Devin Nunes Discusses Impeachment and Schiff’s New Found Authority – Congressional Subpoenas for Private Phone Records…

Devin Nunes appeared on Tucker Carlson to discuss the impeachment events of the day.  However, thankfully they also discussed the revelation that HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff randomly started issuing subpoenas for telephone information.  That’s the part I find very troubling.  Notice how the media simply ignores it?  This is a pretty big damn deal.

Under what authority can congress arbitrarily send subpoenas for the private phone records of citizens, journalists, and fellow politicians?  Can Nunes now start sending subpoenas for the phone records of Michael Isikoff around the time of the Flynn phone call leak?… and can congress publish those call records as a part of some possibly inquiry into the leak… and we can cross reference to identify the FBI leaker?….

    Can someone obtain a legal copy of the subpoena Adam Schiff used to acquire the phone records?

    Wonder if, Adam Schiff has the subpoena classified already?

        The annotations in the right-most column (“AT&T Document Production…”) make it plain that there were multiple data collections going on. There are at least three groupings (possibly page numberings?); within each grouping, the numerical sequence follows the date/time stamp of the calls referenced. Some entries have the same numbering for more than one call (which supports the page number hypothesis).

        First, there is the “900 series” in which Parnas is a participant. Second, there is the “2100 series” in which Giuliani is a participant. Third, there is also the “3565” entry between Sekulow and Giuliani, but this one is an outlier. Either Sekulow was a third target himself, or else more than 1400 collections (pages?) against Giuliani elapsed between 1pm and 5pm the same day.

        The annotations additionally imply that AT&T provided the data on 9/30/2019 to someone named Bates working for the HPSCI.

          No, “Bates,” is a reference to the Bates numbering system that lawyers use when producing documents to someone asking for the documents. We used to use a mechanical stamping device originally manufactured by a company named “Bates”.

          This allows the two sides to cite to specific pages with a common numbering system. Instead of typing, “The second page of the third email sent by Joe Blow to Annie Jenkins on June 5, 2006, at 3:00 PM, from jblow@email.com to ajenkins@email.com,” all one has to do is type “Plaintiff’s 1st Production 0045”.

          ATT clearly has to respond to a lot of these things so they’ve created their own numbering scheme to make things easier to keep track of as time progresses.

            Also, the naming scheme ATT uses is useful to understand just how many pages of documents were sent to HPSCI, at least 3,565 pages were sent from ATT to HPSCI on September 30,
            2019.

            That’s a lot of pages, especially considering that each record entry is one line of text on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper. Depending on the font size, probably there’d be dozens of call records per page.

            The Bates references are to a process formerly referred to as Bates Stamping – which is simply a way of assigning a unique number to every page of every evidentiary document in a legal proceeding. “Bates” was the brand name of the stamps originally used, which contained a seven digit stamping capability that advanced by one number (or more depending on the requirement) every time a page was manually stamped with it.

            If I were investigating his death, I’d explore someone taking previous copies of the hallway when no one is walking by, then live streaming it back into the recorder bypassing the live video feed(s) around the time of the murder. That would record the correct time and present the whole scene as If no one walked by. It would be interesting to hear a video expert’s opinion on that possibilty.

        When I speak to people who don’t get it all the way and still kinda believe the MSM but not really (we all know them, they are the ones who waiver when talking about it, lack of confidence in repeating back, confused about the complete lack of evidence but can’t quit let go of their brainwashed bias) I stop trying to say it’s to cover for Obama’s abuses. I instead use the cookie jar analogy:

        I say Trump is an outsider who doesn’t need DC money. He’s already rich. He doesn’t need to be “cool” to world leaders- he’s already established himself prior to being President. Trump is already famous so Trump wants to go down as the greatest President ever- the one who brought prosperity back to America (MAGA). So, his policies are undoing the years and years of money laundering via foreign aid kick backs (Ukraine-, China, Russia- Ukraine being front and center with Biden), military deals, donations to charities, i.e, Clinton Foundation, etc. This is the cookie jar.

        Dems are loud, stomping their feet, in our face and outright lying. Why? Because they are the kid whose hand was caught in the cookie jar, crumbs on their shirt and chocolate chips on their face. Whereas the R’s involved are silent, not because they are not involved, but rather because they are the kid whose hand is not in the cookie jar and they don’t want to draw attention to the crumbs on their shirt. Neither wants to get in trouble so the one with the hand in the jar is loudly pointing at little Susy who is two rooms away and had nothing to do with it while the other sits back and lets the caught one redirect to Susy.

