New documents exclusive to USA TODAY show FBI Agents gave their informants permission to break the law several thousands of times in 2011.
However, since then, the agents have authorized an average of 15 crimes a day, including everything from buying and selling illegal drugs to bribing government officials and plotting robberies.

USA TODAY was able to obtain a copy of the FBI’s 2011 report under the Freedom of Information Act. While it does not spell out the types of crimes the agents authorized or how serious they were, it showed that the FBI was responsible for only about 10 percent of criminal cases prosecuted in federal court in 2011.
