Trump Justice Department secretly obtained Post reporters’ phone records


Bruce Brown, executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, said the incident “raises serious First Amendment concerns because it interferes with the free flow of information to the public,” and he called on the Justice Department to explain “exactly when prosecutors seized these records, why it is only now notifying The Post, and on what basis the Justice Department decided to forgo the presumption of advance notification under its own guidelines when the investigation apparently involves reporting over three years in the past.”
