The Department of Justice is targeting visitors to an anti-Trump website to target the violent leftists who rioted on Inauguration Day. They have already identified over 200 but they’re looking for more.
Leftists are crying foul over privacy, of course.

DOJ seeking records on visitors to anti-Trump website, sparking privacy fight
The Department of Justice is seeking personal information on visitors to an anti-Trump website connected to destructive Inauguration Day protests, sparking a court fight with the hosting service which says the request violates privacy protections.
The DOJ has obtained a search warrant ordering web-hosting service DreamHost “to assist law enforcement and produce such electronic data.”
The department wants data including IP addresses, names and other personal information pertaining to visitors to the website disruptj20.org, which helped organize political protests against the Trump administration.
More than 200 people were charged after protesters broke windows and set fire to a limousine on Trump’s Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. Prosecutors say the website disruptj20.org was used for planning the disturbances.
DreamHost, however, says the warrant seeking information on the 1.3 million visitors to the site and other information is “sweeping” and violates the Constitution and a federal privacy law.
These folks may have thought they were going to have a good time rioting but they’re in a world of trouble.
