    State Dept. officials told they broke law by monitoring Americans during Ukraine scandal, newly unredacted email shows

    State Department officials were explicitly ordered in spring 2019 to stop tracking 13 prominent Americans' social media accounts for information about the Joe Biden-Ukraine scandal because the monitoring violated federal law, according to emails that were originally redacted to hide the concerns from the American public.

    "We are barred by law from actively monitoring the accounts of American citizens in aggregate — and particularly from identifying and monitoring individual, selected accounts," a State Department official wrote in an April 1, 2019 email to officials in Washington and the U.S. embassy in Kiev.

    Tom Fitton, the Judicial Watch president, accused the State Department of editing the documents to hide the truth from the American people.

    "It looks like this material was blacked out not for legal reason but for political reasons: namely to help Joe Biden," Fitton said. "Judicial Watch first exposed this illicit spy operation against Trump world, and the coverup of this material by the State Department for over a year is inexcusable. Our lawyers will review this new material and consider the legal ramifications."
