Title: Department of Justice Demands Facebook Information From 'Anti-Administration Activists'
Date: Fri, 29 Sep 2017 19:40:00 -0400
PopeRatzo shares a report from CNN: Trump administration lawyers are demanding
the private account information of potentially thousands of Facebook users in
three separate search warrants served on the social media giant, according to
court documents obtained by CNN. The warrants specifically target the accounts
of three Facebook users who are described by their attorneys as
"anti-administration activists who have spoken out at organized events, and who
are generally very critical of this administration's policies." One of those
users, Emmelia Talarico, operated the disruptj20 page where Inauguration Day
protests were organized and discussed; the page was visited by an estimated
6,000 users whose identities the government would have access to if Facebook
hands over the information sought in the search warrants. In court filings,
Talarico says if her account information was given to the government, officials
would have access to her "personal passwords, security questions and answers,
and credit card information," plus "the private lists of invitees and attendees
to multiple political events sponsored by the page."
