Learn how the FBI can manipulate what you say and use it against you, and how to prevent them from doing so! With civil liberties and civil rights attorney Harvey Silverglate.
Step One: The Interview
One agent conducts the actual interview of the suspect while the second takes notes of the inquisition, which are later filed as a 302 Form. This FBI fabrication, Form 302 now becomes the ‘Official Record’ of all events and statements which occurred during the interview.
Step Two: Misrepresentation
The 302 Form is the FBI agent’s narrative of events and represents their view of what the witness said and did, regardless of whether this in fact agrees with the objective reality of actual events as they actually occurred.
FBI policy forbids the interview or questioning of a witness or suspect if a recording device is present thus making the subjective 302 the only standard to which factuality and truth is held. This is the institutionalisation of manipulating testimony to be damaging to the witness and beneficial to the FBI.
Step Three: Gotcha!
The pernicious federal statute Title 18 United States Code 1001 ( 18 U.S.C. § 1001) the False Statement Statute:
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, whoever, in any
matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or
judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly
and willfully -
(1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or
device a material fact;
(2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent
statement or representation; or
(3) makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the
same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent
statement or entry;
shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years
or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as
defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or
(b) Subsection (a) does not apply to a party to a judicial
proceeding, or that party's counsel, for statements,
representations, writings or documents submitted by such party or
counsel to a judge or magistrate in that proceeding.
(c) With respect to any matter within the jurisdiction of the
legislative branch, subsection (a) shall apply only to -
(1) administrative matters, including a claim for payment, a
matter related to the procurement of property or services,
personnel or employment practices, or support services, or a
document required by law, rule, or regulation to be submitted to
the Congress or any office or officer within the legislative
(2) any investigation or review, conducted pursuant to the
authority of any committee, subcommittee, commission or office of
the Congress, consistent with applicable rules of the House or
Anyone who is talking to any employee of the Federal Government and lies, not under oath, simply in causal conversation becomes punishable by fine and imprisonment for up to five (5) years for a statement or up to eight (8) years if the statement ’invovles’ international or domestic terrorism OR both.
Should a previously interviewed individual be called as a witness to testify under oath and makes a statment disagreeing with the FBI fabricated 302 Form they, according to the official record of events, have now willfully lied to a Federal employee OR committed purjury by lying under oath, as what they have testified to is not in accordance to what the FBI has filed as ‘reality’. This is the means by which the victim is now pressured into ‘cooperation’ becoming another tool of the FBI.
