According to one New Mexico television station, the Sunspot Observatory was shut down last week in connection with a investigation into child porn.

A federal search warrant reveals that Sunspot Solar Observatory was shut down as FBI agents conducted computer forensic searches for child pornography.

The source of child pornography was traced to an IP address used at the observatory and a source within the building observed a computer with “not good” images on it, the warrant states.

An investigation by the FBI revealed that a janitor is the main suspect in the search, however he has not been charged with a crime even though his name in on the warrant.

This might also explain why the post office was searched, assuming they were trying to trace further porn material there.

    The deep state is indeed big, and includes janitors.

    “Never underestimate the ability of people to get involved in bizarro-world stuff.”
    I would note—a search warrant and an arrest-warrant, are two different things.

    (At least the mercury is safe.)
    (lest we forget who the president was for 8 years before Trump– the chi-coms, ALREADY have ALL our secrets! do a search for the W88 warhead, chi-coms stole those plans during the Clinton administration.)
