If there was a home search, then either there was a warrant, or these were the dumbest FBI agents and us attorneys in history. I'm betting the former.
To be fair, I could be wrong. I'm just reading as well. Just read this in the WP:

Quote:
Law enforcement officials offered conflicting accounts of the significance of the FBI’s seizure of materials from Broadwell’s home. Officials said Broadwell provided access to the residence, which the FBI requested on Sunday, and turned over computers, files and other material. She was not present when the search occurred over several hours Monday night
So perhaps all involved are cooperating without involving the courts. I can't imagine any lawyer in the world advising a client to allow a search without a warrant, but who knows. I'm not sure anyone really knows.

[edit]

But the NYT:

Quote:
Law enforcement officials have said they used only ordinary methods in the case, which might have included grand jury subpoenas and search warrants. As the complainant, Ms. Kelley presumably granted F.B.I. specialists access to her computer, which they would have needed in their hunt for clues to the identity of the sender of the anonymous e-mails. While they were looking, they discovered General Allen’s e-mails, which F.B.I. superiors found “potentially inappropriate” and decided should be shared with the Defense Department.

In a parallel process, the investigators gained access, probably using a search warrant, to Ms. Broadwell’s Gmail account. There they found messages that turned out to be from Mr. Petraeus.
Quite a bit of speculation all the way around.
