Apple handed over data on Trump’s White House counsel, report says – CNET
Democrats and journalists apparently weren’t the only ones to get swept up in recently revealed probes by the Trump administration. The Justice Department in 2018 subpoenaed Apple for data from an account that belonged to Donald McGahn II, who at the time was White House counsel for President Donald Trump, according to a report Sunday from The New York Times.
Apple was barred at the time from telling McGahn about the subpoena but was able to inform him last month, reported the Times, citing a person briefed on the mater. Apple told McGahn that it “complied with the subpoena in a timely fashion but declined to tell him what it had provided the government,” according to the Times.
