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?

      Not to mention the Flynn trap. The FBI ask Nunes about his conversations with Parnas. Nunes doesn’t remember a 2 minute call and says he hasn’t spoken to Parnas. The FBI changes the 302 to indicate Nunes was lying. Boom. Fiances ruined, reputation shattered, job lost, family destroyed, die in prison.

    There is, at this point, no way of knowing how many more call records this slug has. It would be prudent to assume the POS has more in abeyance waiting for the right moment or use.

    You can play defense all you want but they will never stop. Eventually, unless they’re crushed, they will get you.

    There is not a doubt in my mind that PT wants to be a good president for ALL the citizens but he is not a pol and he doesn’t NEED this job.

    Rather than die by a thousand petty, sneaky, low life cuts and eventually have to surrender, just burn it all to the ground. Half of us know it’s rotten to the core and can’t ever be repaired or function as originally intended.

        Are you kidding me, Trump thrives in this environment. He is a counter-puncher. To be an effective counter-fighter, you have to have incoming punches. A counter-fighter takes the incoming and uses the offense to set up a trap, and therefore creates opportunity to counter. In other words, a counter-fighter uses the weight of the opponent to against them.

        Where you and I would fall apart under the constant attacks, Trump is fueled off of them.,

The left has made it clear they will initiate multiple criminal investigations against Trump and his entire family once he is out of office, independent of the success of impeachment / removal from office. If he doesn’t take down the left cabal during his second term the Trump family will never be out of the shit.

    Talking negatively about, and later recalling, a corrupt US Ambassador is one of 25,000 reasons I voted for Trump. It wasn’t illegal.

    Yovanovitch was anything but “anti-corruption” as Schiff’s report repeatedly claims. She lied in Congress about knowing about the Bidens’ improper dealings.

    Throw her and Kent and the Biden’s on the same pile of crooks that need investigation along with Hillary, Obama, Comey, Clapper, etc., etc.

    You know why our government does’t work? There are not enough honorable men like Nunes in it.

    We need a rewrite so that ONLY people who reside in the state can send money to or lobby their reps or ANY public office, including dog-catcher. Businesses should only be able to lobby in proportion to the number of people they employ within the state. Right now, it is in the interests of China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russian and others to spend big money to flip small offices, community organizing their way to a point where the states are run entirely by compromised individuals or willing puppets of the globalists.

                Think about it, the California residents that live in red counties are hit just as hard by oppressive taxes, regulations, mismanagement as those that live in liberal counties. Who do you think is more likely to leave and move to a red state.

  9. thedoc00 says:

    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.

    Also, for those asking why the Republicans do not issue subpoenas, look no further than House and/or Senate Rules. Unless approval is specifically (and carefully) allocated to a Committee Chair for a specific reason, those requests have to be approved by the Leadership of the respective legislative body. This is the reason Ryan hung on to the Speakership until January 2019, he squashed every subpoena attempt made by Nunes and Freedom caucus members. We all know where McConnell stand v/v supporting the President.

If Ronna/RNC have no ground work to recruit and support viable candidates in 2020, the Schiff show will continue as long as PDJT is in office.

      Read Term Limits, Vince Flynn’s first novel.
      Summary from Goodreads:

      In one bloody night, three of Washington’s most powerful politicians are executed with surgical precision. Their assassins then deliver a shocking ultimatum to the American government: set aside partisan politics and restore power to the people. No one, they warn, is out of their reach—not even the president.

      A joint FBI-CIA task force reveals the killers are elite military commandos, but no one knows exactly who they are or when they will strike next. Only Michael O’Rourke, a former U.S. Marine and freshman congressman, holds a clue to the violence: a haunting incident in his own past with explosive implications for his country’s future ..

    Lil’ Adam Schiff acts like he is obstructing justice. Like he’s abusing his powers to manage the information flow that leads to his own personal crimes. This begs the question: of all the IMF funds gone missing, how much of it filtered it’s way back to him, and or his family?

    Did Lil’ Adam Schiff facilitate OCUS illegal campaign funds to the Clinton foundation?

    Of (what appears to be) the Epstein CIA blackmail operations, what was his involvement?

  16. arze says:

    Attorney Leslie McAdoo Gordon, in a Federalist essay published this morning, says Schiff was in his right to obtain the call records, which did not include contents of those telephone calls, but her analysis missed an essential ingredient that she should have address, which might have altered her analysis.

    She says there is nothing that can be done as that is legal.

    However, in dispute, which she did not address at all, is the requirement that any Congressional Committee action MUST have a legislative purpose.

    Absent a legislative purpose, Congress does not have absolute authority to subpoena individuals nor records, in fact, that would be unconstitutional. Congressional power is wide and sweeping, but not absolute, as No One Is Above The Law.

    There has been no vote to Impeach President Trump. Only if a president is impeached, may a Congress assert their own “prosecutorial” rights to subpoena material that is outside of its core function of legislating.

    Prosecuting is not legislating, but Impeachment grants them the extra subpoena power.

    Absent a vote that is passed to impeach a president, this congress had no right to those telephone records as that has nothing to do with creating laws.

    Or, at minimum, the subpoena will go to the supreme court.

    What is instructive is a similar ongoing legal brouhaha viz. Trump’s tax returns.

