Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has confirmed that members of the Trump transition team and possibly President Trump himself were caught up in surveillance. Nunes stated it appears to have been "incidental", but some names were "unmasked" in intelligence reports.
This news is coming to us just days after the InfoWars report on the NSA's Project Dragnet which had Trump, Trump family, Trump employees, and numerous addresses included in the mass surveillance from 2004 to 2009. According to Fox News, Trump's transition team was "caught-up" in surveillance coincidentally from November to January.
This revelation throws a large wrench in the small tire of the critics of the President's "wiretapping" claim. Nunes wasted no time personally notifying President Trump at the White House, and according to Politico, President Trump feels "somewhat vindicated".
Here's a video from Fox News on what David Nunes had to say:
A few things to point out here. One, what Nunes read had to be such a bombshell he literally wasted zero time on getting this information straight to the President. Two, it left the top ranking democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, clearly upset with Nunes for not bringing the information to the committee first.
Let's stick with two real quick, why would Schiff be upset with Nunes? It's not that Nunes is a republican, it's because Schiff and others couldn't pressure Nunes on keeping this silent, at least for the time being. Maybe Nunes knew that as well, and wanted to make sure President Trump saw what he saw. Schiff isn't the only one, leftists from Congress to the media are upset.
Alright, number three here is according to Grabien News where the FBI is not cooperating with the House Intelligence Committee, but the NSA is. That seems a bit fishy, does it not?
We more than likely can expect more to come out on this, and with this bombshell it looks as if Trump is going to be the right one on all this. This "incidental" surveillance of the Trump transition team happened on Obama's watch.
Nunes did say the surveillance appears to be legal and it looks to have been approved by a FISA court, but the unmasking of the names of Trump associates, and maybe Trump himself, which is not legal. Nunes was concerned also because the intel reports "ended up in reporting channels and was widely disseminated" according to Fox News.
At the end of the day this is not good for our country and should raise concern over the "deep state", and the efforts of democrats and Trump opponents to take down President Trump. Stay tuned because the tide is turning.
