‘I Am Appalled’: Attorney Who Sued to Release FBI’s Clinton Warrant Says It Shows No Probable Cause
This kind of thing is about to get much much worse. We have got to stand up for our institutional protections. Due Process matters. Equal Protection matters. Probable cause protects us all. Republicans, Democrats, all the religious, those who dress differently, those distinctive ethnicities.
California defense attorney E. Randal Schoenberg, who successfully sued to have a search warrant for Hillary Clinton’s emails released, said on Tuesday that the order did not meet the standard of probable cause.
The warrant which was unsealed on Tuesday suggests that federal magistrate Kevin Fox in Manhattan granted the Oct. 30 warrant to search Anthony Weiner’s laptop “based exclusively on the FBI’s contention” that it may have contained classified emails exchanged between Clinton and Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, according to Politico.
Schoenberg wrote on Facebook that he was “appalled” after seeing the warrant because the FBI had presented “nothing at all” that amounted to probable cause.
