[Ed. – Sowing a new era of distrust in government.]
Some journalists are beginning to worry that their phone records may have been caught up in snooping conducted by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and revealed in the House Intelligence Committee’s 300-page impeachment report.
In the report, which Schiff unveiled on Tuesday, the committee uses AT&T phone records to draw connections between Ranking Member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), and his staff; President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani; investigative journalist John Solomon; and now-indicted Ukrainian-American businessman Lev Parnas.
The report lists phone calls between the named individuals — though it does not describe the content of the calls — and suggests that all were part of a scheme to “smear” former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. The “smear campaign” forms part of Democrats’ case against the president.
