Portland Terrorism Suspect Seeks FBI Records

Portland Terrorism Suspect Seeks FBI Records

In the year before his arrest, terrorism suspect Mohamed Mohamud sent more than 11,000 text messages. He was watched by FBI agents, his calls were monitored and his emails were tracked.

Now, his defense team wants records of that surveillance — records the government has said it possesses but claims it doesn’t have to provide to Mohamud. The fight about the records is part of a larger battle the defense is waging as it seeks to keep certain statements made by Mohamud from a jury during a trial, scheduled for January.

Prosecutors say Mohamud was attempting to detonate a bomb, though his co-conspirators were undercover FBI agents and the bomb was fake.
