Skip to comments.Would You Believe The Administration Got Phone Records of The House Of Representatives?
Posted on 05/15/2013 6:11:52 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
Thats the revelation made by California Congressman Devin Nunes, who sits on the House Ways And Means Committee on Hugh Hewitts Show Wednesday night. Heres the key part of that transcript:
HH: The idea that this might be a Geithner-Axelrod plan, and by that, the sort of intimation, Henry II style, will no one rid me of this turbulent priest, will no one rid me of these turbulent Tea Parties, that might have just been a hint, a shift of an eyebrow, a change in the tone of voice. Thats going to take a long time to get to. I dont trust the Department of Justice on this. Do you, Congressman Nunes?
DN: No, I absolutely do not, especially after this wiretapping incident, essentially, of the House of Representative. I dont think people are focusing on the right thing when they talk about going after the AP reporters. The big problem that I see is that they actually tapped right where Im sitting right now, the Cloak Room.

This is BIG!
That’s impeachment material. Worse than Nixon. In fact, that’s criminal prosecution after removal from office.
Methinks Valerie Jarrett went a bit too far.
The GOP won’t do squat!
Is POSHITUS switching tack and aiming for scandal fatigue?
I’m not trying to look all these gift horses in the mouth, but wow.
Wow, el presidente crossed someone for all this to be breaking....
This may be the next shoe.
Maybe the Clinton machine has the war room back to turn on Obama.
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I dont add you to the list...
Congress cannot stand for this. Holder and Obama must go.
Does the regime really expect us to believe that national security was in such immediate jeopardy that they were forced to obtain records of both the press and Congress, yet no one bothered to ever tell the President of the United States, that Obama learned of this when the American people did?
Kinda dwarfs the Watergate plumbers...
The GOP wont do squat!
That’s what they are hoping for, but I think they have finally gone too far. They really need to man up and call out the person in charge and impeach-Barack Hussein Obama.
why would they wiretap these wongos when every conversation is the same day after day
“whatta you want to do today”
“i dunno whatta you wanna do”
“hey check out the fins on that one....”
another racist shoe has dropped. But His Zeroness had nothing to do with this surely.
So what Congressman Nunes is saying is that when the DOJ tapped the AP, they picked up any members of Congress who were talking to the AP...
...but of course Holder knows nothing about this, absolutely nothing. That alone should be a firing offense. He is at BEST wholly incompetent. If the IRS commissioner got the ax for the “rogue actions” of low-level staffers, shouldn’t Holder get the same (though for a moment I don’t think he wasn’t in on this)?
Why do I think this avalanche of scandalous information is Hillary trying to knock Benghazi off the front pages?
DN: So when they went after the AP reporters, right? Went after all of their phone records, they went after the phone records, including right up here in the House Gallery, right up from where Im sitting right now. So you have a real separation of powers issue that did this really rise to the level that you would have to get phone records that would, that would most likely include members of Congress, because as you know
Yup. Askeered of riots by da brudders when their Homey gets dumped.
More intimidation by a bunch of low life gang bangers who never should have been in the White House, not even for a visit.
Before everyone goes TOO far off the deep end, the congressman mis-spoke when he said “tapping”. This was still discussing the obtaining of the AP phone records, not actually tapping lines. What the congressman was referring to is the fact that some of those phone records were records of calls between AP reporters and phones in the congressional cloak room. So those records could possibly show that certain congressmen were in touch with AP reporters, but ostensibly could not show what was discussed. That does not make it any better, but probably keeps it from reaching the “I” word...
Wow ....it’s unreal.
Well, not really.
The only thing that makes sense is the DNC is burning the whole thing down so they can say they washed their hands of it for ‘14.
Yep. But FR is going full tin foil today.
Deport Hillary!, Holder, and Sideshow Barack to Mombasa, and let them fling their hate-whitey, hate-men, hate-Constitution excrement in the direction the USA all they want from there.
Will anyone be surprised if we learn they did more than obtain records? #taping
Hope it is on Drudge; the 60M medical records lawsuit against the IRS isn’t there either.
