On Tuesday, the House Intelligence Committee released to the press the phone records that show a suspicious amount of communication between Rudy Giuliani, the White House, and Rep. Devin Nunes, who has been doing his best to sabotage the impeachment proceedings from the inside.
According to the phone logs, Giuliani was regularly in contact with the Office of Management and Budget, Devin Nunes, the indicted henchman Lev Parnas, and a former writer over at The Hill, John Solomon.
According to The Hill:
In one instance, on Aug. 8, Giuliani was in regular contact with the White House as other administration officials sought to finalize a meeting in Washington between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Giuliani connected with the White House switchboard for roughly two minutes at about 12:45 p.m. that day, and he exchanged texts with an unspecified White House phone number roughly 20 minutes later. A phone number associated with the Office of Management and Budget connected with Giuliani’s phone at about 3:13 p.m. that day for a call that lasted 13 minutes, according to the records.
The report states that later that same day, someone tried to call Giuliani multiple times in just one minute, and moments later, Giuliani called the White House for a 47 second call. A few minutes after that call, the first caller reached Giuliani, and the two spoke for about four minutes.
Unfortunately, at this time, the names of the people involved in these conversations, as well as what the conversations were about, has not been revealed to the public. However, just the look of it in general seems a bit shady, no?
Neither Giuliani, nor Nunes’ people will respond to media requests for a comment on the matter, which means they are concocting some ridiculous story, or they are waiting for it to hopefully go away.
When Solomon was reached for a comment, he said this:
“Mr. Parnas came recommended by several people and acted professionally whenever I asked for help. He occasionally helped translate or ensure interviews I conducted were accurately translated.”
This is a man who would eventually be indicted for campaign finance fraud among other crimes. This is all relevant because, according to the report, the president “placed his personal political interests above the national interests of the United States, sought to undermine the integrity of the U.S. presidential election process, and endangered U.S. national security.”
This is a major conflict of interest where Nunes is concerned because he is a ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee who actively participates in the impeachment proceedings taking place for Donald J. Trump.
People on Twitter are saying that Nunes should resign from the House Intelligence Committee, or at least stay out of the proceedings since he has now become a part of them.
The Hill continued:
Records showed Nunes and a member of his staff were in contact with Giuliani and Parnas in April and May. On April 12, Nunes and Parnas spoke for more than eight minutes, according to call records.
Parnas has since been indicted on allegations of campaign finance law violations, and Giuliani is reportedly under investigation by federal prosecutors.
Call logs also shed additional light on efforts to discredit former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.
This is just the beginning of Donald Trump’s problems, but it’s quite wonderful that he’s taking Rudy Giuliani and Devin Nunes, among countless others, down with him.

Devin Nunes is well and truly screwed and he should just resign before he’s expelled.https://t.co/3lyspLbJZc

If Devin Nunes had any shame at all, he'd resign from Congress.
He doesn't so he won't. https://t.co/ONtczJq2Uu

If Devin Nunes had an ounce of decency he’d resign but alas… he’s a sociopath.

It's 12:12AM CT, and @DevinNunes sits in the dark of his living room on the couch, reading this tweet and clutching his passport, wondering, "How many more times can I sue my way out of my insecurities, lies, and betrayals?" Resign, Devin.

I think, Kevin McCarthy, Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, and #MattGaetzisatool should all resign or be removed.

If @DevinNunes was a smart man he would resign from congress and get the fuck out of dodge. But he’s not. He’s going to learn a very important lesson on not messing with the constitution.
