Trump’s Department of Justice seized then-White House counsel Don McGahn’s Apple account info in February 2018, according to a source familiar with the matter.
It’s unclear what the DOJ was looking for, or if the information was actually obtained.
Apple informed the McGahns of the subpoena last month after the gag order expired. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Justice Department declined to comment.
McGahn left the White House in late 2018 after being a central figure to Trump and the Mueller investigation into Russian interference in 2016.
McGahn testified last month before a House Judiciary Committee and told the committee how uncomfortable he was with the pressure from Trump to fire Mueller from the investigation.
Top Democrats in Congress are now calling on former Attorneys General William Barr and Jeff Sessions to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the subpoenas — calls that are all but certain to grow louder following the revelations about McGahn.
