Schiff: ‘Simply False’ We Subpoenaed Call Records of Rep. Nunes

Pam Key
Breitbart
8 Dec 2019

On Sunday’s broadcast of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) denied using his subpoena power to obtain Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) phone records.

Partial transcript as follows:

BRENNAN: You know, in the 300 page report that your committee put out, it included some call logs, including numbers related to Congressman Nunes and a journalist and there has been a lot of blowback on you having published this. Upon reflection, should you have made that public?

SCHIFF: Well, absolutely. And the blowback has only come from the- the far right. But look, every investigator seeks phone records to corroborate, sometimes to contradict, a witnesses’ testimony. And here we had testimony that the president charged Rudy Giuliani with carrying out this plot, that he told Ambassador Volger- Volker and Perry and Sondland to talk to Rudy. And, in fact, Ambassador Volker testified about talking to Rudy. And so naturally, we wanted phone records to show they had those conversations and indeed, they did.

BRENNAN: Yeah.

SCHIFF: But it’s very important to point out, we did not subpoena Devin Nunes’ call records. We did not subpoena any journalist’s call records. And that is simply false information being pushed by the president’s allies. But the fact that Mr. Nunes or Giuliani or others show up in this scheme doesn’t make them irrelevant, doesn’t give them a pass.

So Shifty, did you use a National Security Letter which does not require a judge's approval, and cannot seek content but only record data such as phone numbers and times and call, etc.?

I think so. My take is that Schiff is saying that Nunes and some journalist turned up as making calls to or receiving calls from the subpoena targets when the Dems subpoened the call records of the various ambassadors, looking for corroboration that they had called Rudy.

Schiff isn't denying that Nunes' name came up, just that Nunes and some journalist were not the subpoena targets.

I'm still not sure who the journalist was or if the Dems had any interest in him/her.

They published the information of a congressman, a lawyer, and a journalist.

The congressman is Devin Nunes, the lawyer is Rudy Giuliani, and the journalist is John Solomon.

For a National Security Letter (NSL) the matter sought should relate to national security investigations, and the results for congressmen, lawyers, and journalists should be subject to minimization procedures.

That's my take also. But my point was that Nunes was not part of the investigation and, therefore, his calls should have been excluded/blacked out from the report.

After all, Schiff claimed that the phone records were simply to seek "to corroborate, sometimes to contradict, a witnesses’ testimony".

Not quite. He stated a warrant was not obtained for Nunes' phone records.

Nunes' phone calls showed up on other phone records which were subpoenaed.

An NSL (an administrative warrant) can inquire several hops deep, does not require prior approval of a judge, and provides precisely what the Dems have displayed. I know of no evidnce or admission of the existence of a warrant. Obtaining a search warrant for the records of a congressman, lawyer, or journalist is somewhat challenging. It may be a case of obtaining a warrant from a FISA court for a foreign national, and then following one or two hops to get to the rest.

Also, obtaining and publishing the acquired data are two seperate issues. For what purpose was John Solomon's data published to the public?

https://www.thedailybeast.com/adam-schiff-no-we-didnt-subpoena-john-solomons-phone-records

"The House Intel committee tells The Daily Beast that they did not subpoena the phone records for Devin Nunes or John Solomon."

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/editorials/why-is-adam-schiff-sniffing-around-the-phone-records-of-reporters-and-congressmen

Maybe it's a crazy idea, but there probably ought to be a presumption against leaking a political rival's phone activity in this manner. In fact, Schiff's behavior in this regard resembles that for which he now hopes to impeach the president.

There are other concerns here, as well. In the context of executive law enforcement, Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures generally require permission from judges or magistrates. In other words, the “checks and balances” of the system require two of the three branches, not just one, to agree that the search is necessary and lawful. If Congress, meaning Schiff, acted without judicial imprimatur, then the legitimacy of his phone-records search is certainly questionable.

Meanwhile, if he did subpoena Solomon’s calls — again, this is not entirely clear — that would also raise serious issues related to press freedoms, in addition to the Fourth Amendment concerns. Schiff needs to clear up why Solomon’s calls were included in his dragnet. Their release appears to be an act of petty vengeance against someone whose reporting followed the wrong narrative.

