Devin Nunes Responds To Adam Schiff “Subpoenaing” Private Phone Records….

HPSCI Ranking Member Devin Nunes responds to the possibilities of how HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff gained private phone records for use in his impeachment effort.

.

One of the possibilities is that Lev Parnas is a foreign national. SDNY gets a subpoena from the FISA court.  Rudy Giuliani is in contact with Parnas (1-hop). They then unmask and pull Giuliani’s records and get Nunes and Solomon (2-hops).

The question would then be how did the unmasked information in an active investigation that started in the FISC end up being sent to the House Intel Committee to be disclosed to the public?

      Schiff will Likely see this question asked again in the Senate under oath. So I guess were going to have to wait to find out for sure where this information came from. Perhaps at the same time, we can learn the whistleblowers identity.

        Question for Treepers: If subpoenaed by the Senate does Schiff have to testify? I know he obviously doesn’t have executive privilege but can he refuse to show or at the very least plead the 5th? Curious about Ciaramello (forgive the spelling) and Hunter B too. I think Joe B may be able to duck out with Exec privilege but I’m just guessing on that….thanks in advance

            Lindsey needs to grow a set. Schiff obviously found a set somewhere or at least borrowed Nancy’s. Mike Flynn (per Lee Smith) was 💯% correct in that the entire intelligence community should have been cleaned out. The corruption of the Obama/Clinton era was allowed to fester, pop and the corruption filled infection spread throughout the government.
            Someone is pulling Lindsey’s chain again. He doesn’t really want to save the republic, he only wants to be re-elected. He thought he wanted to Judiciary Chair but I think the heat has exceeded SC level and he wants to bail. Be a man, Lindsey. Save the US. If Schiff and the Dems get away with this, you’ll be next and I will be the first to say I told you so!

            If the Senate give the President due process, and empower the President to be represented and to call witnesses, what if President Trump’s legal team ask that Schiff be a witness? How will Lindsey stop that?

            It is obvious that schiff is a material witness, and should be called in any impeachment hearing, and I am fairly confident that the President’s Attorneys will insist upon him being called. So the question raised is not so easily dismissed as you seek to suggest.

            I do not know the ins and outs of American law, but since the Senate hearing will be quasi judicial, and witness testimony given under oath, I would expect that Schiff could invoke the 5th.

              Would need Ristvan’s opinion on this.
              In general, Congresspersons have absolute immunity when acting on the floor of Congress – they can say or do anything in the course of congressional business. So, Schiff could be immune from doing stuff we would consider illegal. (The founders wanted the voters to be in charge – not other gov people.)
              DOJ has indicted congressmen – but for crimes outside congressional business, eg. there was a congressman accepting bribes in bathroom stalls.
              Unclear whether a congress person can be brought in as a witness in a congressional hearing (or trial) by a congressional body.

                I don’t think the liberal dimwit schiftless would have immunity for his actions.

                What is at issue with rep. ‘fullofbull’ schiff is 1. his ‘whistleblower’ contacts, which had been ongoing for a month before the report was filed, bringing into question whether schifthead and his staff actually wrote the complaint, and 2. his abuse of authority/office to violate the privacy of US citizens, including ranking member Representative Nunez, reporter John Solomon, and attorneys surrounding President Trump (violating attorney/client privilege), in obtaining their phone call records without first getting a court order (which would have required a showing of probable cause of a crime having been committed prior to obtaining a court ordered surveillance warrant), neither of which took place on the House floor.

              Yes, I agree that Schiff should definitely be called to testify.

              And you’re right that an impeachment trial in the senate, if done according to law and precedent, would give the President’s legal defense team control over witnesses, rather than the senators.

              I was thinking of Judiciary Committee hearings about which Lindsey said he would NOT call Schiff to testify.

              Thankfully, impeachment is not a frequent occurrence (though that can change), so I really wasn’t thinking about the procedure involved.

              This is all such a waste of time, energy, and taxpayer money, not to mention the potential negative effects on foreign policy.

          On the other hand, joe biden definitely engaged in abuse of authority and abuse of office, ie quid pro quo, by leveraging $1 billion in US taxpayer funded monetary assistance in 2016 to require the removal of the Ukrainian prosecutor that was investigating burisma, the company hunter biden worked for, followed by groper joe being stupid enough to brag about it on live television at the CFR press conference….that’s a BIGLY Oops!

              Luke,

              joe the groper would probably try to claim ‘executive privilege’, but that would not protect him if an investigation was ordered in either the House or the Senate, and tbh there wouldn’t be a problem with ordering an investigation considering his public comments. I believe that both baby biden and the whistleblower would have to respond to a Senate subpoena.

