It started with a tweet
from Trump accusing the Obama Administration of wiretapping him during the election. Then, last week, House Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calf.) rushed to the White House because he had seen “concerning intelligence” about Trump and his team that required him to immediately brief the president as a part of his “duty and obligation.”
Nunes, the chair of the House committee investigating the Trump-Russia allegations and a former Trump2016 transition team member, was clear in stating that “none of this surveillance was related to Russia, or the investigation of Russian activities, or of the Trump team” (confused yet?).
This week, we learned that not only did Nunes get his information from sources within the White House (NYT
thinks they know who), but some reporters also starting piecing together the odd series of events that seemed to prove that this was all a way to try and Defend Trump on his previous wiretapping allegations. Something that Nunes all but confirmed in his jumbled defense of the weird series of events while talking with Sean Hannity
I would be concerned if I were the president, and thats why I wanted him to know, and I felt I had a duty and obligation to tell him because as you know he’s been taking a lot of heat in the news media, and I think to some degree there are some things that he should take a look at to see wether the collection was proper or not.
