Controversy on Phone Records Intensifies Amid Jan. 6 Probe

Controversy on Phone Records Intensifies Amid Jan. 6 Probe

Come hell or high water wants the phone records of the leaders of the MAGA movement.

Earlier this week, Congress voted to hold former White House Chief of Staff in contempt and sent a criminal referral to the Justice Department. The vote followed Meadows’ decision to stop cooperating with the House select committee investigating the United States Capitol attack.

Meadows had previously complied with the committee. His attorney and the committee said they had understood how the exchange of information would proceed.

However, he and his lawyer found the subpoenas overly broad and a violation of executive privilege. (RELATED: Judge to Hear Trump’s Case Against Jan. 6 Committee)

For Meadows, it was a bridge too far.

Meadows sued the committee and Speaker Pelosi after Congress’ contempt vote.

The American Spectator’s Melissa Mackenzie explains in a special report:

In retaliation, the committee read out texts, and doctored texts, on Monday between Meadows and Fox News hosts and the president’s son. It was lost on Democrats and the media that the text messages actually prove there was no attempted coup from within the Trump administration or his family.

Meadows’ lawsuit is serious but will D.C.’s political judges allow it to be heard on its merits or the politics of post-January 6? 

Nearly one-third of the complaint is dedicated to a subpoena Verizon received that Meadows seeks to quash. It’s going overlooked by nearly all in the media — and that includes conservative media. This part of the complaint has the most profound implications not just for those being deposed by the select committee but for all Americans.

It’s been reported, by CNN (which seems to be a dumping ground for committee members and their staff violating the secrecy laws they’re bound by), that more than 100 others have had their cell phone records seized by this committee. Other telecoms besides Verizon have had records requested from them but Verizon seems to be the only company notifying named subscribers. Are other cell phone providers just turning over this information without notifying their customers?

Mackenzie continues in chilling detail why the Verizon subpoena represents a threat to every American’s civil liberties.