              I don’t think that nan neuroses has the votes, and in fact imo she is counting on NOT having enough votes…that way she can save face with the liberal base by saying ‘well we tried’, but still hoping that the House seats they gained in 2018 won’t swing back to red in 2020 due to the liberal abuse of authority exhibited in the ‘muh russia’ hoax, part 2, the Ukraine edition. I think that is one of the biggest reasons for the rush on the impeachment vote…they want it to be over and done with as soon as possible in the hopes that the voters will forget about their farce before the 2020 election.

              After all, they intentionally scheduled the ‘impeachment hearing’ for Monday in the hope of drowning out the release of IG Horowitz’ report on FISA abuse on the same day which will be devastating to the odimwit administration.

        • Schiff has the option to testify or to not testify; however, not testifying comes with consequences. It would almost guarantee a ‘Contempt of Congress’ charge levied at him.

          The Senate can have him arrested by the Sergeant-at-Arms, brought to the floor of the chamber, held to answer charges by the presiding officer, and then subjected to punishment as the Senate may dictate (usually imprisonment for punishment, imprisonment for coercion, or release from the contempt citation).

          Alternatively, the presiding officer of the Senate can instruct the matter be referred to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.

      I believe there’s three or perhaps four possibilities:
      First, all of the entries in the table provided were fabrications by Schiff or by one of his co-conspirators,
      Second, the CIA could have provided the information they received from AT&T since they have a standing agreement with AT&T at $10 million per year. But of course, this would be an illegal act,
      Third, the FISA court could have issued a warrant on someone common to the mall. But a cursory examination of the table provided would suggest that there is not a common name,
      Fourth, there is some combination of the two hop rule that would allow for all of these people knowing each other.

      The easiest most untraceable means of acquiring this information would be to obtain this data through one of the members of the IC, perhaps the CIA since they already have an agreement with AT&T.

      Four, another member the five eyes, trace the activity of the group through a backdoor and acquired the Metadata this way.

Otherwise the career bureaucrats then hold all the institutional knowledge and hold even more control over the departments. The executive needs to have the power to fire people in the departments when they are incompetent, once a purge happens then term limits would be possible. Let’s face it, the government is way too big and is going to take an act of God to break it.

      The metadata is captured by the telecom (in this case, AT&T) for ALL calls/texts etc. and kept for some time (I think 3 years – could be longer.) The timestamp on the report is 9/30/2019 – that is when AT&T turned over the data.
      So, there didn’t need to be an investigation in April – just one in Sep asking for the records.

    The call records are from April 2019. Marie Yovanovitch was recalled May 2019. Judicial Watch learned that sometime before then, Yovanovitch “ordered monitoring keyed to the following search terms: Biden, Giuliani, Soros and Yovanovitch” and “prior to being recalled as ambassador to Ukraine in the spring Yovanovitch reportedly created a list of individuals who were to be monitored via social media and other means“. The surveillance list included Jack Posobiec, Donald Trump Jr., Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Michael McFaul, Dan Bongino, Ryan Saavedra, Rudy Giuliani, Sebastian Gorka, John Solomon, Lou Dobbs, Pamella Geller and Sara Carter. [Ingraham and Hannity – Nunes: “I bet there’s a lot of reporters at Fox that Rudy Giuliani spoke to that Adam Schiff at any given time could release that […] because he’s sitting on all those numbers”]. JW notes the Yovanovitch request was funneled through the Global Engagement Center “which has looser restrictrions on collecting information”. The Global Engagement Center was created in April 2016 [around the time of Adm. Rogers limited NSA database access] by Executive Order 13721 that directed other Federal agencies “to provide to the Center, and the Center is authorized to use, for the purpose of carrying out the responsibilities outlined in this order: […] (b) the use of physical premises, equipment, and logistical or administrative support; (c) relevant information, research, intelligence, and analysis. [NSA database backdoor?]. The Global Engagement Center staff includes detailees/liaison officers from DoD, IC, and USAGM as well as Contractors.

      Yup. Essentially, in a digital world, there are no practical imitations on this “two-hop” rule. The analogy of pulling two levels of call records comes from the old days of physical wiretapping. A better analogy for a FISA warrant is getting a warrant to pull on one knot of a massive fishing net.

