Subpoena Schiff's phone records? Graham says no desire

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said he does not "have any desire" to subpoena the phone records of Democratic Rep.

Adam Schiff, one of the lawmakers leading the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, often spoke to Representative Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, as Giuliani peddled unproven allegations at the heart of the Trump impeachment inquiry, a congressional report said on Tuesday.

Previously undisclosed telephone records appended to a 300-page report by the Democratic-led committee showed that Nunes also contacted Lev Parnas, a Ukrainian-American businessman who was helping Giuliani and has been indicted on charges of violating campaign finance law.

Parnas has pleaded not guilty.

Others with whom Giuliani had phone calls included current and former Nunes staffers, the White House budget office, and a journalist who promoted conspiracy theories involving Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden and the 2016 U.S. election.

Giuliani's numerous calls with Nunes and aides are significant because, as the top Republican on the committee, the California lawmaker cited those same theories as he led the fight against impeaching Trump.

Asked if he had talked to Parnas, Nunes told Fox News Channel: "It's possible, but I haven't gone through all my phone records.

I don't really recall that name.

I remember that name now because he's been indicted."
