Obama administration fought to keep search warrant against Rosen secret


LINK

quote:

The Obama Administration fought to keep a search warrant for James Rosen’s private e-mail account secret, arguing to a federal judge that the government might need to monitor the account for a lengthy period of time.

The new details are revealed in a court filing detailing a back and forth between the Justice Department and the federal judges who oversaw the request to search a Gmail account belonging to Rosen, a reporter for Fox News. A 2009 article Rosen had written about North Korea sparked an investigation; Ronald C. Machen, Jr., the U.S. Attorney who is prosecuting Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, a former State Department adviser who allegedly leaked classified information to Rosen, insisted that the reporter should not be notified of the search and seizure of his e-mails, even after a lengthy delay.


quote:

The new documents show that two judges separately declared that the Justice Department was required to notify Rosen of the search warrant, even if the notification came after a delay. Otherwise: “The subscriber therefore will never know, by being provided a copy of the warrant, for example, that the government secured a warrant and searched the contents of her e-mail account,” Judge John M. Facciola wrote in an opinion rejecting the Obama Administration’s argument.

The Justice Departments own guidelines say they are to notify members of the press before searching emails.

You know it's bad when:

I still think that this has nothing to do with Rosen and everything to do with the White House trying to find out which of their employees was bad mouthing the President/leaking to make him look bad.

it was just 2 judges. If it had been three then I could see the problem but just 2, frick that.


Anyone know how Rosen eventually found out?

I love all these "scandals". Whatever it takes to keep the Rightists entertained for the next few years. Just like after Clinton beat Dole, IIRC.

Do you really expect an administration, ANY, to NOT try to defend itself?

What I expect is an administration, ANY, to obey the constitution. Do you disagree?

What?

No, this is the media vs the administration. Trampling on the right to a press is going to get you bad press.

You should start a thread that asks readers to vote "up" if they think Holder will resign or be let go, or "down" if they think he skates or gets a slap on the wrist.

I don't believe there's any way holder survives much longer. Fast and Furious should have been his Waterloo but the media ignored the story. Reportergate too close to home to ignore. Its unlikely it will been put forth as obama's decision but expect a resignation.

Yes these warrants are full of shite.

Proof that Obama is just another W (and you guys were not up W's arse when he was doing the same thing).

Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.
