Schiff & The House Intelligence Committee Rocked By Lawsuit For Issuing Congressional Subpoenas For Private Phone Records, Judicial Watch Serves As Plaintiff


(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced it today filed a lawsuit against Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the House Intelligence Committee for the controversial subpoenas issued for phone records, including those of Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer.

The phone records led to the publication of the private phone records of Giuliani, Congressman Devon Nunes, journalist John Solomon, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, attorney Victoria Toensing, and other American citizens.

In Judicial Watch v Adam Schiff and U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (No. 1:19-cv-03790) the watchdog agency sued under the public’s common-law right of public access to examine government records.

 JW is suing for the following records:

-All subpoenas issued by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on or about September 30, 2019 to any telecommunications provider including, but not limited to AT&T, Inc., for records of telephone calls of any individuals;

-All responses received to the above-referenced subpoenas.

It shouldn’t take a degree in civics to understand the threat Chairman Schiff’s overreach poses to the civil liberties of every American.
