Rep. Nunes: 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.
Hewitt: Wait a minute, this is news to me.
Nunes: The Cloak Room in the House of Representatives.
Hewitt: I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Nunes: 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…
Nunes: …members of Congress talk to the press all the time.
Hewitt: I did not know that, and that is a stunner.
Nunes: Now that is a separation of powers issue here, Hugh.
