Trump regime prosecutors consider vexatious/malicious prosecution of WikiLeaks heroes

Source: Washington Post

"Federal prosecutors are weighing whether to bring criminal charges against members of the WikiLeaks organization, taking a second look at a 2010 leak of diplomatic cables and military documents and investigating whether the group bears criminal responsibility for the more recent revelation of sensitive CIA cyber-tools, according to people familiar with the case. The Justice Department under President Barack Obama had decided not to charge WikiLeaks for revealing some of the government’s most sensitive secrets — concluding that doing so would be akin to prosecuting a news organization for publishing classified information. Justice Department leadership under President Trump, though, has indicated to prosecutors that it is open to taking another look at the case, which the Obama administration did not formally close."

"Families of two American victims of Islamic State terrorist attacks in Europe, represented by Shurat Hadin, have sued Twitter in a civil action for terrorism, charging that the social media giant allowed the terror group to proliferate online. The lawsuit, filed in a federal New York court on Sunday and announced Monday, was on behalf of the relatives of three US nationals who were killed by ISIS in Belgium and Paris. In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs seek monetary compensation 'in amounts to be determined at trial,' arguing that Twitter 'has violated, and is continuing to violate, the [US] Anti-Terrorism Act.'"

US Federal Trade Commission gang sues D-Link over alleged security flaws

Source: CNet News

"The Federal Trade Commission is taking D-Link to court, accusing the company of poor security practices for its routers, web cameras, baby monitors and other products. The lawsuit, filed in San Francisco's district court, argues that D-Link failed to meet security standards from 2007, leaving widespread vulnerabilities open to hackers. The commission alleges that D-Link coded easy to crack login credentials into its camera software, enabling hackers to easily spy on the company's customers." [editor's note: Keep in mind that the FTC doesn't represent D-Link's customers, it represents its own interests – TLK] (01/06/17)
