he Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has admitted connivance with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and National Security Agency (NSA) to probe the private lives of Americans without a warrant in its updated rulebook, the first version made public since ex-President Barack Obama’s regime.
Revised in 2021 under President Joe Biden’s administration, the 906-page rule book authored during the Trump administration included a decade-old leak showcasing the FBI’s collusion with the CIA and NSA on probes that involved surveillance without court orders against people not accused of any crimes.
The acronyms CIA and NSA are unredacted in section 20.2 of the rewritten rulebook, while the full details of the section remain hidden from public view. Meanwhile, a leaked 2011 copy of the document – without redactions – obtained by news website the Intercept showed that section 20.2 covers name trace requests, which involve formal FBI requests for other agencies to conduct searches of their records regarding subjects of interest.
The FBI assessments are investigations of people and groups that do not require accusations of wrongdoing and need only an “authorized purpose” and a clear objective, according to the 2021 rule book. The investigations are intended to prevent federal crimes, protect against threats to national security or collect foreign intelligence.
