A subpoena has to assert its lawful authority. Schiff used his authority pursuant to lawmaking to gather Nunes' phone records ostensibly as part of a criminal investigation and without probable cause. With a private phone, that's unlawful. You could make a case that a phone furnished by the government is not subject to privacy and that someone using such a phone has no reasonable expectation of privacy. It's absurd to assert that Congress can just subpoena anyone's private phone records without a lawful purpose and include them in Congressional reports and furnish them to the public with a bunch of unfounded allegations.
Trump seems quite happy and self-assured these days. Pelosi looks like she's nauseous.
Sorry, Brietbart is a crap source that used, and amplifies, Russian propaganda. They used unnamed sources that "appeared" to be false. Breitbart 'appears' to be full of it! And when Fox asked him if he met with Shokin in Vienna, he didn't deny it, he weaseled.
Nunes is in trouble, and knows it. He's got a half dozen lawsuits going trying to suppress his bad press.
Because Barr is only pretending to be an AG, that leaves Congress doing the work he was supposed to do, and didn't...
So what you are saying is the Congress can't investigate. I suggest you look at the Constitution. Or legal precedents, or common sense, or... What y'all have there, podner, is one of them there "unfounded allegations".
The hundreds of frantic middle of the night tweets from Trump suggests he is quaking in his boots.
One last thing, Nunes' stupid antics go back over a year. There is plenty there to build a case for censure, perhaps even expulsion.
