Asking for legal opinions on the situation in Portland

For anyone in the know, how likely is this approach to succeed?

https://www.oregonlive.com/news/2020/07/oregon-will-sue-federal-police-agencies-open-criminal-investigation-into-use-of-force.html

“ Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum announced late Friday that her office would sue several federal law enforcement agencies over their response to Portland protests and launch a criminal investigation into an incident of force by federal officers.

Rosenblum is seeking a temporary restraining order to stop federal officers from detaining Portlanders, arguing federal agencies seized and detained Oregonians without probable cause. She said the state’s lawsuit in federal court will name the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Federal Protection Service as defendants.”

1. I'm expecting we find out soon some of these thugs aren't even actual federal employees

But are instead Trump's private army of contractors, perhaps supplied by Erik Prince.

IOW, a paramilitary outfit of the sort that bumfuck Banana Republic dictatorships have running amok.

Ya know ... Brownshirts.

2. I agree. That's WHY they aren't identifiable. They're private mercenaries.

Border Patrol? Maybe a few of them. And you know who is commandeering these Gestapo tactics?

Ken Cuccinelli, the hatchet man from Bob McDonnell's Virginia crime network. Cuccinelli's an especially dangerous person, and that's why Trump hired him. He's Virginia's former AG, and he's a smart fascist who craves power.

3. I wouldn't be surprised.

One report I read this morning said it was (forgot the acronym) the SWAT team from Border Control. Oh and this Wolf guy is the face but the Cooch is running the show.

4. The Nation got ahold of an internal memo.

It's somewhere here on DU.

More info there on actual players in this.
