FBI Wants To Go Easter Egg Hunting In Dead Reporter’s Closets And Underwear Drawers

By Brian Zick
Spencer Hsu for WaPo reports "The family of the late newspaper columnist Jack Anderson yesterday rejected a request by the FBI to turn over 50 years of files to agents who want to look for evidence in the prosecution of two pro-Israel lobbyists, as well as any classified documents Anderson had collected."

"Kevin [Jack's son] Anderson said the time period U.S. prosecutors are examining came after his father was battling Parkinson's disease and was no longer reporting for the column."

Agent Tommy Flanagan assured the Anderson family "only incidentally that if they came across classified materials they would have to seize them. "

Only incidentally. Yeah, that's the ticket.
