On Sunday, Townhall posted an article about the number of warrantless searches on American citizens.
The article reports:
In the fiscal year for the U.S. government that ended in November 2021, the FBI conducted more than 278,000 warrantless searches on U.S. citizens.
The information was unsealed in a FISA court ruling this past week.
So on average, during just that one year, the FBI was carrying out as many as 762 warrantless searches per day. That’s 32 improper searches per hour. That breaks down to a new warrantless search every 2 minutes.
These numbers do not include proper searches that used warrants and carried out the usual function of the bureau.
It also does not include the 3,400,000 times the FBI searched citizens’ data without warrants. That’s 9,315 per day, 388 per hour, and 6.5 per minute.
So in 2021–every two minutes—the FBI conducted a physical search and 13 data searches—illegally—for the entire year.
The same agency we now know tipped off that Hillary Clinton was colluding with Russia to frame Donald Trump and did nothing about it…
The same agency that lied to the FISA court to extend search warrants to surveil people that were later vindicated and cleared…
The same agency that allowed agents to conduct extra-marital relationships (an action that violates the FBI code of conduct) and feverishly work to remove a lawfully elected President…
The same agency that has held the Hunter Biden laptop in its possession has chosen to do zero in enforcement….
The same agency that knew that one political party was attempting to smear, frame, and remove an incoming President and briefed then-President Barack Obama and then-Vice-President Joe Biden as to the plans…

Our Constitution protects us from unlawful searches:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The people engaged in this unlawful surveillance need to be arrested.
