Skip to comments.ACLU calls for crackdown on FBI use of intel community to spy on Americans
Posted on 01/11/2023 8:18:27 PM PST by Enterprise
The American Civil Liberties Union is calling for an overhaul of FBI rules after The Washington Times reported that agents used the CIA and National Security Agency to spy on Americans.
The ACLU urged the bureau to impose new limits on agents’ power to investigate Americans without warrants.
The FBI’s rule book, rewritten in 2021, revealed details about how the FBI tasks the CIA and NSA for help on matters including assessments, which are investigations that can involve surveillance without a court order against people not accused of a crime.

Must be a misprint. ACLU living up to its name? Ridiculous. Phony outrage, at best. Let’s see some assigned lawyers, or STFU.
Wow, only took the ACLU 14 years to figure this out. Not bad.
Would this be the same aclu that celebrated the unlawful weaponization of government being used to target conservative groactually?
Does this include Trump, or did they make an exception for him?
How is the ACLU not all about preserving the 2nd Amendment?
The ACLU has a tremendous capacity to do good. Unfortunately, they have become way too political - they will only take on causes when a liberal’s civil rights have been violated.
Could this story indicate a change of direction? I doubt it.
I have no idea what you are talking about. When I searched for ACLU and 2nd Amendment, this is what came up:
ACLU Thinks the Second Amendment Is a Threat to the First Amendment
The ACLU was just fine with this in ‘16 when it meant undermining Trump, and again in ‘20 when it meant inflicting Pedo Joe on an unsuspecting public. Anyone who imagines that they’ve seen the light and are now coming down on the side of freedom is smoking crack.
ACLU says Second Amendment is racist
Congratulations on your principle stand in the defense of the ACLU.
well, for once my
isn’t meant sarcastically!
The J. Edgar Hoover building in DC needs to be knocked down in a sacred ceremony and all the middle and upper management must be canned and the HQ moved to Texas somewhere greatly limited in size. Quantico is too corrupted by its proximity to CIA and DC so move it to Texas as well. Also field offices must have control of cases in their geographic areas. Decentralization helps prevent abuse of power. Lastly return to the policy of no homosexuals, in or out of the closet - they are a risk of being compromised.
Anyone in the deep state who authorized spying on Americans in violation of 4A must be put on public trial and dealt the appropriate punishment if found guilty. They’re all traitors imo.
Remember when the leftists acted all outraged that G W MORON spied on foreign terrorists? Now... not a peep out of the journo-listers over illegal domestic spying by the deep state against political opponents.
Don't corrupt Texas any more than it already is being corrupted. Move the FBI and CIA headquarters to Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, or Louisiana. Nowhere else.
The ACLU began as a communist front organization. They claim to have reformed themselves after WW II. Maybe they did, but I have my doubts. Anyway, if they finally caught on to the FedGov, I say about damn time.
You got it bro. 👍
I’ve long known that the ACLU is not.
They just need to be called out daily.
Canned? Yes, indeed!
Accept only Fibby brand Soylent Green. Now in cans.
If I recall correctly, wasn’t it originally designed, to defend communists?
