Ron Wyden Demands Answers to Justice Department Investigations of Journalists

In a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions today, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) demanded more information about the Justice Departmentís plans to target members of the media during leak investigations.

The Oregon senator asks how many times the DOJ has issued "subpoenas, search warrants, national security letters, or any other form of legal process authorized by a court" to target journalists in leak investigations.

Wyden also asks if the DOJ has made any changes to departmental regulations for investigating journalists since January 20.

Wyden also urges Sessions to further restrict, rather than loosen, the DOJ's ability to seek records from members of the media.
