questions that should be answered

An oldish story with allot of unanswered question this news article barely touches the details of the whole thing.  Adm. Mike Rodgers discovered and stopped the abuse.  Among the questions, who were these contractors?  What specifically were they searching for?

https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/national/national-security/article152947909.html 

"The “contractors had access to raw FISA information that went well beyond what was necessary to respond to the FBI’s requests,” it said, adding that the bureau discontinued the practice on April 18, 2016."

wonder if someone is looking into this

Who were the contractors and what were they looking for?  Pretty long, but this has largely been passed by and should not have.

On April 18, 2016, Rogers shut down all outside contractor access to raw FISA information – specifically outside contractors working for the FBI. The discovery that outside contractors were accessing raw FISA data is probably the event that precipitated Rogers ordering a full compliance review (Page 84 of Court Ruling).............

FISA abuses were ongoing from at least November 1, 2015 through May 1, 2016. They almost certainly started earlier.

A non-compliance rate of 85% raises substantial questions about the propriety of using [Redacted] to query FISA data. While the government reports that it is unable to provide a reliable estimate of the number of non-compliant queries since 2012, there is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015-April 2016 period coincided with an unusually high error rate.

Re: wonder if someone is looking into this

The commies can't even begin to touch this...  notice the lack of responses?

They're only game plan is to not respond on a national scale and hope people forget about their past crimes if it's under reported.

Re: wonder if someone is looking into this

A normal freedom loving person would be scared to death at the thought of their government collecting this information on citizens, much less allowing private entities access to the information.  Yet the people you reference are affraid not of those possibilities but that those possibilities will be found out.
