New York Post: FBI and Facebook cooperated to spy on users’ correspondence
The American social network Facebook (social network banned in Russia; owned by Meta, known as extremist and banned in the Russian Federation) cooperated with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to spy on users’ private correspondence. The New York Post wrote about it, citing sources of the Department of Justice.
According to the publication, users interested in the 2020 presidential election in the United States became the subject of espionage. The reason for the surveillance is to disagree with the government’s position or negatively evaluate its actions, the release said. “Facebook sent private communications to the FBI without any legal requirement to release the information. This has been done without going through the process prescribed by law”, quoted New York Post sources.
The data transfer is said to have taken place over the past 19 months. Social media workers provided them to the FBI headquarters unit responsible for combating terrorist threats in the United States. Facebook has denied these allegations.
Earlier, TikTok was under suspicion of surveillance. Then US President Donald Trump’s campaign headquarters announced the spying of the service.
