    The cops involved in the shooting of Jacob Blake — which touched off a fresh wave of angry, anti-police sentiment across the country — were attempting to arrest him for violating a restraining order stemming from an alleged sexual assault, The Post has learned. Blake, 29, was forbidden from going to the Kenosha home of his alleged victim from the May 3 incident, and police were dispatched Sunday following a 911 call saying he was there. The officers were aware he had an open warrant, according to dispatch records, though it’s not clear if they knew the specific allegations of...

    A top FBI lawyer who fabricated evidence in a federal spy warrant against Trump campaign affiliate Carter Page is expected to plead guilty to federal charges brought by U.S. Attorney John Durham. Kevin Clinesmith, who is expected to admit to deliberately fabricating evidence in a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant application, used to spy on a former campaign affiliate of President Donald Trump, was a top attorney in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Office of General Counsel (OGC) and a key agency attorney under fired former FBI Director James Comey. Clinesmith is the first individual to be charged as part...
  • Police Killing of Breonna Taylor Fuels Calls to End No-Knock Warrants

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 24 May 2020 | Arian Campo-Flores and Sabrina Siddiqui
    Growing outcry over the police killing of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old black emergency-room technician, in her Louisville, Ky., home is stoking calls to end the use of no-knock warrants like the one officers secured to raid her apartment. The Federal Bureau of Investigation said on Thursday it was opening an investigation into Ms. Taylor’s death. The same day the Louisville police chief, Steve Conrad, said he would retire. Earlier this month Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear urged state and federal investigators to review the Louisville Metro Police Department’s internal investigation of the shooting. U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and U.S. Rep. Thomas...
  • Court Says Removing a Police GPS Tracker From Your Car Isn’t Theft

    Back in 2012, the US Supreme Court declared it was illegal for law enforcement to attach a GPS tracker to a suspect’s car without first getting a warrant. But in 2018, cops in Indiana charged a suspected drug dealer with theft after he removed such a tracking device from his SUV, triggering a legal debate over whether you can legally remove such devices. As it turns out, you most assuredly can. A new unanimous ruling from the Indiana Supreme Court has declared that the suspect in question did not “steal” the government-owned device, and that law enforcement should have known...
  • If FBI was routinely cutting corners on FISA warrants, Comey will look even worse

    NY Post ^ | 12/21/19 | Editorial board
    Now that we know FBI agents deceived the court to get the warrants to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page, the big question is: Was this the exception, or the rule? That is, has the bureau taken to regularly lying in its 1,500 requests a year for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act wiretaps - or did higher-ups opt to go rogue in this particular case? **SNIP** The FISA law rightly allows for secret wiretaps to guard the nation’s security, with strict rules meant to prevent abuse. Yet here was massive abuse in a case of the utmost sensitivity, a presidential...

    Dive Brief: Illinois State Sen. Martin Sandoval has resigned from his position as chair of the State Senate's Transportation Committee amid a federal fraud and corruption investigation related to state construction work, the Associated Press reported. The Democratic senator is still listed as a member of the committee, however, as of Oct. 15. The move came after the details of a federal search warrant revealed that the FBI last month combed Sandoval's offices and home for information related to architect Cesar Santoy; Santoy's architecture firm, Studio ARQ; red-light camera program company SafeSpeed; lobbyists; construction companies; and employees of the Illinois...

    FBI agent Peter Strzok secretly manipulated the warrant to search Anthony Weiner’s laptop in order to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution. This is just one of the shocking details that have emerged about how James Comey’s FBI and Democrats covered for Anthony Weiner’s sex crimes in order to protect Hillary Clinton from exposure and prosecution during the presidential election. Weiner was even getting paid to work for a firm inside a known Democratic National Committee satellite office alongside a DNC official. (RELATED: Woman Found Dead, Stuffed Inside Garbage Chute At Anthony Weiner’s Apartment Building). Meanwhile, James Comey incredulously claimed that...

    Full Title: FBI Serves Incredibly Broad Warrant To 8chan, Demanding Info On All Users Who Responded To A Shooter's Post Internet hellhole 8chan has been hit with a federal search warrant. The site, created to serve those who felt 4chan's nearly-nonexistent moderation was too restrictive, has been front and center recently due to its hosting of manifestos by mass shooters who apparently frequented the site. In this case, an investigation into a shooting at a California mosque has led the FBI to the pages of 8chan. Postings at the site -- along with some at Facebook -- have linked the...

    When detectives in a Phoenix suburb arrested a warehouse worker in a murder investigation last December, they credited a new technique with breaking open the case after other leads went cold. The police told the suspect, Jorge Molina, they had data tracking his phone to the site where a man was shot nine months earlier. They had made the discovery after obtaining a search warrant that required Google to provide information on all devices it recorded near the killing, potentially capturing the whereabouts of anyone in the area. Investigators also had other circumstantial evidence, including security video of someone firing...

    The woman who presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway says physically assaulted her in October is married to the CEO of a $43 million environmental charity and manages volunteers for a nonprofit that boasts 'empathy' as 'a priority skill' for 'living and working together in this radically different world.' DailyMail.com is picturing Beth Inabinett, 63, for the first time. She faces a March trial for second-degree assault in Montgomery County, Maryland. Inabinett could also be charged with a federal crime, according to a Justice Department official. The case stems from an incident during a birthday party at a restaurant near Washington, D.C....

    Image from CBS58.com In Houston, on Monday, 28 January, a no-knock search warrant resulted in the wounding of four police officers and the death of middle aged couple who had owned their home for 20 years. The deaths and woundings seem to have come from the use of the no-knock warrant. There have been many problems with no-knock warrants. Thousands of no-knock warrants are used each year. In Milwaukee, on 6 February, a Milwaukee tactical team was serving a search warrant in an investigation of illegal drug and firearms sales. It is unclear if the warrant was a no-knock...

    Congressional investigators have confirmed that a top FBI official met with Democratic Party lawyers to talk about allegations of Donald Trump-Russia collusion weeks before the 2016 election, and before the bureau secured a search warrant targeting Trump’s campaign. Former FBI general counsel James Baker met during the 2016 season with at least one attorney from Perkins Coie, the Democratic National Committee’s private law firm. That’s the firm used by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to secretly pay research firm Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence operative, to compile a dossier of uncorroborated raw intelligence alleging Trump...

It is unknown if Wilson has been legally served. It seems unlikely. Cody Wilson has been a thorn in the side of those who want a disarmed population for the last six years.  His exploits with 3D printed guns...

    The US Supreme Court has ruled in favor of digital privacy. In a 5-4 decision on Friday the justices decided that police need warrants to gather phone location data as evidence for trials. The Supreme Court reversed and remanded the Sixth Circuit court's decision. Carpenter v. United States is the first case about phone location data that the Supreme Court has ruled on. That makes it a landmark decision regarding how law enforcement agencies can use technology as they build cases. The court heard arguments in the case on Nov. 29. The dispute dates back to a 2011 robbery in...
