Nunes Says “We’re definitely going to take legal action” Over Schiff Phone Snooping

Appearing on Fox and Friends, Rep. Nunes confirmed he is going to take legal action after House Intel Chair publicly released his phone records he obtained via subpoena.

“I believe I am the first member of Congress ever to have [my] phone records exposed like this,” Nunes told the Fox and Friends hosts “We’re definitely going to take legal action.”


Fox News reports Nunes told the “Friends: Weekend” hosts that, upon review, his phone records do not match what Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and House Democrats put in the report.

“So, you did not talk to Lev Parnas, for example, as many times as they’re alleging?” asked Henry.

“Well, let me tell you what I have. I can tell you that, it doesn’t match. Okay?” Nunes replied. “So, I have one call with Rudy Giuliani in April, one in May. Substantive calls…The rest of the calls are where either somebody didn’t connect or it was a voicemail, right?”

Nunes also recognized an incoming call from a woman who he had assumed was Parnas’ wife.

“I would do what I would normally do in a situation where you don’t recognize somebody, you don’t know somebody: you say ‘thank you very much. Let me get you to the appropriate staff person,'” he noted.

“So, did you ever have a substantive conversation with Lev Parnas about information in Ukraine — yes or no?” Henry probed further.

“I didn’t recognize the name until just in the last month when he was indicted, because I didn’t know who the person was,” said Nunes. “I can tell you that there’s no way that I talked about me being in Vienna meeting with random Ukrainians; that didn’t happen. Right? So, I can tell you we didn’t talk about that because that didn’t happen.”

Nunes said that Schiff is “in touch” with Parnas all the time, and if there’s a “problem with Parnas” they need to “investigate themselves.”

“And so, the truth is two calls with Rudy Giuliani and one call with a guy that I don’t even know seems pretty odd to say that that’s a conspiracy,” he added.

“I believe I am the first member of Congress ever to have [my] phone records exposed like this,” Nunes stated. “We’re definitely going to take legal action.”
