REPORT: CIA Secretly Collects Bulk Data on Americans

The CIA has a secret database that includes information collected about Americans per a partially declassified letter revealed late Thursday.

According to NBC News:

There have long been concerns about what information the intelligence community collects domestically, driven in part by previous violations of Americans’ civil liberties. The CIA and National Security Agency have a foreign mission and are generally barred from investigating Americans or U.S. businesses. But the spy agencies’ sprawling collection of foreign communications often snares Americans’ messages and data incidentally.

Sens. Ron Wyden of Oregon and Martin Heinrich of New Mexico sent a letter to top intelligence officials calling for more details about the program to be declassified. Large parts of the letter, which was sent in April 2021 and declassified Thursday, and documents released by the CIA were blacked out. Wyden and Heinrich said the program operated “outside the statutory framework that Congress and the public believe govern this collection.”

While neither the agency nor lawmakers would disclose specifics about the data, the senators alleged the CIA had long hidden details about the program from the public and Congress.

It isn’t the first time a federal agency has been accused of abusing its powers against innocent American citizens.

We are becoming more like a Police State every day. The Fisa Court is an Un-Constitutional court. The Congress has no problem violating the laws that were created to protect us from an overreaching govt. It’s more than clear, that their idea of Democracy doesn’t include We the People, A new form, we do what we are told to do, or pay the price. They can break the laws, but we can’t, and not even ask a question, can we? and expect an honest answer. The question facing us, will we roll over, and obey, or stand up against the tyrants, not raising a fist, nor kneeling, to them. But exposing them for who they are, the Enemies of Freedom, Liberty, Anti-Family, Anti-God. They are not with the majority, they are little people, afraid, scared, frightened, and very weak, they stand for Nothing, but only being a Tyrant. That’s all they know, pretty hollow, without substance.

Does it really matter which government agency has our information? Obama allowed intelligence to be shared by 17 different agencies. Remember nothing’s sacred, even the Department of Education has SWAT teams.
