House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes spoke to reporters on Wednesday, and he dropped a bomb about the Obama administration surveilling President Trump’s transition team.
Politico is reporting that Nunes said members of the president’s transition team, which may even include Trump himself, were, in fact, under surveillance following the November election. According to Nunes, the surveillance was legal but it wasn’t related to the Democrat pipe dream that Trump was colluding with the Russians to win the election, which begs the question of why it happened to begin with.
Nunes said the surveillance appears to have been legal, incidental collection and that it does not appear to have been related to concerns over collusion with Russia.
Nunes is going to the White House later Wednesday to brief the Trump administration on what he has learned, which he said came from “sources.”
The latest revelation will undoubtedly throw gas on an already raging inferno. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out considering there’s been nothing but denials over the allegations.
