Sen. Rand Paul said Monday he's working on changes to congressional rules that allow committee chairmen to subpoena phone call data of members of Congress and journalists after House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff's panel swept up phone records from Rep. Devin Nunes and conservative journalist John Solomon.

"Nobody should get your records," the Kentucky Republican told reporters Monday night, reports Politico. "This is a big deal; this is a huge deal."

Schiff, D-Calif., on Sunday defended including cell phone call records in House Democrats' impeachment report. During an interview on CBS News' "Face the Nation," he claimed the blowback has only come from the "far-right."

He also denied that the committee subpoenaed Nunes' call records or "any journalist's call records," calling the reports "simply false information."

Paul chided journalists for not rebelling against Schiff, saying it would be easy to subpoena sources' call information.

"There hasn't been enough calls from some of you people about protecting your own," Paul said. "Congress has no rules … it's not illegal for Adam Schiff to do this. It's highly immoral or unfair for him to do it. No one else has ever done it to another member or a journalist. I think we need to change the rules."
