Congressman Devin Nunes: the DOJ tapped phones in the House gallery!

US House of RepresentativesFornicalia Congressman Devin Nunes of the 22nd district spoke on the Hugh Hewitt show Wednesday afternoon, and revealed a bombshell: not only did the DOJ tap the phones of reporters, but Nunes indicated the DOJ tapped the telephones of the House of Representatives in the gallery area — where not only reporters use the phones, but various DC politicians.

A portion of the transcript:

HH: The idea that this might be a Geithner-Axelrod plan, and by that, the sort of intimation, Henry II style, will no one rid me of this turbulent priest, will no one rid me of these turbulent Tea Parties, that might have just been a hint, a shift of an eyebrow, a change in the tone of voice. That’s going to take a long time to get to. I don’t trust the Department of Justice on this. Do you, Congressman Nunes?

DN: No, I absolutely do not, especially after this wiretapping incident, essentially, of the House of Representative. I don’t think people are focusing on the right thing when they talk about going after the AP reporters. The big problem that I see is that they actually tapped right where I’m sitting right now, the Cloak Room.

HH: Wait a minute, this is news to me.

DN: The Cloak Room in the House of Representatives.

HH: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

DN: So when they went after the AP reporters, right? Went after all of their phone records, they went after the phone records, including right up here in the House Gallery, right up from where I’m sitting right now. So you have a real separation of powers issue that did this really rise to the level that you would have to get phone records that would, that would most likely include members of Congress, because as you know…

HH: Wow.

DN: …members of Congress talk to the press all the time.

HH: I did not know that, and that is a stunner.

DN: Now that is a separation of powers issue here, Hugh.

Not only were conversations of the reporters tapped, but conversations of DC politicians as well.

Let’s see how this little gem just happens to play out.

  1. If this is true (probably is, based on all the firestorms of the past week, it’s HUGE. It violates the separation of powers in the Constitution.

    Obama is making previous snaky political doers look like pikers. Sheesh.

    The Obama administration is a cesspool! Of course, the diehard Left will continue to defend him — no matter what terrible revelations see the light of day.

  2. Hell of a find BZ! If all this crap happening in the last few weeks, or should I say FINALLY coming to light, We might just see a whole bunch of push for impeachment proceedings. They are after all WAY OVERDUE! Dare I dream of the day, before his term is up, that that bastard in OUR HOUSE will get kicked to the curb? Maybe.
