Tracing Adam Schiff’s Subpoena Hypocrisy

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

From Tom Fitton’s Op-Ed for The Washington Times:

Just a few years ago, Rep. Adam Schiff had no qualms using secret subpoenas to obtain the phone records of American citizens without their consent. But now, he is hypocritically complaining that his phone records were supposedly obtained by a grand jury.

During the 2019 Impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump, Mr. Schiff, as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, obtained the phone records of many prominent figures in the Trump orbit, including Rudy Giuliani, Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican, Jay Sekulow and others using secret subpoenas. Mr. Schiff then compounded his constitutional abuse by actually publishing these private phone records.

The targeted individuals hadn’t known about the subpoena of their phone records because Mr. Schiff kept the subpoenas under wraps and obtained the records directly from the phone companies. This left these citizens with no legal avenue through which to challenge Mr. Schiff’s subpoenas.

Unlike Mr. Schiff’s spy games, the Justice Department used a court-authorized grand jury process to obtain Mr. Schiff’s records as part of a criminal investigation into leaks of classified information that can harm national security. Mr. Schiff sanctimoniously referred to the investigation against him as a “cudgel against (Trump’s) political opponents and members of the media.” Instead of exposing Mr. Schiff’s hypocrisy, the mainstream media has given his dishonest rantings an airing.

Judicial Watch called out Mr. Schiff’s overreach in December 2019 when it filed a suit against Mr. Schiff and the House Intelligence Committee under the common law right of public access to government documents to ensure, “members of the public have the right to examine government records when the public interest in disclosure is greater than that in government secrecy.”
