John Solomon and Sara Carter, Circa: Declassified memos show FBI illegally shared spy data on Americans with private parties
The FBI has illegally shared raw intelligence about Americans with unauthorized third parties and violated other constitutional privacy protections, according to newly declassified government documents that undercut the bureau’s public assurances about how carefully it handles warrantless spy data to avoid abuses or leaks.
In his final congressional testimony before he was fired by President Trump this month, then-FBI Director James Comey unequivocally told lawmakers his agency used sensitive espionage data gathered about Americans without a warrant only when it was “lawfully collected, carefully overseen and checked.”

Update: More Revelations On How The NSA Routinely Violated Privacy Protections During The Obama Administration (May 23, 2017)
WNU Editor: On top of obtaining a lot of declassified memos, someone has been feeding Circa in the past few weeks with with a lot of embarrassing and disturbing information on how Americans were put under surveillance during the Obama administration. But what is even more revealing is that no one in the White House, former Obama officials, and the Congress .... are denying any of it. As for the main stream media .... complete silence.
Update: Speaking of the FBI .... FBI won’t provide Comey memos to Congress yet (Politico). The FBI is saying that they must consult Robert Mueller before releasing the memos to Congress .... so when is the FBI going to call the special counsel to get his A-OK? Something tells me that they are not going to call him or be very accommodating .... especially since there are now growing demands that the FBI releases all of Comey's memos .... not only those relating to his meetings with Trump, but also with former AG Loretta Lynch, as well as with President Obama and Hillary Clinton. In the end .... I do think all of these memos will eventually be made public, and I also suspect that many people will be disappointed when they learn that there really is nothing there.
