White House Quiet on Report Two Trump Officials are Nunes' Sources
White House Quiet on Report Two Trump Officials are Nunes' Sources
01 April, 2017, 01:51
The New York Times reported Thursday that two White House officials played a role in providing Nunes the intelligence he received at the White House last week, a report Spicer would neither confirm nor deny Thursday.
Nunes, who also serves as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is supposed to be conducting an independent investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the presidential election but has since faced criticism from his fellow congressmen for running to Trump with the damning details before consulting with other members of the intelligence committee.
Two current White House officials reportedly gave Nunes intelligence reports showing that USA spy agencies picked up information involving President Donald Trump and his close allies as part of routine foreign surveillance.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Friday characterized Republican Rep. Devin Nunes' behavior as "bizarre" and again called on him to step down as the head of a congressional investigation into some of President Donald Trump's associates and their ties to Russian Federation.
Fox News continued to say that the Intelligence and House sources with direct knowledge of the disclosure of classified names said that Chairman Nunes now knows who is responsible - and that person is not in the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He would not say whether it was the same material Nunes already had seen.
Speaking Thursday on Capitol Hill, Schiff said he was "more than willing" to accept the White House offer to view new information.
On Thursday the New York Times reported that Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence at the National Security Council, and Michael Ellis, an attorney who works on national security at the White House Counsel's office, shared the intelligence files with Nunes.
Earlier this week, Nunes told Lake that secretly visited the White House on the night before his briefing because he and his source needed a secure location to review intelligence files. Would it be wrong to say that Spicer has no clue about these investigations?
The latest revelation does further damage to both Nunes' and White House officials' credibility.
"I don't know why", Spicer said, the House Intelligence Committee chairman would "come down here to brief us on something that we would have briefed him on".
Nunes has been under heavy pressure by Democrats to recuse himself as the head of the House's investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. "If this report true, it reinforces why Chairman Nunes should be nowhere near this investigation", Swalwell told BuzzFeed News.
"I've been around for quite a while and I've never heard of any such thing", Mr. McCain said on CBS.
It is unclear how Cohen-Watnick came across the documents and whether he found them on his own or whether they came from an outside intelligence agency.
