On MSnbC, which has several serious problems, TONIGHT, distantly related
to the Wapo story today, someone brought up the time last June 6 or so
that the FBI had 2 (or 3?) agents at maralago and they were explicitly
barred from searching one room, the rooom where it turned out a lot of
the secret documents were stored.
I've heard this before, of course, but now I've formed the right
question in my mind. Wouldn't the normal action for the FBI or any
police force be, when told they can't search a specific area, when they
already have reason to think contraband is in that aree, to stay where
they are, watching the door to the room, and call someone to get a
search warrant. IIUC they had enough basis to get one that very day.
This happens on television all the time. Do you mind if we search? If
you don't agree, we'll just have to wait until we get a search warrant.
And then the perp etc. usually agrees. That's realistic, isn't it?
I think you can tell, but just to be sure:
I am not a lawyer.
