The leak investigation that was carried out by the Department of Justice of the country took place in the year 2018. The lawmakers of the county were the main targets of the investigation. William Barr, the Attorney General, came into office in the year 2019. When he took his place, he took an important vow. The vow was with regard to the handling of sensitive situations belonging to the people of influential political background. The Attorney General made sure that he would work towards the answers that were demanded by the conservatives. The answer that William Barr promised to look for, was sought by all.

The 71-year-old former Attorney General pressured the prosecutors of national security for briefings. He also urged the people to take quick steps in order to complete the investigation. This report was extracted from the ones who were involved in the matter. It was also reported that there were times when William Barr brought in some prosecutors from the outside and assigned them their duties. This was done precisely in those areas where he felt that things were not done in a fast and effective manner.

A news story went viral this Thursday according to which the prosecutors had summoned Apple with a subpoena. It was done in order to extract data from all the accounts of Democrat politicians on the committee of House Intelligence. Not only them but the data of their family members as well as the staff were also extracted. It was all a part of the “leak investigation.” 

William Barr brought in Osmar Benvento, the prosecutor of New Jersey as a part of his efforts in order to take disciplinary actions against the leakers. This took place in the beginning of the year 2020. This particular act bothered the prosecutors belonging to Washington owing to the reason that Osmar did not have enough experience in leak investigations.
