Former FBI Director James Comey is making headline once again this week. According to what a former U.S. intelligence contractor said, there’s about 600 million classified documents proving that Comey’s FBI violated the Constitution.
The contractor, Dennis Montgomery, is suing Comey and other government figures because he believes the FBI covered up evidence he provided them showing widespread spying on Americans that violated civil liberties.
He has filled a lawsuit after revealing he handed over evidence to the FBI that shows the warrantless collection of phone, financial and personal data and the unmasking of identities in spy data about millions of Americans. He said:
This domestic surveillance was all being done on computers supplied by the FBI. So these supercomputers, which are FBI computers, the CIA is using them to do domestic surveillance.”
Montgomery said around 20 million American identities were illegally unmasked – credit reports, emails, phone conversations and Internet traffic, were some of the items the NSA and CIA collected. He also said he returned the hard drives to the FBI, a fact confirmed in government documents reviewed. He said:
“They’re doing this domestic surveillance on Americans, running a project on U.S. soil.”
The project names was not revealed. However, we know all aspects of the project from Montgomery’s interview with the FBI.
