Nunes Got Surveillance Claims From White House Officials

Before answering a question, Rep. Adam B. Schiff pauses as if mentally reviewing what he can say.

Schiff was highly critical of Nunes last week after the chairman announced that he had seen classified information detailing surveillance that had been "incidentally" collected on members of President Donald Trump's transition team in November, December and January.

A report out of Fox News explains that the USA intelligence official who "unmasked", or exposed, the names of multiple private citizens affiliated with the Trump team is someone "very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world". Democrats were going insane.

"This is information that was brought to me that I thought the president needed to know about incidental collection", Nunes said. The optics is bad on this. Nunes has resisted, defending his actions. This revelation "is a body blow for Nunes, who presented his findings last week as if they were surprising to the White House", Lake writes.

According to reports, Spicer insisted that, "every single person who's been briefed on this, as I've said ad nauseam from this podium.have been very clear that there is no connection between the President or the staff here and anyone doing anything with Russian Federation".

"We won't back down from protecting New Yorkers from terror - or from an overzealous administration fixated on xenophobia and needless division".

House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes received information about intelligence reports mentioning President Trump from two White House officials, according to a report in The New York Times.

News has not independently confirmed the New York Times or the Washington Post reports.

"I said we would look into it", Spicer said on how Nunes got into the White House grounds.

But Schiff argued it was up to Nunes to restore credibility in the committee's investigation.

His committee is probing ties between the Trump campaign and Russia's influence operation against the 2016 election.

"Do we want to completely break off diplomatic relations?" He got it slightly wrong: It was former President George H.W. Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.

Cohen-Watnick was recruited to the transition team by McMaster's predecessor, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who resigned as national security adviser last month after acknowledging that he had misled administration officials about a phone call he had with the Russian ambassador in December.

But Spicer was careful not to address the Times story directly.

Ellis recently served as a lawyer to the House Intelligence Committee chaired by Nunes. Nunes burned him and is running out of allies on Capitol Hill. The press release announcing his appointment to the White House stated that he is now an intelligence officer in the Navy Reserve.

But this was a show.

Presidents change and lawmakers come and go, but The Times is always here, and FREE online. They are political appointees.

The episode of Nunes's nighttime meeting with the officials has aroused suspicion among Democrats that he colluded with the White House in order to provide backup for Trump's earlier claim that his presidential campaign was wiretapped by the Obama administration.
