The FBI improperly used warrantless search powers against U.S. citizens more than 278,000 times in the year ending November 2021, according to an unsealed Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) filing.
U.S. citizens covered in that improper effort included people involved in the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021; George Floyd protesters during the summer of 2020; and donors to a failed congressional candidate, the filing said.
Section 702 of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) allows the government to conduct targeted surveillance of non-U.S. persons located abroad to acquire foreign intelligence information.

In 2012, the day after Obama’s re-election, I received a text message from a number I’d never seen before. It was a direct, pointed response to something I said in another text conversation that I was having with a friend (about the election).
What made it even more bizarre was the fact that I’d just moved to Southern California and still had a Philly area code, and the call came from the area code I’d moved to, with a prefix indicating that it was in the town I was living in. Very few people locally had my number at the time, making a wrong number text even more unlikely.
Again, this was a direct and specific response to something I said in another text conversation less than a minute prior to receiving it. And the response could only be read in one of two ways: warning or threat. Since it’s been almost 11 years and I haven’t been renditioned, I’m assuming it was the former.
They’ve been listening for a long time.
