Gov Spying Through Google Hits Record High Under Trump Administration

From our “Here comes the new boss, same as the old boss” files, comes this story about Google.  Apparently, after Donald Trump, the alleged champion of liberty, took office, the attempts by the government to spy on Americans have not decreased.  If this record is any indication of what else might be going on, it’s possible the efforts by the government to spy on its citizens has only increased under Trump.  Google’s biannual transparency report indicates that the number of gov requests for users’ private data has hit record highs during the first six months of this year, 2017.
