Here's the thing.
A lot of conservatives are very frustrated at inaction in certain areas. And they have a good point. Sometimes things that need to be done aren't happening. But other times they are moving forward secretly without making headlines.
Unlike Holder and Lynch, Sessions has to make some moves quitely without putting out press releases about them. Here's an example of one of those silent running investigations.
The Department of Justice has requested information on visitors to a website used to organize protests against President Trump, the Los Angeles-based Dreamhost said in a blog post published on Monday.
Dreamhost, a web hosting provider, said that it has been working with the Department of Justice for several months on the request, which believes goes too far under the Constitution.
DreamHost claimed that the complying with the request from the Justice Department would amount to handing over roughly 1.3 million visitor IP addresses to the government, in addition to contact information, email content and photos of thousands of visitors to the website, which was involved in organizing protests against Trump on Inauguration Day.
The warrant, dated July 12, says that authorities will seize any information constituting violations of D.C. code governing riots that involve individuals connected to the protests on Inauguration Day.
More than 200 people were indicted on felony rioting charges in connection with the protests in Washington on Jan. 20.
Which website is it? Disruptj20.org of the #DisruptJ20 protests whose stated mission was "NO PEACEFUL TRANSITION". It appeared on Antifa sites
DisruptJ20 planned to shut down as much of D.C. as possible.
“We’re planning a series of massive direct actions that will shut down the inauguration ceremonies and any related celebrations—the inaugural parade, the inaugural balls, you name it,” Disrupt J20 declares on its website, adding: We’re also planning to paralyze the city itself, using blockades and marches to stop traffic and even public transit."
Organizers plan early-morning “blockade actions” Jan. 20 built around such banners as “racial justice,” “trade justice,” “climate justice,” “economic justice,” “communities under attack,” “labor direct action,” and “anti-war and Palestine.”
Our own Matthew Vadum noted the Soros linkage.
“George Soros is a major funder of Alliance for Global Justice, a radical left-wing group that collected donations on behalf of the Occupy Wall Street movement,” Vadum told The Daily Signal, adding:
Alliance for Global Justice is now functioning as a fiscal sponsor for a group called Refuse Fascism that is heavily involved in the Disrupt J20 effort. A fiscal sponsor accepts donations on behalf of unincorporated or small groups and charges a modest administrative fee so that donors can deduct the donations from their taxes.
Now, the DOJ is trying to shine a light under the rock.
