Sorenson lawyer, Theodore Sporer, told the Register on Wednesday that FBI agents on Nov. 20 took computers and other materials from his client's home. 

“We were not notified that he was the target of any investigation,” Sporer told the Register. “They took computers and things that would be used to verify or validate communications with presidential entities.”

Agents were at Sorenson's home for several hours, and took computers belonging to his children. 

“I assume it’s just kind of a dragnet to sweep for anything they could possibly find,” Sporer said. “They’re very thorough.”

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
