Silicon Valley powerhouse Apple last month told former President Donald Trump’s top lawyer, Donald McGahn, the Justice Department had subpoenaed information about his account in February 2018, the New York Times reported Sunday.
The Times, citing two unnamed sources, reported the government also barred Apple from telling McGahn at the time, according to two people briefed on the matter. His wife also got a similar notice from Apple, the Times reported.
It’s not clear what FBI agents were looking at, or if McGahn was the specific focus, the Times reported.
The disclosure comes in the wake of revelations about Trump-era seizures of data of reporters and Democrats in Congress for leak investigations. McGahn, as White House counsel, was a chief point of contact between the White House and the Justice Department.
