This is what happened to Washington D.C. attorney Wendell Belew in August 2004 before the New York Times exposed the wiretapping ordeal to the world.

Belew had given a copy of the document to Washington Post and then they handed over the copy to the FBI.

Any updates on this case? I have searched but can't find any. I hope this one doesn't get swept under the rug.
