Better news: Trump's DOJ wants to weaken encryption, again Reader 10/11/2017 (Wed) 22:39:56 No. 2353 del
Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein Delivers Remarks on Encryption at the United States Naval Academy

tl;dr he wants tech companies to weaken encryption, new jargon "Responsible encryption"

some nice nuggets:
>Warrant-proof encryption defeats the constitutional balance by elevating privacy above public safety
>Encrypted communications that cannot be intercepted and locked devices that cannot be opened are law-free zones that permit criminals and terrorists to operate without detection by police and without accountability by judges and juries.
>If companies are permitted to create law-free zones for their customers, citizens should understand the consequences,
>When police cannot access evidence, crime cannot be solved. Criminals cannot be stopped and punished.

And yes, Trump appointed RFR[1], Senate confirmed April.
