  1. I am not a lawyer but my read of the DOJ requests in the warrant and subsequent filings. That 1> The DOJ is fishing and not sure of the information Dream Host will actually have. 2> It seems that they are trying to do an end run around the 1st Amendment. I think the DOJ knows they would be hard pressed to get the info directly from Disrupt 20.org. Instead they are using the back door.
    It seems the DOJ wants to prove some sort of conspiracy in this protest that turned violent. The city law that the protesters were arrested under,,The very wording is reminiscent of the original RICO statute. To date of the 230 arrested 9 cases have been dropped, 60 did receive indictments,which do not indicate guilt. There are over 100 charged and arrested who’s cases are in limbo. I believe the government needs to prove that Disrupt20 incited these people to violence in order to proceed.If this demonstration and the ensuing violence happened anywhere but DC. The DOJ would not be involved.
