This is about “robocall” politics.

At issue are those pesky automated telephonic sales pitches that always seem to interrupt dinner, Final Jeopardy, a conjugal moment or vespers.

There are actually entire companies set up in India and Pakistan focused solely on robocalling and scamming people...lots of videos on Youtube documenting these foreign crooks and the ingenious anti-scammers who turn the tables on them. But because they are based overseas and tend to use proxy phone numbers, they are out of reach of the U.S. government.
