Justice Dept. Drops Request for 1.3M Visitor IP Addresses for Website DisruptJ20.org

HeadlineAug 23, 2017
H14 j20

The Justice Department has dropped its request for IP addresses of 1.3 million visitors to the website DisruptJ20.org, which helped organize the Inauguration Day protests against President Trump. The Justice Department is continuing to press the web hosting company DreamHost to turn over information about what it claims was a “premeditated riot” during Trump’s inauguration. More than 200 protesters were arrested during the Inauguration Day protests and are now facing decades in prison on trumped-up charges.
