Skip to comments.Schiff’s Surveillance State: The Democrat demands, and then discloses, the call logs of his opponents.
Posted on 12/05/2019 4:38:20 AM PST by karpov
Democrats are trying to convince Americans that President Trump should be ousted for trying to dig up dirt on a rival. Theyd have more credibility if they didnt abuse their surveillance powers for drive-by smears of Republicans and a free press.
Adam Schiffs 300-page House Intelligence impeachment report doesnt include much new about Mr. Trumps Ukrainian interventions. But it does disclose details of telephone calls between ranking Intelligence Republican Devin Nunes, Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, reporter John Solomon, former Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, the White House, and others. The details are metadata about the numbers and length of the calls, not the content.
The impeachment press is playing this as if the calls are a new part of the scandal, but the real outrage here is Mr. Schiffs snooping on political opponents. The Democrats motive appears to be an attempt to portray Mr. Nunes, a presidential defender and Mr. Schiffs leading antagonist in Congress, as part of a conspiracy to commit impeachable offenses.
It is, I think, deeply concerning, that at a time when the President of the United States was using the power of his office to dig up dirt on a political rival, that there may be evidence that there were members of Congress complicit in that activity, Mr. Schiff told the press on Tuesday. Complicit in what? Doing his job of Congressional oversight? Talking to Mr. Trumps lawyer to get a complete view of the Ukrainian tale? Apparently Mr. Schiff now wants to impeach Members of Congress too.
This is unprecedented and looks like an abuse of government surveillance authority for partisan gain. Democrats were caught using the Steele dossier to coax the FBI into snooping on the 2016 Trump campaign. Now we have elected members of Congress using secret subpoenas.

Let us hear Adam Schiff’s phone calls to that underage girl.
Adam Schiff needs to be in prison as soon as possible.
Brennan is still the ringleader, leading the coup from outside. The rest are his minions.
Not to defend the Dems but it wasn’t secret. Nunes said on Levin they saw the subpeona a month ago but apparently the GOP were too lazy to research whose phone numbers Schiff was subpoenaing.
One does wonder when Barr is going to get off his lazy ass while this goes on and while Epstein’s associates die at very inconvenient times for the prosecution (his banker and his plastic surgeon).
The real problem is that no Dem is being held accountable for this garbage, at least not so far.
Yes. An appallingly lawless state for the Dem politicians. I am in a state of shock at the FACT that any Dem can commit any crime they want and never be held accountable.
Do you remember how the media pushed for 8+ years how scandal-free the Obama administration was, despite how ridiculous that claim was?
Now that the other party is in the white house, the opposite narrative is being cultivated and propagated, with a great deal of machination and scheming.
Apparently, the formula adopted by the axis of evil (DNC, deep-state, and the collusive media) is simple; Chances of “us” winning is directly proportional to the perception of Trump scandal subtracted by the perception of democrat scandal.
This all isn’t just scandal peddling by the media.
It’s a long term conspiracy by a lot of people in power.
So it seems. And the next scam will be that the results of the Barr-Durham investigation will be kept secret all next year because they don’t want to interfere with the election.
In a sane world Adam Schiff would be flipping burgers for a living.
...the real outrage here is Mr. Schiffs snooping on political opponents. The Democrats motive appears to be an attempt to portray Mr. Nunes, a presidential defender and Mr. Schiffs leading antagonist in Congress, as part of a conspiracy to commit impeachable offenses.
In other words Schiff-for-brains and the democrats are blatantly guilty of exactly what they are trying to manufacture against the President. The leftists are accusing others of the crimes they themselves are openly committing. What...a...shock... :-/

I would’ve guessed boy. I think you give him too much credit.
Fixed it for you. Schiff is a chickenhawk.
I think schiff is more into underage boys.
I suspect that Barr is a swamp critter himself. At this point I would only trust sekulow as the AG.
Tomorrow. He has already solved the Epstein murder, it was suicide, he watched the videos, you know, the ones they said didn't exist because of malfunctions.
Those here that believe Barr will help the President are just deluding themselves, if he were going to help, then the classified documents that the President gave him the authority to release, would already be public. (Unless of course they wouldn't help)
Negative thinkers are always right........... or pleasantly surprised.
Really sucks doesn't it. I refused to watch any TV coverage of the last election preferring to see if we chose suicide or not. I didn't like but the voters or the vote fixers gave us Suicide. Once we accept that it gets easier.
There is a White Knight coming but we have rejected Him.
