Friend in the FBI? Need Email Info? No Problem!!!

The Petraeus case keeps raising .........ahhh.......interesting.....questions.  Like, for example, under what authority did the FBI investigate cat-fight emails?

...The source reports that the emails did make one reference to Gen. David Petraeus, but it was oblique and offered no manifest suggestion of a personal relationship or even that he was central to the sender’s spite.
Kelley herself seemed mystified as to what was behind the emails, much less who sent them. 
“I don’t know who this person is and I don’t want to keep getting them,” she told the FBI, as recounted by the source. 
When the FBI friend showed the emails to the cyber squad in the Tampa field office, her fellow agents noted that the absence of any overt threats. 
“No, ‘I’ll kill you’ or ‘I'll burn your house down,’” the source says. “It doesn’t seem really that bad.”
The squad was not even sure the case was worth pursuing, the source says. 
“What does this mean? There’s no threat there. This is against the law?” the agents asked themselves by the source’s account.

Yah, so....if you don't like the emails you're getting, just press your pal in the FBI.  He'll find a law, someplace, somehow, which fits, and *problem solved*!!

It's even better when that FBI pal is a Tea Bircher Obama conspiracist who has Eric Cantor's home phone number.

c'mon, Dad, you know what authority the Fibbies use to snoop e-mails - it's called The Patriot Act; and even if such foolishness didn't exist on paper, they'd do it "on their own authority" under the guise of "national security".

As it's been for decades, since J Edgar, with or without legal/constitutional blessing.

As you know, Tim, I have NEVER been a fan of the "Patriot" Act. Sensenbrenner screwed us all with his acquiescence to the second version (after he voted against V.1).

Statism is comfortable for everyone who is in D.C., and that means every damn one of 'em.

Anony, I think that ALL Feebies shoul be Tea Party types, not just a few.

And we should all have Cantor's phone number, too, even though he's a lefty pretending to be a conservative.
