Why Global media outlets are meeting US Attorney General Merrick Garland today
Representatives from media outlets CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post are expected to meet with US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday to discuss the Trump administration’s controversial leak investigation that involved seeking reporter records from all three media outlets.
This comes after the revelation that Department of Justice officials took aggressive steps to obtain 2017 phone and email records of reporters at the three outlets.
Democrats are demanding sworn testimony from Donald Trump’s former attorneys general involved in the scandal.
These revelations pile on to other recent subpoena news. Last week, it was revealed prosecutors in Trump’s Justice Department subpoenaed Apple for data from the accounts of House Intelligence Committee Democrats.
Former Trump White House counsel Don McGahn and his wife also reportedly received disclosures from Apple last month that their account records were sought by the Justice Department in February 2018.
