In recent months I received an email from Google stating my emails had been subpoenaed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. After seeing someone else who had their emails subpoenaed as well, I decided to look into this further through a lawyer friend. He suggested putting in for an FOIA request with my name and alias which he charged me 25 dollars to take care of. He had hoped by being a lawyer he would get better results. This is the part of the response sent to me afterward. I have not included some personal info that was in the letter.
