‘AT&T has a lot to answer for’; Schiff reportedly opens himself up to lawsuits over phone records
If certain newfound accusations are legit, then it’s not President Donald Trump who deserves to be investigated, but rather House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff, the telecommunications giant AT&T and the National Security Agency, aka the “Deep State.”
These newfound accusations specifically concern Schiff’s highly controversial decision to obtain and then publish the phone records of Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, the president’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, non-establishment journalist John Solomon and others.
While nobody in the demonstrably left-wing mainstream media has shown even the slightest concern about this “disgraceful breach of ethical and legal propriety,” as The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly Strassel put it, the folks at Fox News have.
“I want to know all the people Adam Schiff is spying on. Are there other members of Congress that he is spying on? And what justification does he have?” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise told the Washington Examiner on Wednesday.https://t.co/XgD0HmKqwr

According to Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s sources, Schiff obtained these records by first going to AT&T with some phone numbers and asking for information on them.
“They asked them ‘tell us what these numbers have been engaged in. What calls these numbers have been making and placing.’ They took that information. They went to the NSA, aka the ‘Deep State,’ then gave them the information that it was Rudy and other,” she claimed Thursday evening on her weekday FNC program, citing “reliable sources.”
If true, this places Schiff, AT&T and the NSA in precarious positions.
Speaking with Ingraham, former CIA analyst and current Center for Security Policy president and CEO Fred Fleitz highlighted all the criticism that the NSA faced in prior times for its warrantless surveillance operations against the American people.
“We know how controversial phone records are, how much trouble the NSA got for using them,” he said. “There are real restrictions on them, and [yet] Adam Schiff used them to get information on Devin Nunes and to smear him, to get information on Giuliani, the president’s attorney, and to get information on John Solomon, a journalist that Democrats hate.”
Equally troublesome is AT&T’s decision to comply with the House Intelligence Committee chair’s politically motivated demands, Fleitz added.
“What I want to know is why did AT&T comply with this request, because when the NSA asks, AT&T always says no. So why? Because a powerful Democratic congressman asked for this information. AT&T has a lot to answer for,” he maintained.
“In addition, AT&T certainly knew one of those numbers was Nunes’ phone. And knew that they were providing this information to Congress. Frankly, they should have went to the Justice Department or the FBI or a court before they provided that information.”
“This really should be investigated,” he added.

Fleitz concluded his statement by turning his attention back to the key suspect, Adam Schiff.
