President Clinton starts spying on citizens 18 years before the FBI did with Crossfire Hurricane
President Bill Clinton was the first to begin a secret spy program against American citizens. He did it by signing a 15-page Presidential Decision Directive 62 (PDD-62) dated May 22, 1998. It was declassified and released three days ago.
Unlike an Executive Order, a PDD needs no Congressional approval and can remain top secret for 20 years.

PDD-62 proceeded Crossfire Hurricane by 18 years.
Crossfire Hurricane was a secret spy program against 30,055 American citizens. It was ruled illegal by the FISA court (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act).
A copy of the court's 99-page ruling is linked here:
According to Judge Rosemary Collyer, the FBI illegally and routinely gave 70 private contractors unrestricted access to secret spy data. No one knows who has this data and where it has gone.
Crossfire Hurricane was an FBI operation designed to bring down a President of the U.S.
