The FBI Just Got Sued, And It Could “Lead to Trump’s Impeachment”

A nationally renowned lawyer has filed suit against the FBI because they’re refusing to turn over the search warrant they obtained in October to gain access to Democratic Rep. Anthony Wiener’s emails over a possible connection to Hillary Clinton’s private email server within days of the 2016 general election.
The FBI’s Director Jim Comey distributed an infamous – and probably illegal – memo interfering with this year’s General Election on October 28th, 2016, but according to lawyer E. Randol Schoenberg, the FBI is violating the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by withholding disclosure of the federal search warrant a judge signed to enable their politically-driven, publicly announced investigation.
Schoenberg isn’t taking the FBI’s refusal to release the warrant lightly, which is why he filed the FOIA enforcement action. According to Schoenberg, a copy of the warrant has to specify what probable cause the FBI claimed was so important that they had to investigate the emails – which were discovered in an unrelated investigation regarding Wiener’s explicit messages with a minor – immediately, only to find nothing and now keep their reasoning secret.
