    Rosenstein, DOJ exploring ways to more easily spy on journalists

    https://thehill.com/opinion/judiciar...on-journalists

    For months now, the Department of Justice (DOJ) quietly has been working on a revision to its guidelines governing how, when and why prosecutors can obtain the records of journalists, particularly in leak cases.

    The work has been supervised by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosensteinís office, especially since former Attorney General Jeff Sessions departed, but is not wrapped up.

    I had a feeling that the Trump presidency would mean the end of our democratic system. They are busy working on eliminating the First Amendment.

    That is one of those ill-considered initiatives Trump's ordered and that sounds good to him and Republicans right now, but won't sound so good when the press is "all over" Democrats.

    Considering the actions the previous administration took against journalists, this looks like more of the same and needs to be stopped in its tracks.
