Subject:        	Dick Armey says Carnivore is illegal

The front page of today's Wash Post quotes House Majority Leader Dick
Armey as saying that there is no doubt Carnivore is illegal under
current wiretapping laws.  The House Judiciary Comm. will hold
hearings on Carnivore and Omnivore on Monday


The online version of the Post also reports that the FBI has also
allowed reporters a look-see at Carnivore.  Not much detail, however.
