Prosecutors in the United States Justice Department under former President Donald Trump seized data from Apple on two Democratic lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee, as well as that of their staff and family members, The New York Times reported on Thursday.
Subpoenas for the communications metadata targeted congressman Adam Schiff of California, a Trump foe who was then the panel’s top Democrat and now its chairman, the paper said.
The record seizures came in 2017 and early 2018 as the department investigated leaks of classified information relating to contacts between the Trump administration and the Russian government, according to the newspaper.
