Apple and Google have admitted that between December 24, 2020, and March 15, 2021, the Department of Justice issued nine secret subpoenas and warrants to the tech companies for private information on Project Veritas journalists, said Veritas founder and CEO James O'Keefe in a video released on Wednesday.
The Apple and Google accounts of journalists' security detail, accessing private information on them.
"The services we all use everyday have also been compromised. New documents revealed that professional and private accounts from Apple and Google were secretly obtained as well. There are thousands of these secret orders issued every year, ours is just a fraction of that. Every day American citizens are also being spied on... signed without so much as a hearing," said O'Keefe, showing a letter from the DOJ to Google signed by the US Attorney in the Southern District of New York.
