Fitton fumes after Adam Schiff gets away with doxing high profile conservatives
By News Editors // Aug 03, 2020

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton is spitting mad after a federal court decision allowing Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) to get away with doxing high-profile conservatives.


(Article by Tyler Durden republished from

Aafter obtaining their phone records through impeachment-related subpoenas, Schiff published the phone numbers of Rudy Giuliani, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), journalist John Solomon, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, attorney Victoria Toensing and others.

As John Solomon wrote at the time of Schiff:

His committee secretly authorized subpoenas to AT&T earlier this year for the phone records of President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and an associate. He then arbitrarily extracted information about certain private calls and made them public.

Many of the calls Mr. Schiff chose to publicize fell into the special-circumstances categories: a fellow member of Congress ( Rep. Devin Nunes, the Intelligence Committee’s ranking Republican), two lawyers (Mr. Giuliani and fellow Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow ) and a journalist (me).

More alarming, the released call records involve figures who have sometimes criticized or clashed with Mr. Schiff. -John Solomon

Judicial watch sued to obtain the subpoenas - which Schiff's Committee claimed "sovereign immunity" and a "Speech or Debate Clause" privilege trumps the Freedom of Information Act.

On Monday, Judge Beryl A. Howell of the US District Court for the District of Columbia, an Obama appointee, sided with Schiff - ruling that the legal watchdog organization "has no right to demand disclosure of the requested subpoenas," and ordered the case "dismissed with prejudice."

In response, Fitton said in a statement:

"Adam Schiff secretly subpoenaed, without court authorization, the phone records of Rudy Giuliani and then published the phone records of innocent Americans, including President Trump’s lawyers, a member of Congress, and a journalist. And now a federal court ruled today that Schiff, or any member of Congress can’t be held accountable for this unprecedented and potentially criminal abuse of power. Every American should be concerned about a ruling that suggests Congress has unlimited power to take and publish their private phone records!"

Judicial Watch may appeal the decision.
