(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence asked the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to dismiss the lawsuit against them for the controversial impeachment-related subpoenas for phone records, including those of Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer. Schiff and the Committee are being represented by the Office of General Counsel for the House of Representatives.

The phone records led to the publication of the private phone records of Giuliani, Congressman Devin Nunes, journalist John Solomon, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, attorney Victoria Toensing, and other American citizens.

In their 14-page motion Schiff and the Committee claim “sovereign immunity;” “Speech or Debate Clause” privilege; immunity from FOIA and transparency law; that the records are secret; and that Judicial Watch and public do not need to see them.

Judicial Watch filed its lawsuit under the public’s common-law right of public access to examine government records after it received no response to a December 6, 2019, records request (Judicial Watch v. v Adam Schiff and U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (No. 1:19-03790)):

  • All subpoenas issued by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on or about September 30, 2019 to any telecommunications provider including, but not limited to AT&T, Inc., for all records of telephone calls of any individuals
  • All responses received to the above subpoenas.

Schiff is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, currently serving as chairman of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Schiff is being sued in his capacity as Chairman of that committee.

  • Hang the bastard by his SCHIFFT NECK!!!!

  • I agreed that no one is above the law. Congressman Schiff and his collegues need to comply with the subpeana for all records associated with his failed impeachment effort against President Trump.  

  • NO One IS above The Law. What a joke. He should be tarred and feathered for his blatent lies. If it was any lowley citizen you woul;d be doing time. The Government Royals have enacted laws to keep themselves out of judjment. Term Limits are a necessity.

  • Schiff needs to be tried and shot for the Progessives,treasonous attempted Coup. He ain't the only one either..

  • Schiff is the dems little Joseph Goebbels. Hey ADAM.......ALL THE JUNK YOU DID IN CONGRESS BELONGS TO THE PUBLIC..THE PEOPLE , NOT YOUR PERSONAL RECORDS.  Enough of this double standard.......the disgusting left to invade, spy, wire tap everybody, but dont like it done to them.  That miserable Obama had Comey, Brennan and their respective hacks spy on Trump and it's still not prosecuted.........fed up with the two sets of laws. 


  • This is a new twist on the Constitution... members of Congress are not normally afforded general immunity from the Public's OVERSIGHT of its representatives... unless it involves national security and then only classified items should qualify for such privilege.  I suspect criminal conduct and conspiracy can be proven if the records requested are forthcoming.
