Using a dubious search warrant, armed agents seized the records of a reporter who investigated problems within Homeland Security. This happened during a predawn raid of her family home!
Reporter Audrey Hudson (pictured) is the award-winning investigative journalist, formerly for The Washington Times, who had exposed problems in the Homeland Security Department's Federal Air Marshal Service.
Ms. Hudson was apparently targeted for exposing problems in the Homeland Security Department’s Federal Air Marshal Service as Maryland state police and federal agents used a search warrant in an unrelated criminal investigation to seize her private reporting files.
Reporter Audrey Hudson said the investigators, who included an agent for Homeland's Coast Guard service, took her private notes and government documents that she had obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
The warrant, obtained by the Times, offered no specific permission to seize reporting notes or files.
