The FBI Refuses to Name Other Social Media Companies It’s Paying
According to Cindy Harper of Reclaim the Net, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has not named the social networks it has paid. This development comes on the heels of news confirming that the bureau paid Twitter at least $3.5 million.
FBI representatives talked to Fox News and revealed that the sizable
Twitter payment was a “reimbursement” for expenses and costs of its requests.
The FBI revealed that the group had paid other social media platforms apart from Twitter. Fox News pressed the FBI to reveal the names of other companies it had paid for these activities. In the end, the FBI was unwilling to provide additional information concerning the topic. However, the FBI representatives revealed that the agency offers payment for all reasonable expenses connected to the acquisition of information that is critical for legal processes.
“While we are not able to speak to specific payments, the government is required to provide reimbursement for reasonable expenses directly related to searching for, assembling, reproducing, or otherwise providing the information responsive to the legal process. This requirement is set by federal law and the courts are the final arbiters of what is reasonable compensation,” the FBI officials stated.
The FBI is a rogue government agency that does whatever it pleases due to the power it has been granted by the congressional uniparty.
This agency is an unconstitutional blight on the American Republic, in addition to being an existential threat to Middle America. Serious political figures on the Right would do everything possible to defund, if not outright abolish, the FBI.
This institution must get the ax if the rule of law is to survive in America.
