A whistleblower who claims to work for the Department of Justice alleges that Facebook has been monitoring its users’ private messages.

However, the violation of privacy doesn’t end there. It would be one thing if they were simply reading messages for enjoyment, but searching for anti-government rhetoric and reporting it to the FBI would be quite another.

The FBI and someone from Facebook both responded to the charges, showing that they are being taken fairly seriously.

In her first statement, Erica Sackin, who is a spokesperson for Meta said,

“These claims are false because they reflect a misunderstanding of how our systems protect people from harm and how we engage with law enforcement. We carefully scrutinize all government requests for user information to make sure they’re legally valid and narrowly tailored and we often push back. We responded to legal requests for information in accordance with applicable law and our terms and we provide notice to users whenever permitted.”

In another statement, Sackin said,

“These claims are just wrong. The suggestion we seek out peoples’ private messages for anti-government language or questions about the validity of past elections and then proactively supply those to the FBI is plainly inaccurate and there is zero evidence to support it.”

If they are spying, they should be targeting real terrorists. But I’d be willing to bet money that they are actually this to conservatives. Just think about it for a moment. The radical left has been trying to gaslight conservatives and even calling us all domestic terrorists if any of us supported President Trump.

Now, combine that with this statement from the FBI on this matter:

“The FBI maintains relationships with U.S. private sector entities, including social media providers. The FBI has provided companies with foreign threat indicators to help them protect their platforms and customers from abuse by foreign malign influence actors. U.S. companies have also referred information to the FBI with investigative value relating to foreign malign influence. The FBI works closely with interagency partners, as well as state and local partners, to ensure we’re sharing information as it becomes available. This can include threat information, actionable leads, or indicators. The FBI has also established relationships with a variety of social media and technology companies and maintains an ongoing dialogue to enable a quick exchange of threat information.”

It’s the same crap that we saw under the Obama administration with them spying on conservatives, except this time, they’re taking things much further.

  • This is not a surprise. Biden is scared, the demos are scared & they are willing to do most anything to turn this around. They are going after President Trump who fortunately has a judge who can see thru what they are doing. They are willing to drop plane after plane in cities at night wihtout telling anyone full of illegals. So what does this say about the demo party?

  • I also read that anyone who posts articles or memes of a political nature i.e. conservative/patriot, fakebook is forwarding the info and your name to the 6 Jan committee for their review and your possible arrest.

  • I’m interested if the department of justice throughout 2016, 2017 and 2020 saw information from Facebook and other social media on violently protesting liberals against the government and who were harming private and public entities, and attacking people?

  • Investigate this: The most sophisticated data gathering operation ever conducted by the CIA ended, and Facebook went online… The same day.

  • Our nation, so free in the past, has been taken over by Corporations and Intel agencies. I am almost afraid to say anything against Biden and Pelosi, Nadler and Schiff, Wray and Garland, Comey and McCabe I know they are liars and crooked but I’ll keep my mouth shut. The Fab 50 traitors that signed the Lap Top as Ruski misinformation needs to be in jail, but, if the lower echelon Intel people are so afraid to say something I should be too –so I won’t say anything.

    • Comey admitted 20 years ago that he is a Communist. This is who’s controlling our government today. Brennan is another confirmed Communist.
      Our Government is either in bed with Communists (like farting Eric). Or they’re busy selling off secrets to the Communists (think Hillary & Bill giving away our missile guidance system to China). Mitch McConnel’s FIL is a shipping magnet who’s tied to the CCP.
      There needs to be a vetting process before these people should even be allowed to run for office or be allowed to accept these positions of power.

  • “These claims are just wrong. The suggestion we seek out peoples’ private messages for anti-government language or questions about the validity of past elections and then proactively supply those to the FBI is plainly inaccurate and there is zero evidence to support it.”

    So why then were my messages taken down and my accounts suspended and deleted for replies I made in the privacy of my Messenger?!

    Fecalbook read them and deleted five of my accounts due to post I made in messenger. Fact.

    Quit using them there after in 2017 after losing 12 accounts.

  • Hmmm! This retired soldier posted undeniable truth during the Benghazi mess, and this backs up my claims. This piece of evidence was something anyone could have found, and saved. It is information that only military personnel would know about, but it wasn’t classified, or FOUO. What did Facebook do? Facebook took my entire history out for three days. When my history was returned, the military document, and description had disappeared, and my friends comments about my post history was gone. The document could have put that O guy, and the rest of his Dem buddies under an electronic microscope. I was still in the military, so I got real quiet. Facebook has been relentless in their spying, and needless to say, I left the band of lefty-louies behind me.

  • Well it didn’t turn out that well for the last batch of NAZI’S! Won’t be any better for this batch! Just don’t understand how they are so gullible? It is like they are the walking dead! They say what ever they are told! They repeat it word for word! They can’t see they voted to screw themselves! In fact they are cheering they are being screwed! Was that all in the JAB??? Glad I was not that stupid! Even Biden faked himself taking it and the idiots lined up like he was giving them a new car! The American Democrat has become the dumbest creature on the planet! They are still waiting for the rich to pay for everything! LMAO! Like that will ever happen! They will die with there empty cup still empty! Just a fact!

  • I have been doing battle with facebook for years. It seemed nice at first getting in touch with out of state family, sharing pictures and such with friends. Sharing cartoons and cat and dog recordings. Then it seemed a lot of it turned political when Trump won his election and even before. I noticed if i posted something in favor of trump, the censors would would erase it or say it was against facebook policies. AOL did the same thing. It isn’t at all surprising that these social media entities are being used as data collectors for the FBI and DOJ and who knows what who else. I’m sure they get compensated for this data. I’ve made some searches for certain things or discussed it on social media and all of a sudden I am inundated with ads and emails hawking what i was looking for. I used to taunt AOL and Facebook censors telling them that one day they would suffer for denying us our free speech…maybe they would be tracked down and arrested… I would tell them people do not like being censored! Well, I see facebook has lost 50% of it’s value on the stock market and things aren’t looking great for Zuker. Maybe there is a God after all.
