NO TRUE BILL
The FBI…gathering up as many people as they can to accuse. Reminds me of Amerithrax.
1. JOHNSTON AND MCCLOSKEY
All they did was give the FBI more ammo against them…even if they didn’t have a thing to do with it.
I’m so interested to see how this turns out. Will it be yet another Eric Holder fiasco?
“Johnston said two FBI agents, saying they were investigating the bomb threats, spoke to him and McCloskey on Wednesday about the legal dispute. McCloskey said that when she asked, “I assume we are persons of interest in the bomb threats,” one of the agents nodded yes.”
Ms. McCloskey said agents asked to examine the couple’s computers “to check to see if they had been connected to a server in foreign country.”
Most of the bomb threats have been emailed to reporters in Pittsburgh using an anonymous remailer that bounces off servers in other countries, making it virtually impossible to trace their origin.
Mr. Johnston said that for privacy reasons the couple did not agree to voluntarily surrender their computers… .”
Wise choice…privacy of their organization and attorney-client privileged materials AND their 4th Amendment rights. But, they’re bringing them to the grand jury upon the FBI’s threat of obtaining a search warrant.
So get a search warrant. Oh, that’s right…there’s no probable cause, otherwise they would have brought an affidavit to a judge before grand jury time.
I hope it’s all encrypted since they don’t have to decrypt it as recently decided … your crypt key is protected under the Fifth Amendment.
Now, they’ve arrested Mark Krangle on charges of harassment and terroristic threats. …although more bomb threats continue to come in after his arrest…so is this just a separate deal or will he be thrust into the machine too?
