Fishing of this nature constitutes invasion of privacy. You have a right to be secure in your person, houses, papers, and effects. I even think that is written down somewhere.
here's how it works-you get a tip or hear a rumor and then try to get the facts

There is no lead. The vaunted investigative journalists at the NYT are hunting for a lead to smear a Trump nominee. They are too lazy to review the emails themselves, they want them filtered so they can "report" distortions out of context.

One paper wants all the emails. The other wants keywords: “liberal,” “abortion,” “gay,” and “federalist,” while also explicitly asking for e-mails containing the names of certain individuals.

That's your idea of specific?

What exactly is "good christian folk".

This is exactly what they will do. One "new organization" (i.e. propaganda wing of the DNC) will get an email with some meaningless topic and report on it as much ado about nothing. The the other "new org" will take that report, change the context and find the next "smoking gun" to attack Kavanaugh, Trump and every other Republican they can go after.

And this is what is known today as journalism! And those like Salty will be here defending it as long as it is used to go after Conservatives.
