Pelosi: Trump DOJ's Spying On Political Enemies Goes Beyond What Nixon Did

|

Pelosi responding to how the Justice Department during the Trump administration, subpoenaed Apple for data from Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee, their staff, some of their families:


NANCY PELOSI: So, in terms of the data mining, what the Republicans -- what the administration did, the Justice Department, the leadership of the former president goes even beyond Richard Nixon. Richard Nixon had an enemies list. This is about undermining the rule of law. And for the attorneys general, Barr and Sessions, at least two, to say that they didn't know anything about it is beyond belief. So, we will have to have them come under oath to testify about that. Now, how could it be that undermining the rule of law, undermining the separation of power of the executive branch and the legislative branch, and having these -- just data mining is something new, in terms of where technology has taken us, but not new in terms of something that should never have happened.
