By Steve Bruscato The FBI has become the go-to agency for the agency that investigates crimes.
In 2016, the agency had 3,086 people on its payroll, including 3,058 special agents, according to data provided to the Associated Press.
In 2015, the number was 1,934.
Agents are trained to investigate crimes and take a wide range of investigative techniques, including wiretaps, sting operations, undercover operations, and undercover investigations.
The Bureau has a number of programs that aim to build relationships with businesses, individuals, and political campaigns.
But as its role in the criminal justice system grows, the FBI is also grappling with its own ethical questions.
For instance, in the wake of the recent scandal involving the FBI’s mishandling of the Clinton emails, the bureau announced it would expand its work on the opioid crisis, expanding its opioid task forces to include the states where they are active.
But that is also creating a new set of ethical concerns.
“We have a number areas where the FBI, specifically in this area, is dealing with potential violations of the FBI Act and the ethics requirements,” the head of the agency’s ethics unit, Stephen Hardy, told the Associated Post in February.
The bureau has come under scrutiny recently for its handling of the 2016 presidential election.
The FBI began investigating the Trump campaign after it was discovered that a pro-Trump group had used hacked materials from a Democratic opponent’s campaign to spread its message on social media.
The campaign was also accused of leaking Democratic National Committee emails to Wikileaks.
At the time, FBI Director Christopher Wray said that his office was looking into the possibility that the Trump-campaign had been involved in the Russian interference, but that it was not clear whether the FBI had evidence that they were.
“I think it’s important to understand that the scope of the investigation is limited and, frankly, it’s not going to be able to address everything, but we have our work cut out for us in this particular area,” he said at the time.
The news was not all bad for the bureau.
After the election, President Trump signed into law a bill that made it a crime to promote a conspiracy, a charge that has since been amended to make it a felony to promote conspiracy.
But even as the FBI continues to investigate the Trump election, the department has also been cracking down on journalists, especially those who report on its work.
In December, it shut down The Intercept, the website run by Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras, and a number other outlets.
The Intercept was a news outlet that was critical of the Trump administration and the Republican Party, but also was critical to the progressive left.
It published stories that questioned the legitimacy of Trump’s election victory, and had a large and vocal following of online supporters.
But the FBI raided the site after it published an article critical of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, which led to his resignation.
The site was then targeted by a series of threats on social networking platforms, including Twitter, which prompted the website to shut down.
The U.S. Justice Department said in February that it had shut down four Twitter accounts that it said were being used by anti-government groups, including the Oath Keepers.
The raids have also been met with resistance from some Democrats, who see them as an attempt to shut off their sources of information.
“When you are using a reporter’s name, or a pseudonym, for a purpose, then you are violating federal law,” Democratic Representative Maxine Waters told the New York Times.
The Trump administration has also made waves by making arrests in the United States.
Earlier this year, it arrested five men suspected of trying to kill President Donald Trump in San Francisco.
And on February 3, a day after Trump was inaugurated, a man who claimed to be a former member of the military in a military training program was arrested and charged with making false statements to federal agents about a possible attack on the White House.
