Ha ha! Oh, that’s rich.

Apparently the fourth amendment, a dead letter for you and me, is still supposed to apply for the benefit of the rich’n’famous.

Was it legal for the FBI to expand the Weiner email search to target Hillary Clinton’s emails?

If these facts so far are accurate, the FBI may have violated the Fourth Amendment in expanding the investigation from Weiner to Clinton. Here’s the problem. If the FBI was searching Weiner’s computer, it presumably had a warrant authorizing the search of the computer only for Weiner’s communications with underage girls. If that is correct, going from that narrow search to a broader search of Clinton’s emails raises two potential problems for the FBI.

But what if it’s for the children?

    On the plus side this makes for interesting news coverage and a potential plot for a movie of the week.

    TGIANAL, but the “plain sight” rule should apply. Assuming a warrant to search folders and files for criminal activity, if they ran across something else while looking…

    we have pop corn and beer ready. Fact is, my main prep items are pop corn and beer so we’re ready for anything. Glad your shoulder is improving.

    Mike, we going to do some of that popcorn Chicago style? Not much of a beer drinker, so I will bring my own drinking material.

    Judy, we have provisions to make really loud popcorn. I try to keep the beer away from the loud popcorn machine……..

To the stake with the heretic!
