EXCLUSIVE – Fox News obtained a redacted copy of a notice AT&T sent to a private citizen customer after the company received a subpoena from the House Jan. 6 Committee for that individual's phone records.

"The AT&T Global Legal Demand Center responds to subpoenas addressed to AT&T companies," the document, which includes a copy of the subpoena, says. "We have received the enclosed congressional subpoena directing AT&T to disclose information about you, your account or one or more phone numbers associated with you."

"As a courtesy, we are sending this notice to your address on file to enable you to contest the subpoena if you wish to do so," the notice continues. It adds that the company will respond to the subpoena by Dec. 16 unless the customer takes legal action to fight the subpoena.

How Boeing Was Set on the Path to Disaster by the Cult of Jack Welch

  How Boeing Was Set on the Path to Disaster by the Cult of Jack Welch On April 20 this year, a group of the largest stakeholders in Boeing took part in a virtual version of the company’s annual general meeting. A few hours before the meeting opened online, they learned something that took them by surprise: The retirement age for the top job, CEO of the aerospace colossus, was suddenly being raised from 65 to 70. This meant that the current CEO, Dave Calhoun, who was 64, could enjoy at least another five years in the job. A move like that would normally indicate that the stakeholders were so pleased with the way a company was being run that they thought the best way of keeping it that way was to leave the boss in place rather than replace him.

Personal details about the recipient of the subject, including the phone number being subpoenaed, are redacted from the document obtained by Fox News. The subpoena is a broad request for electronic records associated with a specific phone number.

This includes all the authorized users on a certain account, email addresses associated with it, the length of service with the company, every phone number on an account, electronic serial numbers, the "[a]ctivation and termination date of each device associated with the account," "[a]ny and all number and/or account number changes" and "[o]ther subscriber numbers or identities," including temporary IP addresses.


Trump ex-chief of staff cooperating with Congress probe: chairman

  Trump ex-chief of staff cooperating with Congress probe: chairman Mark Meadows, Donald Trump's former chief of staff, is cooperating with the congressional committee investigating the January 6 assault on the US Capitol by supporters of the former president, the committee chairman said Tuesday. Meadows was serving as Trump's chief of staff when backers of the former president stormed the US Capitol in an attempt to halt the certification of Democrat Joe Biden's presidential election victory. Meadows had initially snubbed a subpoena to testify before the House of Representatives committee investigating the assault on the Capitol, setting up possible contempt charges.

Most notably, the subpoena includes a demand for "all call, message, (SMS & MMS), Internet Protocol ('IP'), and data-connection detail records associated with the phone numbers, including all phone numbers, IP addresses or devices that communicated with the phone number via delivered and undelivered inbound, outbound, and routed calls, messages, voicemails and data connections."

A GOP source told Fox News this week that subpoenas were sent not just to AT&T but also to T-Mobile and Verizon. None of those companies directly replied to requests for comment. But the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) reached out to Fox News with a statement.

"While CTIA is not privy to the specifics of any request, wireless carriers are compelled to comply with valid subpoenas and do so every day," the CTIA said.

The subpoena is signed by Jan. 6 Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss. The committee did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News. Neither did a spokesperson for Ranking Member Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

Sidney Powell fundraising groups under subpoena by federal prosecutors: report

  Sidney Powell fundraising groups under subpoena by federal prosecutors: report Federal prosecutors have issued a subpoena demanding the financial records of several fundraising organizations founded by attorney Sidney Powell in the wake of the 2020 presidential election. The grand jury subpoena was issued by the U.S. attorney's office for the District of Columbia in September and demanded communications and other documents regarding the fundraising of several groups, including Defending the Republic, according to The Washington Post.

The subpoenas follow preservation orders the committee issued to telecom companies in August for a swath of data pertaining to many individuals. It isn't clear exactly whose records are being subpoenaed by the committee now, but a GOP aide also knowledgeable about the subpoenas said the committee hasn't issued any for phone records of members of Congress yet.


"The committee has moved forward with issuing subpoenas to telephone companies," the GOP aide said Wednesday. "Our understanding at this point is they have not subpoenaed member information, but they are subpoenaing telephone records of private American citizens."

Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., was selected to sit on the Jan. 6 Committee by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarty, R-Calif., before Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., blocked him and multiple other GOP picks for the committee.

"The fact they’re doing this in secret … is what makes this an unprecedented event in congressional history — that a rogue committee would go out and subpoena private citizens' phone records," Banks, R-Ind., told Fox News.

Fort Worth School Board Racial Equity Committee co-chair owns up to attacks on parents

  Fort Worth School Board Racial Equity Committee co-chair owns up to attacks on parents A member of the Fort Worth, Texas, school board's Racial Equity Committee has defended her actions releasing the personal information of parents online and leaving a profanity-laced voicemail attacking a mother who sued the school district over a COVID-19 mask mandate. The committee also held a news conference standing by the woman, while the targeted parents called for her removal. "Some people consider my actions doxxing," Norma Garcia-Lopez, the committee's co-chair, said in a statement to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "It’s not doxxing when you expose someone who filed a public motion in a public court of law that impacts public school children.

"I'm not gonna get too far ahead of what we're releasing. But we're gonna get – we'll be thorough, we'll get to the bottom," Jan. 6 Committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., told Fox News when asked about subpoenas for private citizens' phone records Wednesday.

"I won't say anything on that yet," he added when pressed again.

Cheney simply said "no comment" when asked about such subpoenas.

The Jan. 6 Committee is tasked with investigating the attack on the Capitol by a mob of supporters of former President Trump earlier this year. The attack happened after Trump falsely claimed he won the presidential election for months.

Democrats say the committee is crucial to ensuring there is never a repeat of Jan. 6. Most Republicans say it is a highly partisan exercise meant to hurt Republicans and the former president.

"This is an entirely partisan witch hunt. It's not at all interested in the facts surrounding what happened with the breakdown of security at the Capitol to prevent something like that from ever happening again," Banks said Thursday.

Capitol riot panel votes to hold Trump aide in contempt .
Lawmakers investigating the assault on the US Capitol voted unanimously Monday to pursue criminal contempt charges against Donald Trump's former chief of staff for refusing to testify. The committee will green-light the contempt citation Monday evening and the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives is expected to vote Tuesday to refer Meadows to the Justice Department. A timetable for a charging decision has yet to be revealed. If convicted, Meadows could face a six-month prison term for each contempt charge, but more likely would be fined.
