Barr's DOJ secretly subpoenaed data from Apple on democratic congressman

From the New York Times

*snip*
WASHINGTON ó As the Justice Department investigated who was behind leaks of classified information early in the Trump administration, it took a highly unusual step: Prosecutors subpoenaed Apple for data from the accounts of at least two Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, aides and family members. One was a minor.

All told, the records of at least a dozen people tied to the committee were seized in 2017 and early 2018, including those of Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, then the panelís top Democrat and now its chairman, according to committee officials and two other people briefed on the inquiry.

Prosecutors, under the beleaguered attorney general, Jeff Sessions, were hunting for the sources behind news media reports about contacts between Trump associates and Russia. Ultimately, the data and other evidence did not tie the committee to the leaks, and investigators debated whether they had hit a d
lead end and some even discussed closing the inquiry.

9. Yes but was under a gag order until May

The information came from Apple to Schiff not from the New DOJ.

11. I wonder what they told the Grand Jury was the reason for the subpoenas?

The Jury had to approve the subpoena first so they must have been given "evidence" of a crime.