“Bondy said that in a phone conversation Nunes told Parnas that he was conducting his own investigation into the Bidens and asked Parnas for help validating information he’d gathered from conversations with various current and former Ukrainian officials, including Shokin,” CNN reports....

...It’s unclear whether the activities involving Firtash intersect with Nunes. The same cast of characters who met regularly as a group — Giuliani, Fruman, Parnas, Solomon, Toensing and diGenova — were involved in the Firtash scheme, and Nunes repeatedly amplifies their work including Solomon’s articles, which Nunes read into the congressional record during the impeachment hearing.

You would think the FISA court would be very reluctant to grant any further subpoenas or search warrants or wiretaps. The FISA court is already under considerable scrutiny for their misdeeds earlier in the "collusion" scandal.

From the hearing - there were six warrants, I'm not sure from where, one for the records of Giuliani. The lawyer for the Dems refused to answer when Rep. Doug Collins asked him who ordered the cross checking to identify John Solomon and Devin Nunes as the owners of two of the calling numbers.

Yes, the testimony did mention Devin Nunes as I had been watching this testimony since 10 am this morning. What bothers me is why the NSA is not being subpoenaed to testify regarding the nature of the information Schiff supplied using a "National Security letter" (as nolan chan puts it) to compel those to talk.

Today's testimony is that there were six warrants, one for Guiliani, none cited for Nunes or Solomon. Upon how the derivative information was obtained, or who order it to be obtained or published, counsel refused to answer.

My comment about a National Security Letter is conjecture. A FISA warrant could have been obtained against a foreign national. If it were a two hop warrant, they could have obtained the data of U.S. nationals. A problem is that there appears to be no excuse for not following minimization procedures and publishing the data as belonging to Congressman #1 or Journalist #1.

Also today, Dem counsel Barry Berke gave unsworn testimony, made a disparaging comment about Trump, and a motion to strike was denied by Nadler on the grounds that the cited rule did not apply to Berke because he was a witness. Shortly thereafter, Berke was functioning for the Dems as their counsel and asking question of the GOP lawyer. This was challenged as Berke had been declared a witness. I don't recall ever before seeing a witness questioning the lawyers under oath in a proceeding. What a cluster foxtrot.

No, this would have been the earlier House Intelligence Committee testimony. The only mention of Nunes (searching the .pdf written report) is either in footnotes or in the section on phone records.

My point is, he wasn't mentioned by the witnesses.

I don't understand why Berke's testimony would have any weight since his was unsworn. Either these democrats are serious about making these charges or they are not. I hope that when this so-called hearing is done, and Trump overcomes them all, that he sues them too.

In any case, nothing the attorneys say is evidence. They are not witnesses to anything. The three law professors each testified that he or she had no knowledge of any material fact in the report. The report contains a disclaimer that it is not necessarily the opinion of the committee or any member of the committee.

While House Rule XI (j)(1) provides, "(j)(1) Whenever a hearing is conducted by a committee on a measure or matter, the minority members of the committee shall be entitled, upon request to the chair by a majority of them before the completion of the hearing, to call witnesses selected by the minority to testify with respect to that measure or matter during at least one day of hearing thereon." Chairman Nadler has so far defied GOP efforts to avail themselves of that mandatory entitlement.

I would like to see the Dem internal polls. I think they want the GOP to just kill it as quickly as possible in the Senate. They should go to trial and subpoena Shifty and Sloppy.

I begin to wonder if the House committees have violated their own procedural rules so often in the expectation that McConnell will rule the entire impeachment proceedings illegal and declare there will be no Senate trial until they follow their own rules or amend them. And that is a distinct possibility. McConnell would get all the blame, Dems could give up in frustration and blame McConnell, etc. It would work for Pelosi who didn't want impeachment to begin with.

And that is why Trump has proclaimed that he wants a trial.

The Dems went so far out over their skis that they can't pull back. What could they and the media say? Trump is Hitler and the devil rolled into one, but we have decided to give him a pass?

The House Intel committee Report was issued 3 Dec 2019. That report, with the records therein, was issued after the Intel committee proceedings were over.

Correct. And before the Judiciary hearings were held.

So when goldilucky said (post #14) he heard Nunes' name mentioned on 12/9, it was during the Judiciary hearings.

My point was, Nunes' name was not brought up by witnesses during the House Intelligence Committee hearing, yet Schiff included his phone records "to verify witness testimony".
