CA3: FBI doesn’t need permission from the states under 10A to get a SW in a bank robbery

“Johnson argues that ‘if a search warrant was required then the 10th Amendment requires the Department of Justice to obtain subject matter jurisdiction because the administration of criminal justice under our federal system has rested with the States.’ Pro Se Supp. Br. 26. However, Johnson cites only Fourth Amendment case law, and cites no authorities to support his reading of the Tenth Amendment. We note that ‘[t]he FBI is authorized “to detect and prosecute crimes against the United States.”’ United States v. Rodgers, 466 U.S. 475, 481, 104 S. Ct. 1942, 80 L. Ed. 2d 492 (1984) (quoting 28 U.S.C. § 533(1)).” United States v. Johnson, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 21909 (3d Cir. Aug. 7, 2018).*

Another Playpen warrant sustained. United States v. Tagg, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 132660 (E.D. Mich. Aug. 7, 2018).*
