NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge has directed the U.S. government to show him any search warrant application used to gain access to a new batch of Hillary Clinton’s emails just before the election.
New York Judge P. Kevin Castel (kas-TEHL’) ordered the government Tuesday to turn it over by late Thursday in case he decides any portion of it must be made public.
A Los Angeles-based lawyer who specializes in recovering works of art stolen by the Nazis sued to get the search warrant and related papers used by the FBI to obtain a Clinton’s aide’s emails. He filed the suit after making a Freedom of Information Act request.
Justice Department lawyer Jennie Kneedler says the government opposes the request to unseal documents. She says there’s no First Amendment right to them.
