Trump DOJ got journalistss phoone numbers

The Washington Post reported on Friday that the Department of Justice under former President Donald Trump secretly obtained phone records from some of the newspaper's reporters.

The Post reported that the DOJ sent letters dated May 3 to Post reporters Ellen Nakashima and Greg Miller, and former Post reporter Adam Entous, informing them that they were “hereby notified that pursuant to legal process the United States Department of Justice received toll records associated with the following telephone numbers for the period from April 15, 2017 to July 31, 2017.”

The newspaper said the records were obtained over reporting done in early 2017 over the role of Russia in the 2016 presidential election. Intelligence agencies and independent experts have repeatedly pointed to Russian efforts to meddle with that vote, even as Trump himself steadfastly tried to fight those conclusions.
