David Copperfield is hiding something from the FBI

David Copperfield is being investigated by the FBI though nobody will explain why. He has a warehouse in Las Vegas called the International Museum & Library of the Conjuring Arts where he keeps tricks and memorabilia, and it was raided by FBI agents Wednesday where they seized a computer hard drive, a digital camera memory chip, and nearly two million dollars in cash.

“We understand there is an investigation, we are in touch with the investigators, and are respecting the confidentiality of the investigation,” Copperfield’s lawyer David Chesnoff said in a brief statement.

Everything about this is just so mysterious. I think it’d be pretty funny if the director of the FBI saw a magic special and this whole case is to figure out how David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty disappear. I mean, it was there, and then it wasn’t. Where’d it go?! How’d he do it?! I bet there was a mirror involved. I’m pretty clever when it comes to these things.
