WASHINGTON — 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, according to committee officials and two other people briefed on the inquiry…..

The zeal in the Trump administration’s efforts to hunt leakers led to the extraordinary step of subpoenaing communications metadata from members of Congress — a nearly unheard-of move outside of corruption investigations. While Justice Department leak investigations are routine, current and former congressional officials familiar with the inquiry said they could not recall an instance in which the records of lawmakers had been seized as part of one.

Moreover, just as it did in investigating news organizations, the Justice Department secured a gag order on Apple that expired this year, according to a person familiar with the inquiry, so lawmakers did not know they were being investigated until Apple informed them last month.

There was nothing too low that the Trump Administration would steep to intimidate the opposition.

This was pure and simply an abuse of power.

Unlike the Biden And Obama administration....Trump didn't direct anyone to do anything. Anything the DOJ investigated was on their own.
Pelosi would have impeached Trump if he had asked the DOJ to conduct any investigation of any type.

I think we should put Trump back in office and see if he fires those people. He should right?

So................... Biden should ABSOLUTELY do it as well.... Right?

Rot starts at the head. Who is still there, that is higher rank than the people who did this?

Riiight, any proof President Trump directed that? The DoJ were doing it’s own investigations. Too bad if some Congresscritters were investigated, there isn’t much doubt Congress leaks information.

Do you think Barr went rogue without Trump knowing about these investigations?

Trump’s own inspector general found no such abuse.


As for the Trump Administration’s abuse of power why do you justify it by this whataboutism? Is it wrong or not?

Barr was a piece of shit that did nothing for President Trump or this country. He was a self serving waste, like most of the DOJ.

Tell us, was anyone ever charged with the plethora of leaks that come out when President Trump was first in office? Nope, no one.

And carried out by the same DOJ that hatched the Russian Collusion scandal using the Steele Dossier.
Dude....STFU. Trump didn't control the DOJ....Obama did.