No, but at this point there is no evidence to support such a claim. I don't want us to go nuclear on that front unless/until we have proof.
The Prez SPIED on the Legislative Branch. On Congress.
That’s like one of the three arms branches of gov’t making WAR on another one of those branches.
How is this not treason...?
This is the most serious scandal in US political history.
If one is investigating leaks, what would be the purpose of only tracking
phone numbers and not phone conversations? You can bet these conversations were recorded.
Holder is higher up on the organization chart of his actual employers than his fellow employee Obama.
And their excuse is still “after the national security leak”?
Who would believe them at this point?
I was listening to HH tonight. I thought maybe I misheard what he said. Nope. This just got a LOT hotter.
I thought POSHITUS looked unusually peppy, enthusiastic at the podium today. That was probably the deal Pelosi laid out for him and Hillary in that one hour visit at her house at the ‘08 primaries... do as much damage as you can, we’ll get both you out before you face any real pain...........
Maybe Pelosi and VJ are the real operators together.
A mini Saturday Night Massacre on the way perhaps? Holder? maybe Big Sis? When DHS put Tea Party and retired military groups on watch lists IRS jumps onboard and starts their shenanigans. Throw in the Boston bombings for good measure.
What difference does it make?
What could one half of one third of the US government possibly do?
Time now to start Obama’s going away party.
Is this real?
I can imagine Congress not caring about a few AP reporters. I’m sure the dems don’t care about Tea Partiers and neither do the RINOs, but this hits them close to home.
Not only that, but even if there were just a few targeted, how can they be sure? First the Republicans. Then a dem or two who didn’t vote as he was told, ....
Just to clarify, the obtained phone record showed only who’s calling whom at what time?
No actual content was included?
What we have is evidence of a willingness to do whatever they deemed necessary to get their way. Not a month ago we learned a senator’s office was bugged. Congressional Republicans had better consider the possibility that all of their conversations have been recorded. I’m not suggesting we accuse them without evidence. Instead I am suggesting we cannot take their word as to the extent of their malfeasance.
Yeah they did in fact threathen “ pay backs “ just before the election.
per homeland security, they have all the phone conversations. everybody, everywhere. given the information that the phone records provide, I bet they sure has hell could find out about the calls contents.
You almost expect to see something like this before Obama leaves office.
Last night at 23:37.12 32 nuclear warheads were targeted and launched into Russia. 27 warheads impacted and destructed on impact. However, five warheads operated as designed causing major destruction under where they detonated.
Reached for comment this morning, Obama was unable to say who had fired off the nuclear warheads. His staff is checking into it as we go to air...
27 nuclear warheads having been ordered to stand down (in effect), and this not being able to take place unless the POTUS presidential codes are used, it is baffling that Obama has no clue..., once again.
Senator Reid, Representative Nancy Pelosi, and a pastle of past Obama supporters labeled this another Tea Party conspiracy, almost as dire as the one reportedly launched against Hillary Clinton years ago.
It’s all so unfair to the Democrats, specifically Obama.
The Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, and a myriad of other papers exonerated the president today.
Speaker Boehner said he understood how this could happen, and upon hearing that John McCain said, “You betcha!” “Hee yaaa!”
Maybe congress will finally start to realize that the US Intelligence-National Police apparat is very much out of control.
The US Intelligence Community include 16 major intelligence agencies.
And over 100 federal police agencies.
The trouble is that there is only need for a small amount of this intelligence and police work, and the rest is becoming more and more intrusive, because otherwise they would have nothing to do.
They don’t have enough real enemies, so they are turning on their friends.
His sentence is a little confusing. For sure they have the record that reporter A spoke to Congressman B. But do they have the transcript of what was said?
Yeah. Oddly enough, although I could find a WHOLE bunchcha graphics with Big-eared Bush and various republican operatives listening in, I couldn’t find a good one with The Won or any democrat.
Just pretend the GOP elephant on the cap is an Obama O...
