Apple told former Trump White House counsel Don McGahn and his wife that Justice had subpoenaed information about accounts that belonged to them in 2018.

AdvertisementSenate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), said it was “imperative” the Senate Judiciary Committee issue a subpoena to John Demers, the assistant attorney general for national security, in addition to former Attys. Gen. William Barr and Jeff Sessions, if they refuse to appear voluntarily.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday also called on Barr and Sessions, as well as Rod Rosenstein — the No. 2 Justice official at the time — to testify under oath in the House about what they knew. She declined to say whether she would push for subpoenas if they refused to appear.

“The Justice Department has been rogue under President Trump, understand that, in so many respects,” Pelosi told CNN’s “State of the Union.” ”This is just another manifestation of their rogue activity.”Schumer’s and Pelosi’s demands came days after news emerged that the Justice Department had secretly subpoenaed Apple for metadata from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and another Democratic member of the panel, California Rep. Eric Swalwell, in 2018, as their committee was investigating the former president’s ties to Russia. Schiff at the time was the top Democrat on the panel, which was led by Republicans. headtopics.com

Demers has been in charge of the department’s national security division since February 2018, being sworn in a few weeks after the subpoena was issued to Apple for the Democrats’ records, and his division has played a role in each of the leak investigations. Schumer called on Senate Republicans to join in a demand to issue the subpoenas.

“This was nothing less than a gross abuse of power,” Schumer said of the seized records. “I don’t think we’ve ever had a record of this in the past. … This is about separation of powers.”President Biden has nominated Matt Olsen, an executive at Uber who has experience in the Justice Department and served as director of the National Counterterrorism Center and as general counsel for the National Security Agency, to be the next assistant attorney general for national security.

But Demers has remained in place while Olsen awaits a confirmation hearing in the Senate. The former Boeing airline executive is one of the few remaining Trump appointees still in office.AdvertisementThe records of at least 12 people connected to the House intelligence panel were eventually shared with the Justice Department by Apple after the subpoena was issued in 2018, including aides, former aides and family members. One was a minor.

The subpoena, issued Feb. 6, 2018, requested information on 73 phone numbers and 36 email addresses, Apple said. It also included a non-disclosure order that prohibited the company from notifying any of the people and was renewed three times, the company said in a statement. headtopics.com

On Friday, theJustice Department’s inspector general launcheda probe into the matter after a request from Deputy Atty. Gen. Lisa Monaco. Inspector General Michael Horowitz said he would examine whether the data subpoenaed by the Justice Department and turned over by Apple followed department policy and “whether any such uses, or the investigations, were based upon improper considerations.”

Horowitz said he would also investigate similar Trump-era seizures of journalists’ phone records.AdvertisementIn recent weeks, the Justice Department notified news organizations that it had secretly seized phone records belonging to reporters at the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN as part of criminal leak investigations.
