They sure deserved it!
A lot of MSM outlets are decrying this as some horrible infringement on their rights, but they seem to forget the horrible infringement on rights Dems created with the whole Russia hoax.
Many say that Swalwell and Schiff are some of the most corrupt Dems there are.
Swalwell allegedly slept with a Chinese spy, and Schiff is one of the people at the forefront of attacks on President Trump.
Neither of these two is innocent, and neither of the two deserve any tears from anybody because they had some of their data used to investigate wrong doing they are both suspected of.
Take a look:
the records of at least 12 people tied to the committee were seized in 2017 & 2018, including of Rep Schiff according to committee officials 2 other people briefed on the inquiry. Rep Swalwell said in an interview that he had also been notified that his data had been subpoenaed. https://t.co/Brnlz75feq

The Associated Press reports:
The records of at least twelve people connected to the intelligence panel were eventually shared, including Chairman Adam Schiff, who was then the top Democrat on the committee. California Rep. Eric Swalwell was the second member, according to spokeswoman Natalie Edelstein. The records of aides, former aides and family members were also siezed, including one who was a minor, according to the committee official.
Apple informed the committee last month that their records had been shared, but did not give extensive detail. The committee is aware, though, that metadata from the accounts was turned over, the official said.
The records do not contain any other content from the devices, like photos, messages or emails, one of the other people said. The third person said that Apple complied with the subpoena, providing the information to the Justice Department, and did not immediately notify the members of Congress or the committee about the disclosure.

The Russia probe was nothing but a constant stream of leaks, possibly some from Eric Swalwell himself, and yet he demands to know where the leaks came from on his relationship with the Chinese spy. The Russia leaks were fake news, the Swalwell leaks are truth. He is deflecting.

CNN had the typical left wing MSM reporting on the issue:
Prosecutors in the Trump administration Justice Department subpoenaed Apple for data from the accounts of House Intelligence Committee Democrats — including Chairman Adam Schiff — along with their staff and family members as part of a leak investigation, an Intelligence Committee official and a source familiar with the matter confirmed to CNN.
Rep. Eric Swalwell of California, another Democrat on the committee, told CNN’s Don Lemon on Thursday evening that he was notified that his data had been seized as part of the probe as well.
The leak hunt began with the FBI sending a subpoena to Apple in February 2018, which included a gag order, seeking metadata on more than 100 accounts as part of an investigation into the disclosure of classified information, the person familiar with the matter said.
The gag order was renewed three times before it expired this year and Apple notified the customers. The House Intelligence Committee determined that along with members of the panel and staff, the dragnet collected the records of family members, including at least one minor, the person said.
Records seized included those from staff members who had nothing to do with issues related to Russia or former FBI Director James Comey, including Schiff’s personal office staff, a House Intelligence Committee source told CNN.
