Apple handed over private email data from Trump counsel McGhan to Justice Department and didn't let him know - New report claims


Donald McGahn, a White House special counsel during the Trump administration, was informed last month by Apple that his personal data had been turned over without his knowledge to the Justice Department in 2018 according a new shocking report by the New York TImes, the latest alleged data seizure during President Donald Trump’s time in the White House.



According to two unnamed sources who spoke to the New York Times, Apple, famed for its company policy of customer data privacy and protection, complied with the government subpoena and sent the Justice Department data regarding accounts belonging to both McGhan and his wife in February 2018.


As at press time it’s still unclear what the federal agents were investigating or what Apple handed over.



The time period when Apple was allegedly served a subpoena also came amid an investigation into former Trump campaign head Paul Manafort over his dealings with Russian officials.


Manafort was later sentenced to prison for tax and bank fraud before being pardoned by Trump in 2020.Latest Post
