the abuses, ordered an audit of the FBI’s 56 field offices in the continental United States. Why? You lead by example, Mueller. They learned this from somewhere. Something had to have made those guys think it was okay to do this.
If you didn’t authorize it, the agents couldn’t have been doing this and with the problem being so widespread either. The agents have been working in this manner like it is standard operating procedure for a reason. Somebody gave them the clearance to…and that somebody is you.
Over 10,000 abuses were found. The FBI only has 30,000 agents. So that would mean:
If a portion of the nation’s FBI agents abused one NSL = 10,000 agents broke the law.
If a portion of the nation’s FBI agents abused two NSLs = 5,000 agents broke the law.
That would mean 1/4th to 1/3rd of them, broke the law, if they, on average, used 1 to 2 NSLs inappropriately.
Nah! I don’t believe that many of them just up and did this. Somebody told them it was okay to do this and that somebody was you.
You knew exactly what was going on. According to credible articles, you were even warned by the government’s lawyers, but you brushed it aside and continued the misconduct two years later…and running. Seems to be a pattern with you.
This audit of the 56 field offices of the FBI is only to save face. What? Are you gonna punish them for something you told them it was okay to do, to save your own butt.
See, this is how people’s lives get destroyed and their freedom taken, for following instructions from a corrupt senior officer.
Why don’t you start the audit with yourself:
Mueller reading phone transcript: The nerve of Aisha whining to her father on the phone that I am violating her human rights. Just who do they think they are, human beings with rights.
Some more questions for you:
May the American people and international community have copies of you and your family’s telephone records?
May the American people and international community have transcripts of you and your family’s telephone calls?
May the American people and international community have copies of you and your family’s banking records (inland and offshore, please)?
May the American people and international community have copies of you and your family’s emails, instant message and chat room conversations?
May the American people and international community have copies of you and your family’s medical records?
May the American people and international community have copies of all the books you and your families have been checking out from libraries?
May the American people and international community have a list of all you and your family’s movie rentals?
May the American people and international community commission an investigation of you and your family, following all of you around 24/7, asking your doctors, employers, business associates, mechanics and household pets (sarcasm), all your private and professional business, then perversely spread the contents around among ourselves, like animals.
Your FBI bio states you have two daughters. May the American people and the international community pay men to follow them around day and night, tap their phones, read the transcripts of all the domestic and international calls they make the latter AKA violating international law, read all their bank statements, emails and instant messages, a list of all the books they check out, approach their friends, employers and associates asking personal questions about them and make nuisance calls to their homes.
Of course you would say no, because what kind of animal would do something like that to your innocent family. Aha. Yet you thought it was appropriate to do this vileness to innocent people. There’s something very wrong with that.
All this stems from is arrogance and a false sense of privilege. Thinking that you are above the law and other people, so it is sickly okay for you to delve deeply into their personal lives without proper authorization or ethical footing.
Some Congressional feedback from both parties:
Republican: Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) told Caproni bluntly, "From the attorney general on down, you should be ashamed of yourself." Congress gave the FBI the tools it needed in the Patriot Act "to make America safe," he said, and "you've abused that trust." If people in the private sector had done what the FBI did, federal authorities would arrest and prosecute them, Issa said.
Democrat: "This was a serious breach of trust," said Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), the chairman of the committee. "The department had converted this tool into a handy shortcut to illegally gather vast amounts of private information while at the same time significantly underreporting its activities to Congress." He said national security letters were "used repeatedly to invade the privacy of law-abiding Americans outside the law and proper legal process." - Washington Post
