The case of an American journalist caught up in the FBI’s domestic surveillance of foreign nationals is drawing national attention to the FBI and the bureau’s tactics of infiltrating and surveilling journalists.
As journalist Sam Biddle reported, on October 20, 2017, the FBI raided his home in Brooklyn, New York, seizing his laptop and documents.
The raid was reportedly part of an investigation into a string of online harassment campaigns against women who have publicly criticized the Trump administration.
“It was the most serious domestic surveillance operation I’ve ever seen in my career,” Biddle told Al Jazeera, speaking of the investigation.
“This was an attempt to shut down any dissent or criticism of the Trump Administration.
They were looking for anyone who could have leaked information, anyone who had information that could be used against the Trump campaign.”
Biddle was targeted by the FBI, after he published an article on the subject of the campaign against women online.
The FBI raided Biddle’s home, taking away his laptop, but it was unclear if he was arrested, charged or tried for the crime of publishing classified information.
Biddle says the FBI agents asked him several questions about the allegations against him.
He told them he was a journalist and that he was concerned about the impact that the harassment campaign could have on his family.
“They were trying to make me feel uncomfortable and threatened, and it’s something I would never want to do,” Biddel said.
He believes the FBI was trying to intimidate him and that they targeted him because of his political beliefs.
The article in question was written by a female reporter named Samantha Bee, who had become a subject of FBI investigations.
Bee was one of several journalists targeted by undercover agents from the FBI during an investigation that started in 2016.
She is the first female journalist to be arrested by the bureau, and she was released from custody the following month.
“The FBI has targeted journalists and reporters, but we are not the only ones,” Biddler said.
“I think there are a lot of women in this country who have been targeted and harassed by the government and that’s why I am speaking out.”
The FBI and its allies have been conducting domestic surveillance operations on journalists and journalists’ sources for years.
In 2014, the bureau investigated a group of New York Times journalists, who were accused of leaking information to WikiLeaks, including a confidential memo by a top official at the New York Police Department.
The investigation focused on the New Times’ use of confidential information, including confidential sources.
The memo, which contained sensitive information about undercover investigations, was used by the New Orleans Police Department to investigate the New Black Panther Party.
The New York Daily News, a newspaper that is critical of the NYPD and the Clintons, was targeted during the investigation, but its editor was later acquitted of wrongdoing.
During a 2016 investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) conducted surveillance on journalist David Sirota, who was a correspondent for Fusion, a right-leaning website that was launched by conservative blogger Glenn Beck.
The bureau also monitored Sirosa for two years, after Beck accused him of leaking confidential information.
The federal government has a history of spying on journalists.
In May 2018, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office began a criminal investigation into the New England Journal of Medicine for publishing articles critical of Republican Gov.
At the time, the investigation was based on a complaint by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which accused the journal of spreading hate speech.
The Sirottas were also targeted in an investigation by the Justice Department’s National Security Division.
The DOJ had targeted the Sirotas for publishing an article about how the New Jersey Governor’s office was using federal resources to monitor the communications of Muslim Americans, and then targeting the Surottas for reporting on it.
According to documents obtained by the AP, the DOJ also began an investigation against journalist Ryan J. Reilly, who worked for the Huffington Post, after the newspaper published a story that featured an allegation of racial discrimination against black people by the US Attorney’s office for New Jersey.
Reilly has since been fired from the Huffington-Post after it was revealed he was fired because of a story.
In September 2018, a federal judge in New York blocked the FBI from conducting an investigation of journalist Jason Rezaian, a Palestinian American who was jailed in Iran for over a year on charges of spying for the US.
Rezaians father, Ali Rezaia, was executed by the regime in 2009, after Reza’s father was arrested and charged with espionage and attempting to overthrow the regime.
The US was involved in an international war against Iran over its nuclear program in violation of international law.
The Iranian government denied any involvement in the assassination, which is a violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
The Obama administration has been criticized for its treatment of journalists in Iran.
In March 2017, a US appeals court upheld