    Shortly after Trump was elected, when Republicans controlled both houses of congress, the following was stated in an essay as follows, from University of Iowa law professor Andy Grewal, posted Feb. 2017 at Yale Journal on Regulation:

    [[[Even if a congressional committee requests President Trump’s tax returns from the IRS, President Trump may have a constitutional defense to disclosure. That is, although Section 6103(f) is phrased in absolute terms — it allows tax committees and the JCT Chief of Staff to obtain tax return information, without qualification — any congressional action, including requests for information, must come within the scope of legislative powers granted by Article I of the Constitution. And a request for President Trump’s tax returns, if made for purely political purposes, may exceed legislative powers.]]]

    This is why the ongoing battle over Trump’s tax returns may go to Supreme Court — and exactly why recent House phone records subpoenas may, also go to SC; because: what is the legislative purpose of obtaining them?

    The House has yet to vote to actually Impeach, as they may not have the votes — if they did, they would have already.

    And if they did, the constitutionality of the phone records subpoena would not be in dispute.

    This is one reason why they are rushing around.

    They are flying by the seat of their pants.

    Keep in mind that impeachment proceedings require an actual vote of Congress; this part has been wonderfully obscured over and over and over again by politicians and so called news reporters.

    Put another way, a “proceeding” cannot become a “proceeding” until it begins. An impeachment “proceeding” actually become one — only after it has begun. Absent an impeachment vote, we have, in the present example, slap dash and tomfoolery.

    On “legislative purpose,” see below, which is from page 56, of Congressional Research Service, report titled: “Congress’s Contempt Power and the Enforcement of Congressional Subpoenas: Law, History, Practice, and Procedure” (Updated May 12, 2017)

    This publication states:
    [[[Legislative Purpose
    A committee’s investigation must have a legislative purpose or be conducted pursuant to some other constitutional power of the Congress, such as the authority of each House to discipline its own Members, to judge the returns of their elections, and to conduct impeachment proceedings]]]

    And by the way, you can expect Congress to argue this is a legislative function, using Supreme Court Precedent from Wilkinson v. United States, 365 U.S. 399 (1961).

    This decision concludes as follows:

    [[[The Subcommittee’s legitimate legislative interest was not the activity in which petitioner might have been engaged at the time, but in the manipulation and infiltration of activities and organizations by persons advocating the overthrow of the Government.]]]

    In other words, Treason.

    Just in case anyone is really wondering why the Christopher Steele/Obama/Mueller/Clapper/Brennan/Biden/Clinton/Simpson/Jacoby/Blumenthal/Yates/Rosenstein/McCabe/Comey/McCarthy DOSSIER just won’t go away. . . .

      thanks Arze.
      there are two issues on the phone log
      1) the legality of subpoenaing the records
      2) the legality of publishing the results of the subpoena in their report

      overarching both of these issues is the main, obvious, yet never remarked point:
      the phone records predate Biden’s announcement of candidacy.
      there is no possible impeachable offense pre biden announcement.
      therefore, the subpoena and the publishing of the results are illegal on their face.

        If the article is correct, then Congress can subpoena the records. Whether that requires a legitimate legislative purpose could be an issue.

        I do agree that Biden was an issue being looked into before Biden announced, and therefore you can’t impeach Trump over it – at all. Otherwise, you can rob a bank, rape all the women in the lobby, burn down the bank, and exceed the speed limit fleeing the scene, and then announce your bid for President to avoid investigation.

  23. You KNOW the records are fake, because it is the result of Schiff casting about for “proof” (of anything, like his own competence as a human being), and everything he has tried is pure fake. He probably got them with CIA (and revenge-minded AT&T Democrat, in just the right position) help, and illegally. That should be a given, unless and until it is proved otherwise. HE HAS NO CREDIBILITY.

    And what is the point anyway? Phone calls only a few (or zero) seconds long? I visualize this latest farce as only appropriate for Alice in Wonderland.


  24. ATheoK says:

    “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?”

    A suggestion would be that a SDNY staffer or associated FBI agent hopped a shuttle flight from NYC to DC.

    Which brings up a curious question: Blasey-Ford had an FBI friend who supposedly worked with SDNY.
    In a recent Daily Caller article, they showed a picture of Lisa Page walking down a hallway with what looks to be Blasey-Ford’s friend in the center.

    For an FBI employee working with SDNY, her presence in Washington DC is disturbing on multiple fronts, not just her “helping” Lisa Page. If she is commuting back and forth from NYC, she makes a likely carrier for democrat corruption.

    Sundance, you have extraordinary research skills and are a font of vital information and wisdom.

    Does Adam Schiff have the authority to file an application for a FISA warrant? This is normally the purview of the DOJ/FBI. The DOJ has the job of enforcing the law, which involves seeking court warrants to surveil/investigate people.

    Congress, which has the power to enact laws, impeach Executive and Judiciary elected officials and appointed officers, and declare war (and the Senate to approve Executive nominations and treaties), has the power to issue subpoenas, and contempt citations, and to make referrals to the DOJ for prosecutions, and to file court motions against non-compliars of its subpoenas, may not have the authority to file FISA warrants. If Ristvan or another lawyer could clarify on this, it would be appreciated.

    What I think happened is Schiff issued a congressional subpoena to AT&T for phone records, which may or may not have been valid, and then he was able to get someone in the NSA to provide names to the phone numbers involved.

    Whether Schiff had legal authority to get this info from NSA is not clear to me. The NSA is under DOD, which means it is under the President–i.e. it is an Executive division. There may be some arcane law that allows the Legislative Branch to issue lawful orders to the NSA, re searching and unmasking phone numbers, and if this is the case, it’s worth a story in its own right. i am dubious of this.I suspect Schiff took an unauthorized “shortcut”.
