D.Minn.: Def lacked standing to challenge SW to YouTube for search history and videos viewed in terrorism case

Defendant was indicted for providing material support to a terrorist organization and planned to travel to Afghanistan, and there were nine search warrants. She communicated with Afghanistan on digital devices and by a gmail account. The search warrants for all of them all showed probable cause on a “four corners” review. She lacks standing to challenge a search warrant for YouTube to provide her search history and the videos she looked at for inspiration. United States v. Hassan, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 87337 (D. Minn. May 8, 2018), adopted, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 86591 (D. Minn. May 23, 2018).

Another Playpen warrant sustained. United States v. Welch, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 87735 (D. Neb. May 25, 2018).*
