DHS official to be reassigned after intelligence collection on journalists

The DHS has reassigned a senior official who led the agency’s Intelligence & Analysis Office after reports surfaced that the office had been creating intelligence reports on journalists covering the protests in Portland. The WaPo reported the reassignment of Brian Murphy, the acting undersecretary of the office. DHS on Friday said an investigation into the matter would be forthcoming.

They should be collecting information on anyone involved in the riots not only to find suspects but to identify victims and witnesses. As far as the reporters - they were leaking Government information, thus the Government needs to investigate to find the sources of the information. The leakers are a security risk. They say the info was unclassified, but there are many types of unclassified information that are still illegal to leak or distribute (PII, private, public trust, corporate secrets, operational security, sensitive, LE sensitive, business sensitive, NOFORN, etc.).

Many people claim reporter status but then join in on violence. A reporter, reports on news he doesn't create the news.

I'm just waiting on the dont tread on me people to freak out about federal abuse of power like they've warned about for the past 12 years. It's almost like they support the overreach of federal government as long as its their guy doing it, and not their political opponent. Guess yet another right wing ideology that has no spine and bends over backwards for their leadership.

No surprise a Trump cohort lies under oath and illegally monitors Americans! Right wing ideology is all about suppression, oppression, lies and destruction. It’s anti-American.

I'll bet half the people on the list are paid agitators or some other kind of malcontent. One does not simply become a member of the press by holding a camera and saying "I am a journalist." It is entirely possible that people used it as a cover to reduce their punishment the same way Kevin Spacey cheapened the "coming out" experience as a way to deflect from the p3do allegations.
