According to the Tampa Bay Times, the FBI searched the home of reporter & media consultant Tim Burke and his wife, Tampa City Council member Lynn Hurtak, regarding computer hacks at Fox News.

The search happened earlier this month and Hurtak said “it appears that the search warrant executed at our home on Monday was solely related to my husband’s work as a journalist.”

From Spectrum Bay News 9 earlier this month:

Hurtak’s husband, Tim Burke, is the director of video at The Daily Beast.

According to Spectrum Bay News 9’s partner newspaper the Tampa Bay Times, FBI agents executed the search warrant on Hurtak’s home at 6 a.m. and left just before 4 p.m.

Agents took computers, phones and other equipment belonging to Burke.

Burke runs a media company called Burke Communications.

According to the Times, Burke said he was not certain why the agents came to his home but did say it was his name on the search warrant.

The Tampa Bay Times obtained a letter that a Tampa federal prosecutor sent to Fox News.

It appears the criminal investigation into the computer hacks at the cable news network is related to leaked unaired video of Tucker Carlson’s show.
