Journalist Matt Taibbi appears on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo to discuss his findings within the ongoing review of the Twitter communication files.
As Taibbi notes, the FBI was asking for the unmasking of several thousand accounts to include usernames, use identity, ip addresses, geolocation of the account holders and other personal identification data that would normally require a search warrant. The Dept of Homeland Security (DHS), the FBI and in some cases the CIA would submit these requests and Twitter was fulfilling, albeit sometimes uncomfortable in the compliance demand. WATCH:
If you have followed the research behind “Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop,” none of this is likely surprising. However, the ramifications and blatant violations of the fourth amendment are quite stark. It was not that long ago when you would have been accused of being a conspiracy theorist for making these now provable claims.
Mr Taibbi continues to provide the most pertinent takeaways from his reviews. And to his credit, Taibbi always notes there is a pre-filter applied to the information he is receiving; so, it’s highly likely the intelligence state is still controlling the scope of public awareness behind the justification of “national security”.
