The FBI personnel that are being charged are not even authorized
to request records from phone companies, only investigators can request such
records. These employees were in the Communications Analysis Unit
, all they are suppose to do is analyze information that is given to them by
investigators. I guess they just decided to start investigating people on their own.
These FBI employees merely told the phone companies that a subpoena was in the works and the phone companies just handed them the requested records.
There was no subpoenas in the works.
I wonder how much more of this is going on that you never hear of?
