Hold on, Breitbart just put out the names of the FBI agents who did the search? Are you kidding me? And presumably Breitbart got leaked this search warrant from Trump, unredacted?

Top comments on Trump forums right now are just trying to ID the specific FBI agents who were part of and signed off on the raid so they can be "helicopter passengers," a reference to Chilean dictator Augusta Pinochet murdering dissidents by throwing them out of helicopters.

Reporters: please listen to me.

The Espionage Act encompasses a ton of crimes that have nothing to do with "spying". It's a stupid name for the law that is a century old. Stop talking about espionage.

It's about unlawful storing of information relating to the national defense.

Key point:

Two sections of the Espionage Act (§ 793(d) & (f)) apply even to those lawfully in possession of national security information - and prohibit certain conduct even by those who were entitled to have the underlying material in the first place.

People are focusing on the Espionage Act, but another law cited in the warrant is intriguing: 18 USC §1519. It's about document crimes that are part of obstructing an investigation or some other federal matter. So what is the thing that DOJ thinks Trump was trying to impede?
