From Gizmodo

Twitter just filed a lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security and US Customs and Border Protection over an attempt by those agencies to unmask an anonymous Twitter account, @ALT_uscis, that is frequently critical of United States immigration policy.

The lawsuit also names Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly, acting commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection Kevin Mcaleenan and two other CPB special agents”

Lets get this straight.

From Wiki

President Trump allegedly attempted to strong arm the very company that allows him to push his legislative agenda without having to face the media.

He also appears to have engaged in the very practices that he has accused the Obama administration of committing against him.

He has failed to produce evidence of that allegation by the way.

Twitter meanwhile has a sensational lawsuit on their hands.

This lawsuit is about the constitution, not only privacy laws, but the relationship between government and business.

The exact details of this story could land the President in hot water politically if he attempted to use his executive power to trample on basic civil liberties.
