FBI Misled Judge Regarding $86 Million Seizure

Right now, I feel like I am reporting a new FBI scandal just about every day.  

The latest being how the agency misled a judge.  

That deception landed the FBI with $86 million in seized cash.  

Take It All 

The FBI obtained a warrant from U.S. Magistrate Judge Steve Kim to go through 1,400 safe deposit boxes at the Beverly Hills Private Vaults store.  

The plan was to permanently seize all goods in any single box that were valued at more than $5,000. 

The FBI raided the store on the premise the private boxes were linked to crimes.  

Altogether, the agency seized $86 million in cash, jewelry, precious metals, coins, etc.  

According to reports, the FBI ignored the restrictions on the warrant and blatantly misled the judge to get the warrant in the first place.  

Robert Frommer, who is representing nearly 400 box holders in the class-action lawsuit, stated, "The government did not know what was in those boxes, who owned them, or what, if anything, those people had done. 

"That's why the warrant application did not even attempt to argue there was probable cause to seize and forfeit box renters' property." 

So far, the content of about half the boxes seized has been returned because the FBI has no evidence at all to support keeping the valuables and money.  

I do not understand how Wray still has a job at this point.
