2016 ELECTION/CONFLICT OF INTEREST/INTELLIGENCE/RUSSIA/WIRETAPPING/DEVIN NUNES: “House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes met with an anonymous source on White House grounds last week shortly before announcing publicly that U.S. intelligence agencies intercepted information about President Donald Trump and his staff during the presidential transition.
A spokesman for Mr. Nunes said the California Republican, charged with overseeing the politically sensitive task of investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, used a secure facility on the White House grounds to meet with his source. That was shortly before he announced to the media last week that he had concerns about the way that U.S. intelligence agencies handled information related to Mr. Trump and his staff.
That announcement came weeks after Mr. Trump made unsubstantiated accusations on Twitter that former President Barack Obama had ordered that his successor be wiretapped while living at Trump Tower in New York during the transition.”
