Parler Using Right Wing Russian Servers

I tracked this information back to Reuters (Parler partially reappears with support from Russian technology firm), and so think it's Kosher.


Now, my  limited understanding of surveillance law leads me to believe that any internet traffic coming from outside the US is legally much more open to eavesdropping by 'law enforcement' -- both national and state.

I also think that a cyber attack on a Russian provider would not necessarily be a crime under US law.  

Amusingly, their new provider is DDOS-Guard which has "has worked with other racist, rightist and conspiracy sites that have been used by mass murderers to share messages, including 8kun. It has also supported Russian government sites."
