As part of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, Schiff investigated phone records of Devin Nunes.
Schiff declined to say how the House obtained the phone records.
Per TheHill, Tuesday’s report laid out additional contacts among prominent figures in the impeachment inquiry, including Nunes, the Intelligence Committee’s top Republican.
Records showed Nunes and a member of his staff were in contact with Giuliani and Parnas in April and May. On April 12, Nunes and Parnas spoke for more than eight minutes, according to call records.
Parnas has since been indicted on allegations of campaign finance law violations, and Giuliani is reportedly under investigation by federal prosecutors.
Matt Gaetz suggested if Nunes phone records are to be made public, Adam Schiff’s phone numbers should now be investigated.
If Adam Schiff is going to be getting the phone logs of Republicans like Devin Nunes, I want to see Adam Schiffs call logs.
I want to see how many times he and the members of his staff coordinated with the whistleblower.

Breitbart reports the revelation that Schiff had obtained telephone records related to Nunes was the only new revelation in the report, which otherwise re-hashed Democrats’ arguments in favor of impeaching Trump for allegedly asking Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election.
In a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Schiff declined to say when the committee had obtained the records, but given the Democrats’ repeated questions during the inquiry about administration officials who had worked with Nunes, such as former Intelligence Committee staffer (now National Security Council official) Kash Patel, it is likely the Democrats sought those records before or during the hearings.
The report cites media reports that Lev Parnas, an associate of Rudy Giuliani who has ben indicted on campaign finance charges, claimed that Nunes tried to meet with Ukrainians to “dig up dirt” on former Vice President Joe Biden. (Nunes had threatened to sue those media outlets, and did so on Tuesday, suing CNN for defamation; he does not appear to have been given an opportunity to answer the allegations in the report.)
Shifts report also cites “phone records” showing apparent conversations between Giuliani and Nunes, as well as Parnas and Nunes, in April 2019, around the time that then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was criticized in the media. The report also cites records of phone calls between Giuliani and Nunes staffer Derek Harvey, as well as between Giuliani and Patel. The phone records were apparently obtained from AT&T, according to a footnote in the report.
