Nunes: Schiff Violated My ‘Civil Liberties’ With Phone Snooping

Rep. Devin Nunes said Wednesday that House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff violated his civil liberties by snooping in his phone records and publishing them in his impeachment report.

Schiff released a report Tuesday summarizing the impeachment testimony. None of the information in the report was new — except for the inclusion of phone records suggesting coordination between Nunes and President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Schiff declined to say when or how he had obtained the records, but Nunes noted Schiff had issued a subpoena to AT&T for several phone numbers.

I’m going to be looking for all my legal options on this, too,” Nunes added. “I mean, my civil liberties were violated here. … Adam Schiff, just because he’s chairman, doesn’t have the right to go subpoena — put a big fishing net out there — go grab a bunch of phone numbers, and have AT&T give you all the people they’ve talked to, and then him smear me and say, “Oh, he had all these conversations with Rudy Giuliani.”
