On Thursday, Laura Ingraham brought on guest Fred Fleitz, a former CIA, analyst to talk about a troubling piece of the recently unveiled House Intelligence Committee report released to the House Judiciary committee.
Adam Schiff arbitrarily releases my phone records as a 1st Amendment protected reporter. State Department bureaucrats reportedly monitored my social media. A witness gratuitously drags a 13-year-old boy into impeachment. Whatever happened to civil liberties, privacy and decency?

“Well my sources tonight told me that what Schiff did and his committee was he went to one of the cell phone companies, ATT, yes… They had some numbers. They didn’t know whose numbers they were. They asked them tell us what these numbers have been engaged in. What calls these numbers have been making and placing. They took that information. They went to the NSA. The NSA aka “Deep State” then gave them the information that it was Rudy and others… That is from extremely reliable sources,” said Ingraham on the show.
Fred Fleitz further mentioned that ATT willingly turned over the phone records to Schiff and the House Intelligence panel. Ingraham said sources told her that ATT gave the call logs over to investigators, who then consulted the NSA on who the numbers belonged to.
The United States Foreign Intelligence Court (FISC, also called the FISA Court) is a U.S. federal court that was established and authorized under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978. The court was established to provide warrants for foreign spies inside the United States. Requests are made most often by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
FISA Court Jude Rosemary Collyer wrote a 99-page document allegedly showing the utter disregard for the law that was shown in allowing access to the NSA database.
On page 82, Collyer alleged that 85 percent of database searches were unlawfully carried out by FBI contractors. It seems like a playground for the intelligence to spy on United States citizens.
