Rep. Nunes Confirms Trump's 'Incidental' Surveillance Communications Were Collected

COMMENTS

Donald Trump just received intel that relieved him from heat about his unfounded wiretapping claims.

House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes said that U.S. spy agencies conducting foreign investigations may have collected information from President Trump and his associates.

Referring to Intelligence reports "incidentally" gathered from surveillance involving U.S. citizens associated with Donald Trump and Foreign individuals, Rep. Nunes was appalled with what he found.

Yet, he didn't disclose how he obtained the reports.

He told reporters, "What I’ve read seems to me to be some level of surveillance activity — perhaps legal, but I don’t know that it’s right. I don’t know that the American people would be comfortable with what I’ve read.”

Instead of sharing the information with Democrats, Nunes personally went to brief Trump on the reports immediately following the news conference.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff criticized Nune's decision of not disclosing the subject of his findings to the rest of the committee as a real setback.

Schiff said that the chairman "casts quite a profound cloud over our ability to do the work. If the chairman is going to continue to go to the White House rather than his own committee, there’s no way we can conduct this investigation."

When asked if the president felt vindicated from Nune's intel, Trump said, "I somewhat do. I must tell you I somewhat do, I very much appreciated the fact that they found what they found."

Now that we know how Trump feels, let's see what Twitter had to say about the incident that is shaking things up even more at the White House.
