The Trump administration seized phone records of NYT journalists


- Advertisment -

The Donald Trump administration’s Justice Department spied on the phone records of four reporters from The New York Times for nearly four months in 2017, according to the current Joe Biden administration.

The New York newspaper reported this Thursday on those actions of the Trump administration to try to discover the sources used by spied journalists.

Last month, Democrat Biden’s Justice Department released Trump-era phone and email checks on reporters working for The Washington Post and CNN.

Dean Baquet, executive editor of The New York Times, condemned this action by the Trump administration.

“The seizure of journalists’ phone records profoundly undermines press freedom,” he said in a statement, adding that “it threatens to silence the sources we depend on to provide the public with essential information about what the government is doing.”

Last month, after revelations about communications log seizures involving reporters from the Post and CNN, Biden called the event “simply wrong.”

Anthony Coley, a spokesman for the Justice Department, said, according to the newspaper, that officials in charge of the matter obtained the records in 2020, adding that “members of the media have now been notified in all cases” of the investigations. of leaks from the 2019-2020 period in which your calls were spied on.

That department informed The New York Times that law enforcement officers had seized the phone records from January 14 to April 30, 2017 of four Times reporters: Matt Apuzzo, Adam Goldman, Eric Lichtblau and Michael S. Schmidt.
