McCullagh lists multiple federal agencies that would have "civil subpoena authority" to access digital correspondence under the tweaked legislation. He reports that these agencies would include, among others, the Federal Reserve, the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Maritime Commission.

The Fed Reserve is no more part of the Federal Govt. than is Federal Express. In other words, they aren't federal. Neither do they have reserves but that's besides the point.

James Baker, the associate deputy attorney general, has publicly warned that requiring a warrant to obtain stored e-mail could have an 'adverse impact' on criminal investigations."

Fear mongering, police-state words such as these should be met with great skepticism and caution. The word 'criminal' in this case could be anything he wants it to be, or what others years from now decide. Everything you say in your personal e-mails can and will only be used against you by the authorities. Who are the terrorists?
