The Justice Department obtained a portfolio of information about a Fox News correspondent’s conversations and visits as part of an investigation into a possible leak, The Washington Post reported Monday — in the latest example of the government seizing records of journalists.
The information follows the charge that the department secretly obtained two months of phone records from Associated Press journalists as part of a separate leak probe.
