FISA court scolds FBI for 'widespread violations' of privacy rules

Judge James Boasberg

"In a ruling made in December but unsealed over the Labor Day weekend, Judge James Boasberg revealed that a July 2019 audit had found 87 instances in which the FBI queried "raw FISA acquired" evidence even though agents or analysts "were not reasonably likely to retrieve foreign intelligence information or evidence of a crime" as required by law. In other words, they risked violating Americans' privacy without a lawful basis."
