The FBI immediately responded to King, according to a February report from KRQE, with a letter requesting that the attorney general turn over “all intercepted wire communications” he had received and citing the federal law that prohibits disclosing communications known to have been intercepted illegally. King has argued that what he provided to the Reporter weren’t “secret documents” because “they were already in the hands of somebody who was a member of the public”—meaning Corwin.

Sources from the New Mexico GOP suggest more indictments may follow, particularly if the federal investigation reveals more information about the people to whom Estrada provided the illegally acquired emails.
