Skip to comments.Schiff’s Snooping Standard: He says he can gather and release private metadata because only ‘the far right’ objects.

Kudos to Margaret Brennan of CBS for asking Adam Schiff on Sunday about his release of phone logs of his political opponents. Mr. Schiff dismissed any criticism, and his reason is revealing about the balance of power in Washington.
The blowback has only come from the far right, Mr. Schiff said. But look, every investigator seeks phone records to corroborate, sometimes to contradict, a witnesss testimony.
Yes, but executive-branch investigators who want to get data from private telecom companies typically must obtain some kind of judicial order. Mr. Schiff did it himself. Prosecutors are also supposed to limit the release of data on innocent bystanders like journalists for privacy reasons. The intelligence term of art is minimization. Mr. Schiff released the phone logs of journalist John Solomon and Rep. Devin Nunes information irrelevant to his impeachment case against President Trump. The narrative of his report suggests he did it gratuitously to imply that Mr. Nunes is part of the Ukraine conspiracy, though the Republican has a right to call anyone he wants.

we’re this close to a full on Peoples Republic.
So what hes saying is only the right wing press is doing its job
I like the movie called “Shooter”, with Mark Wahlberg, because of what happens at the end.
Schiff-4-brains has micturated on the Constitution
Will the DOJ arrest him. No.
He is special, and above all others -
even able to take down an ELECTED PRESIDENT
to coverup his murders.
The Commie left LOVES Russia..everything they are doing are Soviet style tactics and the commie media has zero issue with it because it gives them the end result that they want..they dont hate Donald Trump, they hate who donald Trump represents, the PEOPLE..and what commies want more than anything is to CONTROL PEOPLE
Digging his grave deeper and deeper!
Schiff has connections to Ed Buck and Dr Bruce Hensel, his scandals are endless, but NO ONE investigates him
Only jews have a problem with the camps.
So according to Shiff, your rights only extend to what the liberals allow. If a few dozen, hundred, or million people get their rights trampled on, so what?
Someone suggested that possibly the Southern District of New York supplied the data to Schiff. They are anti-Trump, but would they have access to the data?
Schiff is above the law!!
Only the right wing objects, and the gutless republitards aint got the balls to do a damn thing about felonies committed by demonrats. I am fed the hell up with the chickenshit bastards.
Wow. All of my fears are being confirmed about the government. Just a few years ago a person would have been called crazy for suggesting that our politicians would do such a thing.
They think they above the law that they impose on us.
Full on demagogues, the whole lot of them.
Sounds like a good time for President trump to release all the Phone records of Schiff, nadler, pelosi and The FAKE NEWS Press, only the Crazy Left will complain.
“””””Wow. All of my fears are being confirmed about the government.”””””””””””
I believe we all predicted this when the Patriot Act was passed.
