Trump DOJ seized phone record of NYT reporters

The New York Times reported on Wednesday that the Justice Department under former President Trump quietly seized phone records from four of its reporters in 2017.

The Department of Justice, now under President Biden, told the newspaper that officials seized records from Jan. 14 to April 30, 2017 from reporters Matt Apuzzo, Adam Goldman, Eric Lichtblau and Michael S. Schmidt. The DOJ also got a court order to seize logs of their emails, but “no records were obtained.”

The DOJ didn’t tell the Times what article was being investigated. But the newspaper speculated that the Justice Department was looking into an article the reporters wrote about how former FBI Director James Comey handled investigations during the 2016 presidential election.
