ABSTRACT
The author comments on the U.S. Constitution Amendment IV on the right of lawmakers to be secure in their earmarking work and on the effect of unreasonable searches and seizures. He asserted that it is a well-established principle of liberal democracies of which citizens should be free from state spies. However, it prevented journalists from taking copies of public documents and slowed the process of disclosures.
