    A Senate committee has passed a bill that would require authorities to have a search warrant before they go through your emails or other electronic communications. Believe it or not, as it stands right now they only need a search warrant from a judge for emails less than six months old, under a law passed in 1986.

    The full Senate is expected to take up the measure early next year.

    Judge Andrew Napolitano joined Shepard Smith on Studio B today, saying it is “nonsense” for the government to claim that the bill would delay investigations by a significant amount of time.

    Wonder if Reid will actually bring it up for a vote?

    You all should think about the difference between "go through" and "offer as evidence in a legal proceding." If the NSA reads your email and stamps any resulting documentation, "top secret," who will be there to complain?
