Trump officials seized Democrat's Apple data

Democrats have เข้าเกม slotxo demanded a probe into reports that officials acting under former President Donald Trump seized lawmakers' Apple account information.

According to US media reports, prosecutors subpoenaed the tech giant for account data for at least two House Intelligence Committee members.

Representative Adam Schiff - now the committee's chairman - was reportedly one of those targeted.

The justice department has reportedly requested an internal investigation.

On Friday, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco asked the department's inspector general to launch an internal probe, US media reported, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter.

The same day, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and Judiciary Committee chairman Dick Durbin said former attorney generals William Barr and Jeff Sessions must testify or face a subpoena.

Top Democrat Nancy Pelosi has called the news of the seizures, first reported by the New York Times, "harrowing".

"These actions appear to be yet another egregious assault on our democracy waged by the former president," the House speaker said in a statement. She said she supported calls for an investigation, adding: "Transparency is essential."

On Thursday night, representative Eric Swalwell told broadcaster CNN that he was another Democrat targeted. He confirmed that family members' information - including a child's - were also obtained.
