Legal expert Alan Dershowitz says DOJ use of subpoenas to target House Intelligence Committee staff phone and email records is likely unconstitutional.

The former House Intelligence Committee chairman is suggesting the Justice Department illegally spied on him and possibly sought blackmail material after a bombshell revelation that federal prosecutors used grand jury subpoenas five years ago to get the phone and email records of his top investigators during the congressional probe that unraveled the now-disproven Russia collusion narrative.

“This is, I believe, unprecedented spying in modern political history at this point, and just sad that it’s taken us almost six years to discover it,” retired Rep. Devin Nunes said Monday night after Just the News reported that DOJ demanded Google turn over personal email and phone data from at least two senior Intelligence Committee lawyers working for Nunes.

The subpoenas were served on Nov. 20, 2017 during a critical time frame in the committee’s effort to expose the Donald Trump-Russia collusion investigation as having been driven by an uncorroborated political opposition dossier funded by Hillary Clinton. Nunes’ committee was locked at the time in a bitter struggle to force the FBI and DOJ to turn over records to the committee.

“I think they probably were spying on quite a few of my staff,” Nunes told the “Just the News, No Noise” television show. “The only reason they would possibly be doing that is because we caught the DOJ and the FBI coordinating with the Democratic Party in 2016 … in order to spy on the Trump campaign and the Republican Party …

“Lo and behold, at about the same time as as we are investigating them for illegal spying, they go to a grand jury to get what I would call an illegal warrant or subpoena just to target me when I was part of the legislative branch at the time — remember, I’m chairman of the Intelligence Committee at the time.
