Trump Admin got Phone records of WaPo Reporters Covering Russia Probe: report

Isn’t there a crime in here. Very sinister. You can imagine what would have happened if Trump had won re-election:

The Justice Department under former President Trump obtained phone records of Washington Post reporters and attempted to get access to their email records surrounding their reporting on Russia’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election, according to a new report.

The Washington Post reported Friday that reporters Ellen Nakashima and Greg Miller, who still work for the paper, and Adam Entous, who previously reported for it, received letters from the Department of Justice (DOJ) saying they were “hereby notified that pursuant to legal process the United States Department of Justice received toll records associated with the following telephone numbers for the period from April 15, 2017 to July 31, 2017.”

The letters included the reporters’ work, home or cellphone numbers covering the time period detailed in the letter. They also said the DOJ sought “non content communication records” for reporters’ work email accounts but that the department never got the information.
