Accordingly, the Government's Objections are denied and this Court will accept Judge Scott's Report and Recommendation in its entirety.
IT HEREBY IS ORDERED, that this Court accepts Judge Scott's Report and Recommendation (Docket No. 80) in its entirety, including the authorities cited and the reasons given therein.
FURTHER, that the Government's Objections (Docket No. 84) are DENIED. FURTHER, that Defendants' requests to suppress evidence as contained in their omnibus motions (Docket Nos. 58 and 61) are GRANTED in part and DENIED in part consistent with Judge Scott's Report and Recommendation.
