Report: FBI Searches Home of Attorney in Warrantless Wiretap Program Case
Sunday , August 05, 2007
WASHINGTON FBI agents searched the home of former Justice Department lawyer Thomas Tamm last week in an effort to determine who leaked details of the warrantless eavesdropping program to the news media, Newsweek magazine reported Sunday, citing two anonymous legal sources.
The agents, who had obtained a classified search warrant, took Tamm's desktop computer, two laptops belonging to his children and some of Tamm's personal files, said Newsweek, which granted anonymity to the two sources because they did not want to be identified talking about an open case.
Tamm left the department last year. He had worked in the department's Office of Intelligence Policy and Review, a secretive unit that oversees surveillance of terrorist and espionage targets, according to Newsweek.

Treason is a serious offense. It could get you killed.
Since when, if they didn’t execute Aldrich Ames, they won’t execute anybody anymore for treason.
Good. I hope they start prosecuting some of these leakers.
It’s about time.

Did anybody vet this turd? Man, where is the common sense?
It's down a bit on the page.
It looks like Tamm is a Democrat or at least a big critic of the White House. With his complaints about the firing of the U.S. Attorney's, it's not hard to see him leaking to the press about the wireless phone taps.
Name: Thomas M. Tamm
Hometown: Potomac, Maryland USA
Dear Eric: Is not the administration's position that they would not permit the U.S. Attorney to prosecute a Congressional Contempt referral an implicit admission that they allow politics to impact prosecutions? They are admitting that they would interfere with the independent judgment of a prosecutor on a specific case. I suggest that this is precisely what the firings of the U.S. Attorneys are ultimately about. Yes, they serve at the pleasure of the president, but they do not prosecute at the pleasure of the president. The White House is guilty of taking the blindfold off lady justice, not just covering her breasts. I am a former DOJ lawyer, for what that is worth.
I hope if he was the leaker, they nail his sorry butt
If he’s tried and found guilty, he should face a firing squad.
according to a document at DOJ, he received an award in 2000 which would indicate he was there during the clinton years.
Seems like lawyers are the treasonist Left’s moles in most government agencies.
They need to be searching the hard drives and email and phone records of Schumer-mole James Comey — there’s little doubt that he’s been involved in leaking, and if he gets nailed the Demagogues will face the dilemma of whether they defend their mole or run for the hills.....
We live in a post treason age.
