Barr's state secrets say in a suit on Twitter




  Attorney General William Barr

Attorney General William Bar relies on the privilege of state secrets for the first time since he was sworn in as an attorney general last month. The Attorney-General, William Barr, has accepted the privilege of state secrets for the first time he has been sworn in since last month, the controversial legal instrument in a lawsuit filed by Twitter's social media company to publish a more comprehensive description of government requests for surveillance.

The story goes on

In this case, the company claims that the rights of the First Amendment were violated by the government's refusal to allow m to publish more detailed statistics on national security letters and oversight orders the company receives pursuant to the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act

. District Judge Ivon Rogers is considering providing Twitter attorneys with access to the most senior FBI officer's secret declaration filed in 2016 describing the damage that could occur if the firm were able to be more specific about US requests for surveillance.

The Justice Department will not give lawyers access to the classified statement of former Executive Assistant Director Michael Steinbach. If the judge insists that Twitter attorneys have access, the government will close the lawsuit through the privilege of state secrets, a legal mechanism to limit or terminate litigation that may affect US national security, said the Advocate General.
