Homeland Securitys top leaders initially wanted federal agents to compile intelligence reports dubbed baseball cards -- on everyone participating in Portlands racial justice protests in 2020, according to new information made public Thursday.
After an intelligence head warned they needed to narrow the scope of the reports, they forged ahead and produced dossiers on people arrested during the demonstrations who had nothing to do with threats to federal officers or homeland security, according to unredacted federal reviews of the intelligence gathering released by U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.
Some of the improper intelligence reports went so far as to include the personal interests of the arrestees and the names of their friends and family based on scans of their social media profiles, the internal reviews noted.
A review by Homeland Securitys Office of General Counsel pointed to Brian Murphy, then the departments acting under secretary of intelligence and analysis, as directing much of the misguided intelligence gathering and said Murphys subordinates were afraid to challenge him.

This is everyones future in a Republican dictatorship.
because its too f*cking scary to be in school? Why arent we seeing ads from the Democratic Party promoting responsible gun safety legislation if Democrats win a majority in both houses?
Cody Sullivan got a welcome surprise Saturday: a hug from President Joe Biden at the East Portland Community Center, where the president gave a 25-minute address during his two-day swing through Portland to support Democrats ahead of Election Day.
I was so happy, said Sullivan, 26. It was magical.
Sullivan and mom Ann Donaca of Portland attended the event at the invitation of the Service Employees International Union Local 503. Sullivan has Down syndrome and was the first in Oregon to graduate from a four-year university with the disability.
Donaca said her son shouted I love you to the president as he walked by the audience. Thats when President Biden just kind of melted and hugged Cody, she said.
