Full James Rosen Search Warrant Application Unveiled
Reporters as enemies of the state?
The Washington Post reported today that, in the course of a leak investigation of a State Department employee who allegedly provided Fox News's James Rosen with classified information, the Obama Justice Department not only subpoenaed Rosen's private e-mails but also said that Rosen was "an aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator" in the alleged crime.
Rosen was not charged with any crime, but it is unprecedented for the government, in an official court document, to accuse a reporter of breaking the law for conducting the routine business of reporting on government secrets.
Here is the full forty-four-page Justice Department application for the search warrant of Rosen's Gmail account.
