One of the people who chose to not get involved in a lawsuit about the invasion of her privacy is this foreign born former A list celebrity who got naked quite often.

She was aware that for several years, this federal security agency circulated two s.e.x recordings of her they were able to get from her cloud while she was visiting with this whistleblower.

She reached a private settlement with the government two years ago.

CIA spying on Assange “illegally” swept up US lawyers, journalists: Lawsuit

CIA surveillance of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange while he was sheltering in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London included recording his conversations with American lawyers, journalists and doctors, and copying private data from visitors’ phones and other devices, violating constitutional protections, according to a lawsuit filed Monday.

The suit – filed on behalf of four Americans who visited Assange – seeks damages personally from then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo for violating the plaintiffs’ Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure. The suit also seeks damages against a Spanish security firm contracted to protect the embassy, and its CEO, alleging that they abused their position to illegally spy on visitors and passed on the surveillance data they collected to the CIA, which is also named a defendant in the suit.

Legal experts, including a former senior intelligence official, told Newsweek that the allegations in the lawsuit, if proven, show the CIA crossed lines drawn to protect American citizens from surveillance by overzealous intelligence agencies.

Assange, an Australian who had repeatedly published classified U.S. documents, was “a legitimate foreign intelligence target,” said Tim Edgar, a professor at Brown University and formerly the deputy privacy and civil liberties officer for the Office of Director of National Intelligence.

Recording the conversations foreign targets have with Americans, known as “incidental collection,” is a familiar problem for U.S. intelligence agencies, Edgar said. There are well-established, if not always completely effective, procedures for “minimization” – removing private or identifying information about Americans from surveillance transcripts before they are distributed.

But copying content from visitors’ phones was different, Edgar said. “That seems to me like a very excessive amount of collection. What’s the expected intelligence value from that? It’s a high bar to justify,” Edgar said, “If it’s just everyone who visited Assange, then it’s not like you have a specific reason to look at a particular phone.”

“It’s another example of how intrusive intelligence collection has become in the digital age,” he said, noting that U.S. person guidelines for most intelligence agencies were originally developed in the 1970’s, “before we put our whole lives on our phones.” – Source
