Justice Department Trying To Get Personal Info On 6,000 Users Who 'Liked' Anti-Trump Facebook Page!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpTech TalkFacebookScary!

Trump administration lawyers are cracking down on the haters and losers.

The Justice Department has filed three search warrants that would grant it access to personal information of approximately 6,000 Facebook accounts that liked an anti-Donald Trump page.

According to CNN and LawNewz, the search warrants were filed in February and specifically target the accounts of three Facebook users who are described by their lawyers as "anti-administration activists who have spoken out at organized events, and who are generally very critical of this administration's policies."

One of these users is Emmelia Talarico, admin for the "disruptj20" page that has already made itself an enemy with the Justice Dept. for organizing and discussing inauguration day protests.

Talarico told CNN that the Justice Department would like to be able to search the "personal passwords, security questions and answers, and credit card information," of about 6,000 users linked with her page, along with "the private

Donald Trump Reportedly Using The Justice Department To Go After Affirmative Action!

no title

Looks like the civil rights division of the Justice Department is taking a new stance under the leadership of Donald Trump and his Attorney General (for the moment) Jeff Sessions.

Instead of protecting the most oppressed minority groups, they're going to focus on all that discrimination against white people.

According to a report in The New York Times, an internal document was leaked that reveals the department is trying to find which of its lawyers are up for "investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions."

But this apparently isn't to stop schools from discriminating against minority applicants; it's to stop affirmative action from giving an edge to black and Latino students — because they believe it's discriminating against white applicants.

Eesh.

​The Supreme Court has previously ruled that race can be taken into account because of the educational benefits of a diverse student body, so long as there are no racial quotas.

But critics say colleges are using that to reject students because they're white; there are still several pending lawsuits against major universities by white students claiming they were discriminated against.

The project to take on those cases will reportedly be run out of the front office of the Justice Department rather than the Educational Opportunities Section which usually works on anything related to colleges and universities. In other words, it'll be done by Trump appointees rather than career civil servants who actually know what they're doing and care about civil rights.

Justice Department Will NOT Be Filing Charges Against Officers Who Fatally Shot Alton Sterling

no title

Justice won't be served in the shooting death of Alton Sterling.

It's been reported that the Justice Department will NOT file charges against the officers involved in the death of the Baton Rouge man, whose videotaped shooting by police last summer sparked mass outrage.

According to sources familiar with the investigation, prosecutors have concluded there isn't enough evidence to bring civil rights charges in the 37-year-old's death.

This will mark the first case under Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the department has publicly declined to prosecute officers investigated for a possible wrongdoing in a high-profile case.

Of course, the department looks a lot different than it did at the time of Sterling's death — which prompted days-long protests that lead to over 150 arrests. Then, Barack Obama spoke out on the controversial shooting with a vote of confidence in the Justice Department's investigation.

But things are certainly different now, and Baton Rouge has been hearing rumors that the department would not bring charges since last week. As of Tuesday, Sterling's family had not received word of any decision.

A spokesperson for the family's attorneys said in a statement:

Oh, Just FYI… YOU Are Now Paying Donald Trump's Hefty Legal Bills…

Obviously the juicier Donald Trump hotel story has to do with hookers, urine, and ex-KGB spy tactics — but that one isn't going to personally cost YOU money.

In case you hadn't heard, Trump may have committed a grievous legal error by becoming President.

See, the Trump International Hotel stands in Washington, D.C. like a monument to Drumpf's many conflicts of interest. His company's lease with the federal government (the hotel is inside the Old Post Office building), specifically forbids ownership by a government official, which he clearly now is.

The POTUS has supposedly separated himself from his company BUT conveniently

The U.S. Department of Justice's lawsuit that was looming in the distance has now crashed down on top of Lance Armstrong, and we're hearing that someone who used to love him might have to testify against him!

Lance better hope there's a little love left, which we wouldn't bet on, because Kristin Armstrong is his EX-WIFE!

Did you think Lance Armstrong could come half-way clean and everyone would just forget about what he did??

NOPE! The U.S. Justice Department has officially filed a lawsuit against Lance (it was inevitable) and his company Tailwind Sports for the millions of dollars that the U.S. Postal Service used in sponsoring the cycling team! We'd say they have every right to, too!

So how much are they going for?
