He isn’t out of the woods yet.
Rep. Devin Nunes admitted that he is still considering “all” legal options against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for releasing his private phone records during the impeachment trail against President Trump.
“We’re going to look at all the legal remedies that we can take,” Nunes said according to the Washington Examiner. Nunes later added that the issue is “complicated” due to the “corrupt Democratic Congress” and because “the fake news media make up and build narratives.”
“I’m in California, so for sure, state law, you cannot release somebody’s phone records,” Nunes stated. “So, for sure, that right has been violated. But, we also have to look at the constitutional aspects of this, and do all the members of Congress have a right to privacy, and can just one member, because he doesn’t like someone and he’s a political opponent of someone, can that member just subpoena records and then release just to embarrass or to create a distraction or to build whatever fantasy-land narrative that they continue to build?” You can read the full details of this story here.
