The FBI can’t seem to stay out of the news. Their many scandals and corruption are being aired out for all to see.
And you won’t believe what the FBI just got caught stealing.
The American people have gotten a rare glimpse into the underbelly of the FBI over the past few months. And it isn’t pretty.
Regular agents have come under fire from their superiors for blowing the whistle on major mishandlings.
What we know now is that the FBI is targeting conservative Americans as extremists and possible “domestic terrorists,” even lying about cases to boost numbers for the Biden administration.
They also punted the Hunter Biden laptop story until after the 2020 election, making sure to instruct Big Tech CEOs like Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to censor the story.
And who could forget their politically targeted raid of Donald Trump’s home and the SWAT team arrest of pro-life activist Mark Houck?
If all of this wasn’t enough, another scandal involving the agency and the US Attorney’s Office was just uncovered.
According to a recent report, the FBI conducted a raid in 2021 where they seized $86 million in cash and other cash assets from customers of a Beverly Hills safety deposit company.
A senior FBI agent testified that one of the main points of the plan, which was not disclosed to the judge responsible for awarding a warrant, was the permanent confiscation of the contents of every box that contained at least $5,000 in cash or goods.
After having their money permanently stolen from them, customers of the company filed a class-action lawsuit alleging the FBI violated their rights. Only then was the alleged disclosure failure discovered in FBI documents and agent depositions.
The FBI justified ceasing everyone’s money by saying it was tied to unknown crimes.
Court filings also showed that the FBI agents defied a judge’s restrictions in the warrant by searching through box holders’ belongings for evidence of crimes.
“The government did not know what was in those boxes, who owned them, or what, if anything, those people had done,” Robert Frommer, a lawyer currently representing nearly 400 box holders in the class-action case, wrote in court papers.
As reported by the New York Post:
Agents searched some 800 safety deposit boxes rented by ordinary people, taking cash, jewelry and $1.3 million in poker chips. They photographed password lists, credit cards, a prenuptial agreement, immigration and vaccination records, bank statements, heirlooms and a will, and in one box, even found cremated human remains.
It should come as no surprise that the FBI plays by its own rules and not the laws made by elected representatives.
And as the highest level of law enforcement in this country, do you really expect them to investigate themselves?
Of course not. The federal government can literally steal almost $100 million dollars from citizens, and nothing happens to them.
But their flagrant disregard for the law could come back to bite the Democrats in November.
