Speaker Pelosi called for an investigation after the New York Times reported Trump’s DOJ investigated House Dems and subpoenaed communication records.
According to the New York Times, the DOJ under Trump subpoenaed Apple for data from Democrat House Intelligence committee members and aides in their hunt for leakers.
The records were seized in 2017 and 2018 but prosecutors were unable to tie anyone to leaks.
The New York Times reported:
As the Justice Department investigated who was behind leaks of classified information early in the Trump administration, it took a highly unusual step: Prosecutors subpoenaed Apple for data from the accounts of at least two Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, aides and family members. One was a minor.
All told, the records of at least a dozen people tied to the committee were seized in 2017 and early 2018, including those of Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, then the panel’s top Democrat and now its chairman,
