Ryan Fournier is a political activist most known for founding Students for Trump. The organization played a key role in student activism in 2016 that helped Trump get elected. He has continued the good fight since Trump took office.
Fournier challenged Congressman Cohen on a few occasions after he called for a coup d’etat. He also said that Peter Strzok the FBI agent under investigation by Congress deserved a Purple Heart. The Congressman quickly blocked Fournier on his official account as a member of the United States Congress.
A Federal Judge ruled that the President can’t block people… So why can a Congressman?!

On May 23, 2018, the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York ruled “The viewpoint-based exclusion of the individual plaintiffs from that designated public forum 1s proscribed by the First Amendment and cannot be justified by the President’s personal First Amendment interests.” Meaning that the President cannot block citizens of the United States.
When Cohen blocked Fournier he did so in his official capacity.
According to a federal judge, that is a violation of the first amendment!
