The House Intelligence and Financial Services committees issued the subpoenas to several banks as part of their investigations of alleged foreign influence on U.S. elections.
The suit filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan says the subpoenas "have no legitimate or lawful purpose," and alleges they were issued "to ferret about for any material that might be used to cause him political damage."
The shooting adds to a growing list of violent acts with ties to fringe parts of the internet that can also be found on mainstream platforms — particularly Facebook.
“At this point, given all we know about how extremists organize across platforms, there’s no excuse for Facebook,” said Melissa Ryan, an extremism researcher at Hope Not Hate, an advocacy group that tries to counter racism.
For Aden, 21, who was born in Kenya and moved to Minnesota as a child, the photo shoot at Watamu Beach in Kenya was "literally a dream come true."
“I keep thinking to 6-year-old me who, in this same country, was in a refugee camp,” she said during her shoot. “So to grow up to live the American dream, to come back to Kenya and shoot for SI in the most beautiful parts of Kenya — I don’t think that’s a story that anybody could make up.”
