Post Office running surveillance on social media posts

According to Yahoo News, the Post Office is running a program to monitor conservative social media postings, possibly using donor databases seized from We Build The Wall to know who to watch. The post office appears to have no authority to do this, nor is it remotely within the purpose of their agency. Even if it was, it appears to violate the 1st and 4th amendments, as they admit to monitoring for information about protests.

Remember when the Post Office was begging for money recently? Was this what they wanted to fund?
