The CIA commits over 100 000 serious crimes per year says congressional report.

The Intelligence Community in the 21st Century" by the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, US House of Representatives (1996):

congressional report on CIA crimes


quote:
The CS [clandestine service] is the only part of the IC [intelligence community], indeed of the government, where hundreds of employees on a daily basis are directed to break extremely serious laws in countries around the world in the face of frequently sophisticated efforts by foreign governments to catch them. A safe estimate is that several hundred times every day (easily 100,000 times a year) DO [Directorate of Operations] officers engage in highly illegal activities (according to foreign law) that not only risk political embarrassment to the US but also endanger the freedom if not lives of the participating foreign nationals and, more than occasionally, of the clandestine officer himself.