          A percent kick-back to non-profit foundations.
          The foundations donate to U.S. politicians & their campaigns.

          That’s why Trump’s phone call to Ukraine, asking about Biden & Crowdstrike panicked them. It cut off a big source of their campaign funds, and risked exposing the Crowdstrike/FBI connections.

I am relieved that Republicans seem to be on Our side finally, but watching the GOP’s involvement in defending Our President. I also think they are using the impeachment to garner information/spy on the investigation evidence being revealed. Imagine if the Republicans or, God forbid, Our President encroached on the Mueller investigation to get dirt on what was being investigated by their team. Hands up screaming would ensue and heads would roll, but the corrupt players are diverting any notice of the ongoing US investigation, evidence of real corruption, and hiding the evidence Ukraine is revealing about the corruption. I have seen some of the evidence Ukraine has turned up, but it is hidden well from the US. The very players that are being promenaded in the impeachment hearings are the ones being leveled by Ukraine for corruption.

How Shiffty got those call records came from information already in the public domain most likely, in the Mueller report, or other related investigations at the SDNY.. No transcripts. Underscored. Just a list of call records. That proves nothing. How they got the list of phone records, who knows. The records will show that Nunes and others got lots of phone calls, like their doctor, wives, children, and so on.

    Am not claiming to be an expert on anything but have a LONG MEMORY about AT&T and how a whistleblower exposed how AT&T agreed to give ALL customer phone records to the US GVMNT after 9/11..From what I recall the US Govmint drove Bell West out of business when they refused to comply with the order to give up all phone records. But for all telecoms who gave up their customer data they are no longer required to provide full disclosure on their financial statements, but have to cough up ANY data a gvmint official requests. AT&T cut a deal and Shifty I guess knows all about it. Perhaps I have underestimated the extent of his defensive posture. This move by Shiff smells like something I cannot define.
    And dear Devin Nunes, you are my hero. Hint to you: your have the authority and legal standing to request Shiff’s telephone records from AT&T or any other telecom who signed this deal. They cannot deny you. this info under the dirty deals they made with the US gvmint.

  15. I am not as much concerned about exercising congressional subpoena power as I am the abrogation of attorney client privilege, due process and the 4th Amendment.

    I am an attorney and I can’t subpoena someone’s personal records without giving them advance notice and a right to object and I can only subpoena records that relate to an issue I am involved in before the courts.

    I hope the Rudy, Devin, POTUS and the others were given advance notice of the subpoenaing of their personal phone records.

      Given how this is coming out I doubt anyone got advance notice, at least not in time to oppose Schiff.
      I seem to recall the gyrations and hoops that had to be jumped through to investigate Lynn Stewart Esq. Did they not have to have a Federal Judge to listen to all intercepts to decide if that particular call was going to be recorded. My memory was some things were alluded to in the trial because the Judge did not start recording in time.
      Really really high standards for recording lawyers who might be going about their legal duties to their clients. And why the Anti-Trump DOJ insisted Cohen was not doing legal work for Trump when they openly started going after him, and why Guilianni is careful to specify he only does Trump work as Trump’s attorney.

    Apparently only Democrats have oversight and subpoena power in 2019.

    Personally I think Shifty should be arrested and tried for treason in a REAL court. Or… just rendition him to Somalia for interrogation.

    Makes one wonder, “What two hop connections would turn up if the full power of 702(16)(17) database searches were thrown at Rep Schiff?”

    Can just image the howls from Lawfare.

    Again, closely read Schiff’s summary and narrative from his Crypt & Clown Show Testimony Report. The democrats are angling towards a “conspiracy to impact the 2020 elections” charge in the articles of impeachment. They are aiming to remove the entire “Republican Executive”. Plus use this information to bring Nunes and the other House Republicans kicking their butts at the hearing before the ethics committee to be removed or silenced in some manner.

    Notice, the phone records are sprinkled throughout the report and summary as evidence supporting the conspiracy claim. Never mind the content and context of the calls, those are immaterial to the motives of Democrats. It’s all about appearance.

    It opens all the named parties in those phone records to turning over transcripts and/or testifying under oath about the phone calls to attempt to refute the optics, again playing into the hands of the lawfare folks who can shape the questions.

    A dirty trick and clever trap.

    For those wanting the Republicans to issue subpoenas, remember those subpoenas have to be approved by the Democrat “leadership” of the House. Remember how Ryan quashed subpoenas from his committee leads, which would have exposed deep state operations prior to November 2018. This is the reason Ryan stayed on as speaker through the elections and January 2019.

    Democrat Committee leads have their requests rubber stamped and you know what will happen to republican requests.
