Probably this is significant. I did not yet read through it.

FBI Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide


The FBI today is posting its Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (DIOG). The DIOG was approved on December 16, 2008, and sets policy and procedures to guide the Bureau in implementing the Attorney General Guidelines signed last year. At the time the Attorney General Guidelines and the DIOG were issued, the FBI committed to Congress and the public that it would make as much of the DIOG publicly available as possible, consistent with the need to confidentially maintain information deemed law enforcement sensitive.

The DIOG establishes policy that guides all of the FBI’s domestic operations, whether counterterrorism, counterintelligence, criminal or cyber crime. It is designed to ensure that all of the FBI’s investigative activities are carried out with full adherence to the Constitution and federal law. As you read this document, you will see the FBI takes very seriously its mission to protect the American public from national security threats and crime and does so while respecting and upholding Constitutional rights, civil liberties, and privacy.
