Of course, there's lots of irony to go around here. Timothy Edgar -- who was the director of privacy and civil liberties for the White House National Security staff under Obama (and also did privacy/civil liberties work in the Bush administration) has noted that the leaking of the contents of his phone calls actually means that Flynn's own civil rights have been violated and even suggests he gives the ACLU a call (oh, and another layer of irony: Edgar has been warning about how Flynn and others in the Trump administration might trample on civil liberties... and yet here, he's arguing that Flynn's civil liberties have been violated.)
I wouldn't necessarily call that irony. On the face of it, it looks like... absence of hypocrisy. Principle, even.
Better just to implement a "dummy data" password for your devices, something that appears to unlock it and opens to a useless collection of games, cat pictures, a few innocuous phone contacts, and a fake calendar or such.
If a single officer seized any property belonging to Mr. Trump himself I feel confident that the President would go on the warpath against asset forfeiture.
I'm not so confident of this. I'm sure Trump would object to his own assets being seized, but to be able to take his own experience and imagine it happening to others would require empathy, and that is one asset he does not possess.
I think it's more trying to wear us down with repeated wall-of-text stupidity. While you're busing crafting reasonable replies and arguments, they're just mindlessly pasting nonsense like the good little drones they are.
It's no way to hold a debate, but then that's not really what they're looking for.
