My husband has interesting policies for interviewing FBI agents.

Um, I’ll make it easier. Never talk to law enforcement. “I understand you’re doing your job, and I am willing to fully cooperate. It would be irresponsible of me to do so before speaking to my attorney.”

It would seem to me that one could have a standard video recording sign on the front of the building notifying that all occupants are under video and audio surveillance. Then have a camera and audio recording of the meeting without having to produce the tape recording machine. That way you would have the meeting, record it accurately and then you can dispute what ever form was produced by the agent.

I suspect that there is some local or federal law that would prohibit that particular action. Any legal eagles want to comment?

18 USC 1001: it is a FELONY to not tell the truth to a government employee. But there is no symmetrical requirement that they not lie to you or penalty if they do.

Another thing about “lying to a federal employee”. If you tell them something you believe to be true which turns out later to be untrue, they can charge you.

If you present the FBI agent with the public servant questionnaire, they MUST fill it out in its entirety.

Short summary: The FBI will take crappy notes (they are by policy not allowed to tape record the interview) about the interview which they will swear under oath are 100% correct and then use those “official” notes to blackmail you into cooperating.

“.. basically under the presumption that they should have known federal agents were lying.”
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3033073/posts

“Arrested almost two years ago for allegedly knowingly selling guns to cartel members while operating a New Mexico gun store, all Reese family members were found not guilty on the most serious charges of conspiracy.
Additionally and significantly, money laundering charges against them were dismissed.
Husband Rick, wife Terri and son Ryin were convicted on a handful of lesser charges of making false statements on forms, basically under the presumption that they should have known federal agents were lying.
Rick and Ryin were released on bond in February and Terri was released on bond last year.
Son Remington was cleared of all charges, and a new trial for the outstanding convictions has been ordered following the judge’s ruling that the prosecutor withheld evidence from the jury.

Seems like more and more the FBI is shooting fish in barrels rather than doing actual work involving burning up shoe leather....

If they know you are recording the interview, they will simply refuse to interview you. After they try to intimidate you into shutting it off, of course.

Is there a similar form you can use with local or state agencies?

I believe that the form is good for any public servant. Look up “public servant questionnaire”
