5 reporters involved in the story. Records of 100 Reporters Seized.That's better. You'll get the hang of it.Not a wiretap. Not bugging Congress. Not illegal. Probably too wide a focus. Might be a violation of Justice Department regulation. Sort of a subjective call, though. Who's too say what's "too broad" or "too narrow" or "just right." And prosecutors always ask for more rather than less.100 reporters? The five reporters on the story each have at least three editors and/or supervisors and a few assistants among them. Not hard to reach 100. I asked this question on another board:You're the U.S. attorney assigned to find out who leaked the name of a CIA agent who infiltrated Al Qaeda to the AP. You've got three pieces of information: the story, the names of the reporters and their associates, and a list of people who knew about the CIA operation and the identity of the agent. (None of them are named Dick Cheney or Scooter Libby so the case is a tough one.) What do you do?
