When Did the Government Know and How Did They Know It: Ulbricht Defense Calls for Evidentiary Hearing

From Joshua Dratel, Ross Ulbricht’s attorney, regarding the government’s explanation of how they found the Silk Road server:
As the internet community has quickly recognized, the government’s facile explanation of how it located the Silk Road servers raises more questions than it provides answers.  Offering a selective narrative is easy, but without documented, forensic proof Special Agent Tarbell’s declaration simply does not suffice. As more and more commentators point out, the technical, logical and practical inconsistencies in this version require scrutiny in order to resolve the issue and arrive at the truth.
To this end, evidentiary fact finding, not unilateral government claims, is required. Thus a hearing, with testimony and cross-examination of expert witnesses, is necessary to test the veracity and validity of the government’s assertions.
