Trump Administration Demands Data on over a Million Visitors to anti-Trump Site

I assume this is for the purpose of generating reprisals? In any case, this would set a huge precedent for invasion of privacy simply for visiting a web site.

The Trump administration is demanding web host provider Dreamhost turn over the logs of over 1.3 million visitors to an anti-Trump website it hosts, the company has revealed.

News of the Justice Department order landed Monday when the company took an unusual step of announcing that it had been in talks with the government to clarify and narrow the search warrant in an effort to comply, but had failed to reach an amicable resolution.

Details may be found on a number of web sites all over the Internet. I found it first on ZDnet at: http://zd.net/2uL40ZA. Further details may be found at https://www.dreamhost.com/blog/we-fight-for-the-users/.

Do you want Big Bother… uh, the government tracking your visits to web sites that disagree with the officials’ political beliefs?
