reading thru the commerce dept’s announcement banning tiktok/wechat and i see things like “at the president’s direction” and “executive order” but _nowhere_ do i see an actual law cited. lemme guess, there is no actual legal authority to do this w/out involving another branch of govt and they’re just hoping nobody calls them out on it. hope tim 🍏 stands strong and resists like with the fbi backdoor https://www.commerce.gov/news/press-releases/2020/09/commerce-department-prohibits-wechat-and-tiktok-transactions-protect
