A recently filed lawsuit accuses the FBI of stealing $85 million from 800 safe deposit boxes.
The feds seized $85 million in cash, precious metals and family heirlooms stored in about 800 safe deposit boxes in Los Angeles.
A class-action lawsuit claims the FBI “exceeded the search warrant approved by the court” when it raided storage provider, US Private Vaults (USPV) and snooped through the contents of the safe deposit boxes.The Gateway Pundit
You could call this the crime of the century.
But that’s more likely to be the unindicted co-conspirators associated with Jan 6, the suspected election theft, or the steady removal of our civil liberties since what some call the ‘Plandemic’ began.
Seems like there’s a lot of crimes to choose from!
But back to the story.
USPV was indicted by the feds for conspiracy to sell drugs and launder money, however the owners of the boxes are not accused of committing any crimes.
The search warrant only authorized the FBI to inspect the safe deposit boxes to “identify their owners in order to notify them” about claiming their property.
The FBI agents were caught on video going through the boxes, tearing open packages with coins after already identifying the owner’s name.
“Items appear to be missing” – The owner’s lawyer told the Los Angeles Times the FBI’s list of inventory left out $75,000 in gold coins.The Gateway Pundit
Ever heard of government overreach?
It’s a classic, and Republicans have spoken out about it for decades.
But it looks like our three-letter agencies have only become more invasive.
The Biden Administration certainly isn’t helping in that regard, because they’re all in favor of big government.
Luckily, this case is getting some attention.
The Institute for Justice, a watchdog accountability group is spearheading the fight and filed a temporary restraining order this week on behalf of several owners who stand to lose the contents of their safe deposit boxes if a federal judge doesn’t intervene.
This is the “most outrageous Fourth Amendment abuse that the Institute for Justice has ever seen,” Frommer, the IJ attorney, said when it announced the case. “It is like the government breaking into every apartment in a building because the landlord was dealing drugs in the lobby.”
Just The News reported:
Several are suing the government for seizing the contents of about 800 boxes as part of a March raid of the storage provider, U.S. Private Vaults (USPV), which was indicted for conspiracy to sell drugs and launder money.
The Institute for Justice (IJ) is seeking class-action status for a May lawsuit by several owners alleging “shocking, unconscionable, and unconstitutional” behavior by the government. IJ attorney Robert Frommer accused the feds of an “$85 million cash grab” from people who were not accused of wrongdoing.The Gateway Pundit
It’s beginning to feel like the elites in this country see the people as peasants to be messed about with whenever they feel like it.
But that’s not how our Constitution was written, and it’s clear that Americans all over our country are being victimized by this regime.
So something has got to give…
Of course, no human knows the future, not even the globalist planners.
But what’s obvious to anyone who stops and looks is that a system like this just isn’t sustainable.
