Stop It...

L.A.-based Lawyer Sues FBI Over Clinton Email Warrant

First of all, people do stupid things all the time, not all those things deserve a story on Fox News. I could just leave it at that. But I clicked on the article, and it angered me, so I will post about it. That is what blogging is all about.

I work with lawyers all the time - and frequently I find that they can not see the forrest for the trees. This clown is suing the FBI to see the search warrant that lead to the search of Anthony Weiner's devices (phones and computers).

Again, I should stop right there - he read an article in the NY Times, and based on that, filed a lawsuit.

Several quick points - he wants to see the search warrant to see if there was probable cause, and mentions that probable cause is mentioned in the Constitution.  A search warrant is a document that a law enforcement officer provides to a judge proving...probable cause. Next - the probable cause he seeks was pretty much all over the press - Anthony Weiner was using his device (phone or computer) to send messages to an underage person. The nature of those messages made the transmission to a minor...a crime.

But, then again, we live in a country where people sent millions of dollars to the accounts of a person who received 1% of the presidential votes, to fund a recount.

If a magistrate or a judge signs the warrant, there's PC. He doesn't have standing, and he should know that.
