Nov 12, 2012 Comments Off Chuck Biscuits

“In order for the FBI to be reading the e-mails of the chief spy of the United States, the director of the CIA, they would either need a search warrant from a federal judge in which case they would have to demonstrate to him that the general himself was involved with, or possessing evidence of a crime, or they would have to write their own search warrant under the PATRIOT Act in which case they’d have to satisfy themselves that the general was involved in terrorist activity. Both of these is absurd. Neither of them could form the basis for this.” – Judge Andrew Napolitano
