Intelligence Committee Chairman claims Donald Trump’s transition team was under surveillance

March 22, 2017

  Earlier today Devin Nunes made the claim that he had information which shows that Donald Trump’s transition team was indeed under surveillance. If this is true it could vindicate Donald Trump’s accusation from a couple of weeks ago.

  Here is more:

Representative Devin Nunes said Wednesday that the intelligence community collected multiple conversations involving members of Trump’s transition team during legal surveillance of foreign targets after he won election last year. After Nunes went to the White House to brief Trump, the president told reporters “I somewhat do” feel vindicated by the latest development.

Nunes said he was “alarmed” to discover that the identities of Trump aides were revealed in intelligence community documents. “Details with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value were widely disseminated in an intelligence community report,” he said, adding that he didn’t know if Trump’s “own communications were intercepted.”

  Technically these communications were not caught by “wiretapping” but I think in today’s day and age actual wiretaps are not used–this is probably an outdated term, but we know what the President meant.

  Democrats on the Committee are claiming that while Devin Nunes shared this new information with the President he has not shared it with the Committee:

The committee’s top Democrat, Adam Schiff of California, said Nunes’s decision to go to Trump before informing other members of the panel “casts quite a profound cloud” over whether the committee can conduct a proper investigation.

Schiff said Nunes has to decide whether he’s going to lead the Intelligence Committee or “act as a surrogate of the White House. He cannot do both.”

  If this is true I have to admit it is odd for the head of a Congressional investigation to be sharing the information with the President before sharing it with the Committee–is sure does look like a severe breech of protocol. Is it on the level of say, oh I don’t know, a tarmac meeting between the spouse of a target in an investigation and the Attorney General? As far as we know Donald Trump is not the actual target of the investigation where Hillary Clinton was so it is not quite the same.

  However at best it was a very bad decision because it has given the Democrats on the Committee, and the mainstream media, talking points to distract the people from what the information he allegedly has contains. Instead of the story being the possible vindication of the President all we will hear about is how Devin Nunes mishandled this information and that is a shame. Instead of asking why Donald Trump’s transition team was under surveillance which contained “no apparent foreign intelligence value” we are now talking about protocol.

    I’m seeing a lot of stuff on this… what Nunes did was unprecedented… Nunes possibly broke the law… and so on. From what I am understanding at the moment was that the communications of the aides being observed was incidental; they were watching someone else. If that was the case, it does not support the regime’s claim that the Obama administration was wiretapping him illegally. What Nunes did was an unforced error and put the investigation in a bad light.

    Liars will lie about this to the end or until they’re forced to ‘fess up’! Telling the truth is against their religion. I’m glad to see evidence coming out. The ‘sound of mind’ will see it as MO for that admins. the ‘brainwashed’ won’t believe it (because their blind to truth or what it even means or the value it holds), and justify it away.
    “President Trump has been 100% vindicated.
    He was surveilled by the Obama team, and our guess is MORE than once.
    However, in regards to President Trump’s transition team, Bill O’Reilly spoke to Rep. Peter King of the House Intel Committee, who, after reviewing the data, concludes with 99.5% accuracy that the Obama admin did indeed place President Trump under surveillance.”
