A massive trove of documents was released by The Intercept on Wednesday that gave insight into the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s “secret rules,” a broad scope of powers that detailed everything from surveillance of journalists to treatment of informants.

As a government institution that is financed by American taxpayers, one might think that the FBI would be more public with its actions. However, the latest FBI files—which are classified—paint a picture of an overreaching agency that has no accountability.

Investigative Journalist Glenn Greenwald noted that these revelations carry a particularly significant weight given the latest election, and the new president:

“It shines a bright light on the vast powers of this law enforcement agency, particularly when it comes to its ability to monitor dissent and carry out a domestic war on terror, at the beginning of an era highly likely to be marked by vociferous protest and reactionary state repression.”
