President Trump's Department of Violent Goons Investigates Tweets of Portland Journalists

The Post reports the intelligence reports on journalists in Portland were compiled by the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis, a sub-agency established in 2007, five years after Homeland Security was created in 2002.
Chad Wolf, the acting head of DHS, has proved to be an able and willing executor of President Trump’s agenda of white supremacy and cruelty to children since his ascension to the role in November of 2019.
The Department of Homeland Security, perhaps best known as an agency that has overseen the deaths of at least seven children in custody held under horrifically sadistic conditions, told the Post that it will discontinue the practice of issuing intel reports about journalists to local police.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security sent local police departments in Oregon at least three intelligence reports about the journalism and tweets of reporters in Portland over the past week, according to the Washington Post.
Strangely enough, Wolf may be publicly promising to investigate his agency’s infringement on the First Amendment, but he did so on the same day the U.S. Justice Department sought permission to strip protections from journalists under the argument that protesters in Portland were posing as journalists to avoid having to “disperse,” which would effectively prevent journalists from doing their jobs of continuing to document police violence.
