How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Reporter in Washington D.C. Learns FBI Was Monitoring His Calls to Disgraced D.C. Councilman

A tenacious reporter who covers urban affairs and the D.C. Council received a troubling email from the U.S. Attorney’s Office: His voice was picked up after agents tapped the cell phones of now-disgraced Councilman Michael Brown, WUSA9 reports.

“I’m not going to be surprised if I call someone at some point in the near future and they say ‘I can’t talk to you because the FBI might be listening,'” reporter Bruce Johnson told the news station, where he works. “Bottom line, of course it’s unsettling when you get a call saying the FBI has heard part of your conversation in the course of you doing your job.”

Here’s a statement from the US Attorney’s Office:

“As has been widely reported, during the investigation which led to former Council Member Michael A. Brown’s conviction on a bribery charge, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia authorized the interception of wire and electronic communications on two cell phones used by Mr. Brown during the relevant time period.

“Thus, some communications between Mr. Brown and individuals not otherwise connected to the government’s investigation were intercepted. Significantly, law enforcement utilized procedures to minimize and reduce to the smallest possible number the amount of innocent and non-pertinent communications that were intercepted between individuals and the target of its investigations.

“The government, as it does in all of its Title III investigations, recently provided notice to individuals who were named in the court orders authorizing interceptions or whose communications with Mr. Brown were intercepted during the course of its investigation. The contents of those intercepted communications will remain sealed, will not be used for any other purpose, and are not anticipated to result in any additional charges against Mr. Brown or anyone else.”

fbi are deadly traitors; a murderer is less to fear.

Public Notice:
SIDE WITH FBI thugs OR SUPPORT THEM IN ANY WAY MAKES ONE AN ACCESSORY TO THE FBI’S HIGH CRIMES (including those against humanity) GLOBALLY.

As people discover the immoral, cowardly and macabre character of the agents, operatives, handlers and associates of the fbi/cia (as manifest globally in the killing/torture techniques used by these sociopathic assassins to insure compliance to new world order dictates) we may not reasonably expect a merciful redress from foreign and domestic freedom fighters forced from desperation to employ against US equally aggressive and abhorrent stratagems.
