FBI demands USA Today hand over details of EVERYONE who read online story about two FBI agents killed during Florida child porn raid, but newspaper REFUSES First Amendment 'violation' The article was about a child porn raid that killed two of its agents - the suspect committed suicide afterwards The raid was at 6am and USA Today published at 9.30am The subpoena asks for the IP addresses and phone numbers of everyone who clicked on the story between 8.03pm and 8.38pm that night The FBI Agent who issued it - J. Brooke Donahue - doesn't say why he wants that specific information, just that it will aide an ongoing investigation USA Today's owner, Gannett, is pushing back, calling the subpoena a violation of the First Amendment
