Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Eric Swalwell issued the following statement regarding the New York Times report that the Trump Department of Justice targeted Members of the House Intelligence Committee and others associated with them:

“Like many of the world’s most despicable dictators, former President Trump showed an utter disdain for our democracy and the rule of law. In May, I was notified by Apple that my records were among those sought by—and turned over to—the Trump Administration as part of a politically motivated investigation into his perceived enemies. This kind of conduct is unacceptable, but unfortunately on brand for a president who has repeatedly shown he would cast aside our Constitution for his own personal gain. I support Chairman Adam Schiff’s call for the Inspector General to investigate this case and other acts of the weaponization of law enforcement carried out by the former president.”
