Agents downloaded identical videos from the Gnutella network, and found one that depicted a man performing sexual acts with a prepubescent girl. 

On Wednesday, law enforcement agents descended on Loskarn's Washington, D.C. residence and executed a search warrant. They retrieved a portable hard drive -- which they believe Loskarn had placed on a snowy ledge outside one of the home's windows when they arrived. On the hard drive, authorities found "hundreds of videos depicting underage boys engaged in sexually explicit conduct," among other videos containing child pornography. 

Loskarn was expected to appear in court Thursday to face charges of possession and distribution of child pornography. Alexander announced on Wednesday that he had fired Loskarn, and replaced him with a new chief of staff.