      All data today is digitized and captured in NSA and government accessible private data bases like AT&T’s. Text messages, emails, faxes, document uploads/downloads, facial recognition from security cameras, credit card transactions, 27/7 geo-location from cellphone GPS, data collected by cellphone apps, web browsing history etc. Phone conversations and voice mails are automatically transcribed allowing keyword searches on them too.

    Time to get ahead of the curve…a few well known investigative journalists (Gregg Jarrett, Dan Bongino, Sara Carter etc) ought to send a legal inquiry to their phone providers and ask if any requests for their phone records has been received, from whom it came, and under what authority it was presented. Make it public so the carriers have to respond publicly. I’ll bet Schiff has more up his sleeve on this, a preemptive query will bring these abuses to light.

    The closing paragraph of the letter could cite chapter and verse from statutes that protect individual communications, and put the carriers on notice all appropriate legal action will be taken if those rights are abridged.

    An alternative could be one letter to all the carriers, signed by as many conservative journalists that can be mustered. What Schiff did tramples so many constitutional rights it needs to be exposed…

More importantly, a demand to know if their information has already been provided to Schiff makes the carriers complicit if they decline to respond…

        If Sundance’s theory above (they came from SDNY) is correct, and that can be established, then the next question is to SDNY and AG Barr – “why was this information provided, to whom, based on what authority and were other similar requests acccepted?”

    I accidentally posted this in the wrong story… it belonged here:

    Not saying there wasn’t a FISA warrant involved, but they all involve Rudy or Lev Parnas. My guess is that SDNY is investigating Rudy, too, in addition to Lev Parnas, and simply subpoenaed the information under a warrant. Properly issued warrant? Who knows. SDNY is probably leaking or talking to Schiff or his staff and passed along the information.

    First thing to note, these call logs don’t have the phone numbers listed. So when it says Lev Parnas, for all we know they’re the same phone or even different phones being used.

    There’s a phone call at 4:12 on April 12th from Lev Parnas to Nunes, duration 1:00. At 4:54, it appears Nunes (or whatever number has been attributed to Nunes) attempted to call back twice, with a 0:00 duration call and a 0:02 duration call. At 5:30 on April 12, there is a 8:34 call from Parnas to Nunes (again, a number attributed to Nunes).

    There’s no indication that these aren’t voicemails. There’s no indication that these are the same numbers each time attributed to Nunes.

    Nunes’ staff was also picked up, but I don’t see that in the call logs. It’s mentioned on page 56 in the narrative in the context of a call between Nune’s staff Derek Harvey and Rudy. Rudy here also being the common denominator.

    Nunes doesn’t seem to talk about the calls with Parnas, and doesn’t remember or deny speaking to Parnas.

    Parnas was arrested October 9th at Dulles airport on charges of planning to direct money from a foreign government to U.S. Politicians. So Schiff has likely had these phone records well before October 9.

    I still don’t see any indication of FISA two-hops here. The calls all seem to indicate Rudy and Parnas were being investigated, which has been reported in the news. Now, that doesn’t rule out that FISA warrants were obtained and Schiff doesn’t have FISA data, just that his report doesn’t indicate that, unless I’m missing something. It certainly wouldn’t surprise me if FISA was still being abused.

    Dirty tricks is what they do. It’s what they’re doing right now, this day this hour this minute and tomorrow. I would think our side would have figured this out by now. If this is a “new low”, just wait for the next one. Adapt.

    Talk is cheap. The Republican Party has been neutered.
    Not a soul in that political party that has the gonads to initiate a criminal investigation of the left and carry it to fruition to indict, try, and punish the left and send them to Fort Leavenworth, KS.

    The issue, beyond the probably illegal spying in the first place, is Schiffs inclusión of the log in his report.
    There is no reason to include any of the names beyond an attempt to smear. Nunes name for example could have been redacted.
    More importantly, the log once again actually works counter to the black hats intention. All the calls occur prior to Biden announcing candidacy.
    For the millionth time, the only possible impeachable offense is if aid was conditioned upon an investigation of the Bidens for the sole and solitary purpose of 2020 elections.

    I hate to hammer the point home but the Jordans turners nunes and other good guys have been approaching this wrongly from day one. This could have been shut down at least in the court of public opinion pretty quickly. Like mueller probe too.

    Know the law first by distilling the case to its essence. Then fight on those terms. Anything that black hats bring which is obviously extraneous to that is an object of ridicule.

    Insult them for insulting our intelligence. Do not hold back. Gaetz is the template.

    So is Nunes going to support renewing FISA?

    FISA was set up for ‘terrorists’. Did Nunez not realize that the left was going to define any non-leftist a ‘terrorist’?
