Obama’s State Department was spying on private citizens for having a different political view from his Marxist-driven totalitarianism. My question is, why haven’t there been any indictments? Justice?

Judicial Watch: State Dept. Records Confirm Ukraine Embassy Was Spying On Journalists, Trump Supporters
By: Sara C arter, September 2, 2020:
SaraACarter.com last October, that the Ukrainian Embassy, under former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch ‘monitored, in potential violation of the law’ journalists, a member of President Donald Trump’s family and others they deemed allies of the president.
In October, Judicial Watch issued a Freedom of Information Act request to the State Department asking for “any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the monitoring of any U.S.-based journalist, reporter, or media commentator by any employee or office of the Department of State between January 1, 2019 and the present.”
A source with knowledge confirmed to SaraACarter.com that Yovanovitch, an Obama appointee, had allegedly requested the monitoring of this reporter. A source, with knowledge of the information, said “Sara Carter, as well as The Hill’s former columnist John Solomon, among others, were being monitored.”
In one email – many of which were heavily redacted – dated March 27, 2019, monitoring developing U.S. social media narratives on Ukraine, the Digital Team listed the names of those being monitored, including me.
Thank you! Below are some of the Twitter users with large followings whom we’ve seen tweeting on (and/or discussing on TV) Ukraine related issues over the past several days.They all have verified Twitter accounts that should be pretty easy to spot.
Sara A Carter
Donald Trump Jr.
In the email, the Ukrainian Embassy officials also noted the search phrases that would be used while monitoring the 13 reporters and Trump allies.
Thanks very much for your notes. The English-language Twitter search phrases we’re currently using for this issue are:
Yovanovich (common misspelling)
Yovanovitch was a career diplomat. She also served at embassies in Kyrgyzstan and Armenia. She was appointed ambassador to Ukraine by Obama in 2016 and was recalled by the State Department in May.
Last year, Yovanovitch testified behind closed doors during the House impeachment inquiry against Trump.
