D.Democrats and Defenders of Freedom on Friday sharply criticized the data of elected officials in the US Congress by the Donald Trump administration and called for reforming the executive’s “spy forces.”
Democrats Adam Schiff and Eric Schwall recently told Apple that in 2017 and 2018, the judiciary requested that some of their data be leaked as part of an investigation.
Members of the House of Representatives’ investigative team were both suspected of having been in contact with the media about the most important investigation into suspicions of an alliance between Moscow and Donald Trump’s entourage, which at the beginning of the period poisoned all of the Republican president.
In the United States, leaking confidential information is illegal and federal prosecutors can issue search warrants to locate the source, but so far, lawmakers have not yet been targeted by this type of attack. ‘Investigation.
Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer summoned former justice ministers Jeff Sessions and Bill Barr to explain themselves to the upper house justice committee.
The Inspector General of the Judiciary, for his part, announced an inquiry into “the use of sub phones and other legal means to obtain information about communications from members of Congress, their relatives and the media.”
The case is even more heated because prosecutors have targeted two collaborators and family members, including a minor, to check that they did not borrow phones to contact journalists.
The information sent did not finally confirm their suspicions, but the investigation was reopened a year later and did not end until Donald Trump’s presidency, accusing one of his fiercest opponents, Adam Schiff, of being a teacher. Leaks.
In addition, the judiciary had issued a notification order on Apple that expired this year, and MPs were unaware of the inquiries until the IT panel informed them last month.
“I would not be surprised to know that this has happened to others,” Eric Schwall commented, denouncing the “unacceptable” facts.
