LOU DOBBS (HOST): I want to get to that issue with you, specifically and personally, because you were a target of the [House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam] Schiff's divulging of these records and, by the way, coming up with those records under what pretext I'm not certain. Perhaps you are. But I also want to point out this is a -- Schiff now has a pattern of conduct, a track record of inaccuracy, outright lies, and it is -- it should, it seems to me, to be taken heavily into account by the American people and others his absolute disregard for truth.
JOHN SOLOMON: Well, listen, he didn't actually subpoena my phone records, I want to be clear about that. He subpoenaed Rudy Giuliani's and Lev Parnas' and then extracted my numbers as the only reporter. Now I know other reporters had conversations with those two men. But I'm the only one who ends up having his records released, and it makes me wonder whether it's political payback, I know my friends feel that way. Because a few months ago I wrote a story exposing the fact that Mr. Schiff, Chairman Schiff, had met with Glenn Simpson at the sidelines of the Aspen Institute at a time when he shouldn't have been having contact with Glenn Simpson. It feels like a political payback. But at the end of the day, if he wanted to know what the calls were about, he should have done some more investigating before he put them out.
DOBBS: But indeed he did divulge them, knowing full well they were your phone records, which, by the way, was within his power and I think responsibility not to release. It is an extraordinary abuse, both of his power and your First Amendment rights.
