FBI agents have searched the home of former Iowa state Sen. Kent Sorenson, once a top official in U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann’s 2012 presidential campaign, his lawyer said Wednesday.
The search, conducted two weeks ago, appeared to focus on communications between various campaign operatives and Sorenson, who abruptly quit as Bachmann’s Iowa campaign chairman in the closing days of the Iowa Republican caucus campaign and threw his support behind Ron Paul.

Sorenson has known he's under investigation for over a year. One would assume he's gotten rid of any incriminating evidence by now.
But he is a republican, so...maybe not.
