FBI demands USA Today hand over names of EVERYONE who read story about two FBI agents killed during Florida child porn raid but newspaper REFUSES First Amendment ‘violation’
- The article was about a child porn raid that killed two of its agents – the suspect committed suicide afterwards
- The raid was at 6am and USA Today published at 9.30am
- The subpoena asks for the IP addresses and phone numbers of everyone who clicked on the story between 8.03pm and 8.38pm that night
- The FBI Agent who issued it – J. Brooke Donahue – doesn’t say why he wants that specific information, just that it will aide an ongoing investigation
- USA Today’s owner, Gannett, is pushing back, calling the subpoena a violation of the First Amendment
