(TNS) A House Republican sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Wednesday asking him to subpoena the phone records of several individuals related to the impeachment inquiry report released by House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff earlier this week.

In his letter, Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) wrote, “”On Page 153 of the Trump-Ukraine Impeachment Inquiry Report produced by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, we learned that Chairman Adam Schiff obtained personal phone records chronicling conversations between President Trump’s personal lawyer, White House officials, a journalist and the top Republican on the Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes.”
He referenced this citation:
49 AT&T Document Production, Bates ATTHPSCI _20190930_00768, ATTHPSCI _20190930_00772, ATTHPSCI _20190930_00775
That leads to this paragraph:
The Committees uncovered evidence of close ties and frequent contacts between Mr. Solomon and Mr. Parnas, who was assisting Mr. Giuliani in connection with his representation of the President. Phone records show that in the 48 hours before publication of The Hill opinion piece, Mr. Parnas spoke with Mr. Solomon at least six times.

Because that hack Schiff subpoenaed AT&T phone records, Banks told Graham he believes that the Judiciary chairman ought to get Schiff’s records, as well as those of former Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and Mark Zaid, the lawyer for the Ukrainian whistleblower.
“The public has a right to know with whom Rep. Adam Schiff has coordinated his impeachment effort and if America’s national security is at risk in any way as a result of Rep. Schiff’s actions,” Banks noted in his letter.
Continuing, Banks noted, “Mr. Chairman, we already know our national security is threatened by pursuing impeachment. In their efforts to build a case against President Trump, House Democrats forgot to pass a budget.”
He goes onto explain how Democrats have refused to pass a defense budget, which has led to new “continuing resolutions” that freeze funding at last year’s levels, leaving key Pentagon programs unfunded.
“This quixotic impeachment inquiry must be shelved,” Banks wrote, “and Rep. Adam Schiff must be held to the same standard to which he holds others.
“It is time to see his phone records.”
