AOC tweeted:

Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future? I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future

And some guy associated with https://www.trumpaccountability.net/ replied with(tweet is deleted/protected, but data is still in google search for term trumpaccproject ):

Yes, we are.

One one hand it is perfectly fine to share information, on other hand it could be seen as political intimidation/harrasment...

Are there any laws related to this?

For purposes of this question assume that everything they collect is true, aka no false informations are presented about the people investigated, since I presume there are anti libel laws. Also I am only interested in legality of this, please keep political views out of this.

    What law would making this illegal? One could argue that this is a violation of their privacy, but a "right to be forgotten" as it was enacted in the EU does not exist the same way in the US, and even in the EU collecting a political opponent's past statements and quoting them later would be allowed. – o.m.

    @o.m. I think that's exactly what the OP is asking. – bdb484 Nov 20 '20 at 0:57

Yes. The right to gather information is a central component of First Amendment protection.
