The information that first came out described him as a magistrate judge. Apparently, this was incorrect.<quoted text>
You just got caught in another lie Carol, it wasn't some "lowly magistrate judge" who approved the warrant it was Chief Judge Royce Lamberth of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Appeals don't go down the judicial food chain stupid, they go up.
According to 18 USC 2703;
(b) Contents of Wire or Electronic Communications in a Remote Computing Service.
(1)A governmental entity may require a provider of remote computing service to disclose the contents of any wire or electronic communication to which this paragraph is made applicable by paragraph (2) of this subsection
(A)without required notice to the subscriber or customer, if the governmental entity obtains a warrant issued using the procedures described in the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure (or, in the case of a State court, issued using State warrant procedures) by a court of competent jurisdiction; or
(B)with prior notice from the governmental entity to the subscriber or customer if the governmental entity
(i)uses an administrative subpoena authorized by a Federal or State statute or a Federal or State grand jury or trial subpoena; or
(ii)obtains a court order for such disclosure under subsection (d) of this section;
except that delayed notice may be given pursuant to section 2705 of this title.
So no, Carol, notice was in fact not required since a warrant was issued.
Why are you always lying?
But since that's been cleared up...
Why did Holder go "judge shopping" to illegally confiscate a journalist's emails and phone records?
Why did Judge Lamberth overturn the first two judges' refusal to give Holder permission to break the law?
These are two indisputable facts. Got answers?
