>> The Justice Department secretly subpoenaed Apple in February 2018 for account information of then-White House Counsel Don McGahn, as well as his wife, and secured a gag order barring the company from telling them about it, according to a person familiar with the matter.

It is unclear what the Justice Department was investigating or whether prosecutors actually obtained any of McGahn's account information, the individual said on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.

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.<<

Now it turns out that some of the people that made Donnie Bonespurs angry got subpoenaed too. Looks like Barr is distancing himself from this and the fall guy is retiring on Friday.
>>As I stated during my confirmation hearing, political or other improper considerations must play no role in any investigative or prosecutorial decisions," Garland said in a statement. "These principles that have long been held as sacrosanct by the DOJ career workforce will be vigorously guarded on my watch, and any failure to live up to them will be met with strict accountability."

"Consistent with our commitment to the rule of law, we must ensure that full weight is accorded to separation-of-powers concerns moving forward," he said.


The statement comes as the DOJ is under increasing scrutiny for its handling of leak investigations initiated under the Trump administration that sought the records of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and member Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), journalists from at least three different media outlets and even former White House counsel Don McGahn.

The department's inspector general announced Friday he would conduct a wide-ranging probe into the matter.<<

Trump doesn't have the power to stop these investigations and as long as the GOP pretends that its partisan and unfair, they are going down with him. Also, what rhymes with Chinese Bank Account?

Trump was simply a crime boss. That is becoming glaringly obvious.

So long and thanks for all the fish.
