The FBI has searched the apartment of former Reagan administration national security adviser Robert McFarlane for evidence of whether he lobbied for the government of Sudan, in violation of federal law.
The search warrant is on file in federal district court in Washington. It shows agents seized items this month including handwritten notes about Sudan and White House documents with classifications up to Top Secret.
In an accompanying affidavit, an FBI agent cites a host of emails between McFarlane and Sudanese government officials obtained prior to the search. The agent says he believes the emails are evidence that McFarlane was entering into an agreement to lobby for Sudan.
It is against the law for Americans to do business with Sudan because of its alleged support for terrorism, among other things.
