Phone records indicate that Rep. Devin Nunes was in direct contact with the author of articles promoting a conspiracy theory about Ukraine and the 2016 election (John Solomon), Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and Lev Parnas who has since been indicted for illegally funneling foreign money to Republican candidates:
"Over the course of the four days following the April 7 article, phone records show contacts between Mr. Giuliani, Mr. Parnas, Representative Devin Nunes, and Mr. Solomon. Specifically, Mr. Giuliani and Mr. Parnas were in contact with one another, as well as with Mr. Solomon. Phone records also show contacts on April 10 between Mr. Giuliani and Rep. Nunes, consisting of three short calls in rapid succession, followed by a text message, and ending with a nearly three minute call. Later that same day, Mr. Parnas and Mr. Solomon had a four minute, 39 second call."

The April 7 article referred to was written by Solomon and promotes the conspiracy theory that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered with the 2016 election; a claim debunked by the current administration's own intelligence community.
The article included an interview with Ukrainian prosecutor Kostiantyn H. Kulyk, who's comments suggested Ukrainian involvement. The article fails to mention that Kulyk himself has been: indicted three times for corruption in Ukraine; accused of politically motivated prosecutions, and admitted connections with a possible Russian intelligence service asset:
"[Kulyk] has been indicted three times on corruption charges and accused of bringing politically motivated criminal cases against his opponents. In a Ukrainian security clearance form, Mr. Kulyk admitted having ties to a warlord in eastern Ukraine accused of working for the Russian intelligence services".

Incidentally, when Kulyk became department head in the prosecutor general's office, one of the people who objected was US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. She was removed from her post.
This information supports allegation made by Lev Parnas that he worked closely with Giuliani, Nunes (and his aid Derek Harvey), and two lawyers who advised Trump on the Mueller investigation. Parnes also alleges that Nunes met with the former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin in Europe last year, and arranged skype meetings between Nunes and Ukrainian officials to avoid Nunes having to advise the Intelligence Committee Chair of his meetings.

Anyone who actually knows how the FISA warrants are cleared realize they are a compilation of sometimes hundreds of reasons and known evidence before a judge or judges allow the investigators to begin. Nunes--who's already shown he'll assist Trump in throwing mud on the investigation in the...
