FBI Taped Senator Ted Stevens’ Phone Conversations

CNN reports that phone conversations between Alaska Republican Senator Ted Stevens and an oil executive guilty of bribery were taped by the FBI. Was this surveillance under a court-approved warrant? If so, it indicates some probable cause for suspicion of Senator Stevens, one of the least progressive members of the U.S. Senate. If this surveillance occurred without a warrant, on the other hand, it indicates that regular citizens like you and I are more vulnerable to government surveillance than we might like to think. Keep your eye looking through that knothole as this mystery continues to play itself out.
