In order to grab domestic records of phone calls made within the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation lied, simply making up terrorist threats that did not actually exist. The Fourth Amendment to the United States of the U.S. Constitution guarantees that the government cannot accomplish searches or seizures without a warrant and an affirmation of probable cause. The FBI did not use warrants. The FBI lied in order to create the fictitious appearance of probable cause. The FBI violated the supreme law of the land — not once, not twice, not a dozen times, not a hundred times, but thousands of times.
What’s more, it turns out that FBI Director Robert Mueller has known of the FBI practice of lies and illegality for more than three years. Did Mueller reveal the lawbreaking at his FBI to the public and to the Congress? No: it took a newspaper investigation to uncover these illegal activities. That’s a coverup.
Will FBI Robert Mueller resign for his three-year-long coverup of illegal domestic searches and seizures? Will President Barack Obama demand his resignation for covering up illegal conduct? Or will Barack Obama condone government lies and abuse of power? Will President Obama keep Mueller in place, rewarding the practice of deceit and coverup?
