Do you think he's following Trump's lead?
Trump is using presidential privilege to assert his rights according to the law. The courts will say if it is legitimate. Baldwin is hiding (he's probably already destroyed the phone) evidence.

Nixon asserted executive privilege WHILE HE WAS PRESIDENT but assertion
of the privilege doesn't block discovery of evidence of a crime. Trump hasn't
been president since January 20. He has no executive privilege to
assert.

Executive privilege isn't in the constitution. It's an interpretation of
the president's duties.

I really don't understand why it's relevant to bringing charges, and I
sure don't understand why the cops asked for it a month later.

They didn't just start now, but it's not unknown for police (due to political pressure) to drag their feet in
an investigation. Also ANYTHING he said or text AFTER the incident could be important.

I must have missed what political interference there might be.

Why? Yeah, it can be used to impeach what else Baldwin says, but for the
purpose of the crime, prove the facts of what happened during the
incident. I doubt he texted at any point that killing the photographer
was intentional.

Just charge him already.

But if they have a warrant I assume they can just get the back up data from
Apple?

If they find an email or text message or electronic diary entry he made
that said “I got away with killing her these redneck cops will never pin it
on me” is there some way that would be admissible evidence?

Baldwin is asserting 'precious celebrity privilege' which is even more
extensive than presidential privilege.

He made an Instagram video to challenge the search warrant? I've never
heard of such a proceeding.

"They have to specify what exactly they want. They can't just go
through your phone and take, you know, your photos or your love
letters to your wife or what have you," Baldwin said in a video
shot in the driver's seat of a parked car.

Just indict this fuckhead! If they get a search warrant for the phone,
then they can look at any file on the phone.

Again: Why didn't they seize the phone if they wanted it at the time?

He now claims he's doing no such thing:

NEW YORK (AP) — Alec Baldwin said Saturday that any suggestion he's not
complying with the investigation into last fall's deadly shooting on a
New Mexico film set is a lie.

At issue is a search warrant for Baldwin's cellphone, which authorities
hope can provide information helpful in the probe. Baldwin was holding
a revolver during a rehearsal for his movie “Rust” on Oct. 21 when it
fired, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounding the film's
director.

Authorities still don't have the actor's phone.

Baldwin said in an Instagram message posted Saturday that New Mexico
has to go through New York law enforcement and the process of
specifying exactly what is needed takes time.

“They can't just go through your phone and take your photos, or your
love letters to your wife, or what have you,” he said.

[Really? I don't recall you objecting to them doing to President Trump!]

Baldwin has said he didn't know the gun he was holding contained a live
round when it went off. Investigators are trying to find where the live
round came from and, in the search warrant for Baldwin's phone, said
they are looking for text messages, images, videos, calls or any other
information related to the movie.

“Any suggestion that I am not complying with requests or orders or
demands or search warrants about my phone, that's bull——, that's a
lie,” he said.
