With impeachment enthusiasm waning, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) released his committee’s 300-page impeachment report Tuesday, formalizing his committee’s findings in order that the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump may proceed.

Perhaps the biggest revelation stemming from the report is that Schiff obtained the phone records and text message logs of Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney.

In addition, he also collected phone records and text messages of journalist John Solomon and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee.

According to NBC News, the phone records fuel speculation that Giuliani in particular acted nefariously to advance the president’s personal interests.

Who in the White House budget office called Rudy Giuliani on an August afternoon, and what did they have to talk about for 13 minutes?

It’s unclear what legitimate purpose the president’s personal lawyer would have to speak at length with the White House Office of Management and Budget. But the revelation is likely to fuel arguments from House Democrats that Giuliani was intimately involved in a scheme to use U.S. taxpayer dollars as leverage to advance Trump’s personal political interests.

There is little doubt the phone records were included in the report to advance theories that Trump’s staunchest defenders have conspired to protect him and further his interests.

But what the report does not spell out, and what NBC noted, is how — and why — Schiff obtained the records.

At the very least, it is odd for a House committee to subpoena the phone records of its ranking member, a journalist, and the president’s personal attorney — let alone in the midst of a presidential impeachment inquiry.

    It would be interesting to see Schiff, Pelosi and Biden’s phone records for the last few months. With all of the corruption in Ukraine seeming to lead back to American politicians, I think Trump had every right to ask for it to be investigated in Ukraine then and right now. Seems to me like a good deal of our foreign aid comes back to American politicians .
