4D Chess Alert: Rep. Nunes Confirms Trump Transition Team Was Under ‘Incidental’ Surveillance

Chairman of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Devin Nunes, disclosed in a press briefing today that intelligence documents confirm that Trump and his team were victims to ‘incidental’ surveillance, both before and after the elections.

s h i l l s
Rep. Nunes, said he was  ‘alarmed’ by these new facts and would discuss them with his colleague, Rep. Schiff. What of extreme interest to note is the fact that the intelligence, according to Nunes, was of the foreign varietal — which then later made its way into American intelligence briefings. Several weeks ago, White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, suggested that British Intelligence (GCHQ) had been asked by President Obama to spy on Trump, as a way around American surveillance laws.

Sean Spicer said his source for the GCHQ claim was none other than Judge Napolitano, who was recently suspended by Fox was pushing the narrative.

Judge Nap’s source was former intelligence official, Larry Johnson, who said in an interview on CNN: “when Donald Trump tweeted what he did on Saturday two weeks ago, the next day I was interviewed on Russia Today. Now I had known about the fact that the British, through GCHQ, were passing information through back channels. This was not being done at the direction of Barack Obama, let’s be clear about that. But it was being done with the full knowledge of people like [former CIA director] John Brennan and [former Director of National Intelligence] Jim Clapper. And I had been told this by two different people I know within the intelligence community in January. They were very concerned about this because they saw it as an unfair meddling into politics. But it was a way to get around the issue of American intelligence agencies not collecting.”

Nunes during presser:

“I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the president-elect and his team were, I guess, at least monitored,” Nunes told reporters.

“It looks to me like it was all legally collected, but it was essentially a lot of information on the president-elect and his transition team and what they were doing.”

“I want to be clear, none of this surveillance was related to Russia or the investigation of Russian activities or of the Trump team,”

Reporter: ‘Do you think right now the NSA was spying on Trump during transition?”

Nunes: (audible laughter) “I guess that all depends on one’s definition of spying…”

I guess the only question to ask now is, will they apologize to Trump and lift Judge Nap’s suspension?

    Wow, I thought Trump wrong, but this revelation is just stunning. I guess there’s people in government who have absolutely no respect for our constitution, privacy and will go to any length to destroy or disrupt our democracy for their own gain. And I’m not talking about the Russians. Sad!

    Explains why Clapper and Hillary attack dog Morell came out in advance and softened their attack on Trump – – by saying no evidence of collusion between Trump camp and Putin.

    Order didn’t come from Obama? Everyone with a brain knows Obama passed a note under the table to have it done.

    Is there anything new here? It has long been known that guys like Flynn were picked up on surveillance of foreign actors.

    This means Trump and/or someone in his team were in contact with targets of Foreign Intelligence and were picked up as part of said target’s surveillance. That is different from spying or wiretapping. If anything, this should set Team Trump on a chase for lawyers who are good at cutting deals.

      Huh? Surveillance is wiretapping. This parsing of words is ponderous and juvenile, already. Also, one talking to a target is proof of nothing. Even our allies are under our surveillance.

      If anything, it means you jump through all kinds of crazy hoops to defend your once comfy establishment people who are the ones squirming and will be joining you in the unemployment line. Jk, they are still set for life.

    So Nunes got info, ran to WH, and then told press before speaking to Shiff or the committee. Sounds legit.

      Apparently he doesn’t trust his fellow congressmen with it. Especially when they so willfully pursue Russian narrative with zero evidence.

      You know, because politicians are so trust worthy right? And I’m sure Schiff would have been just as excited to go tell everyone. ” now hold on there Nunes, let’s think about this for a minute. “

      He found out the DNC was trying to set up Trump, so went public with it. After all, he’s RNC. What did you expect to happen?

    “This is a normal, incidental collection, based on what I could collect,” Nunes said. “This appears to be all legally collected foreign intelligence under” the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

          Is it beyond comprehension that some people are excited to do the right thing. I mean, they are just people, with similar motivations as you and I. He was tasked with arguably one of the most important investigations in US history. I’d be excited as Fuck.

    great new look on the header!

    however, the design is still really slow. youve got way too many dynamic widget on the page, it gives a lot of work to do to the server everytime someone loads a page.

    I dont know if you have a programmer or if you use wordpress template by yourself, but your twitter feed should be loaded on a specific page as an example, it would reduce the load on the server by a lot… or you could start by trying to stop the embedded content to appear in the feed, keep it text only im sure the option exists.

    on the recent, popular and comment feed, try to remove or reformat one of those too.

    thanks for everything

    Come on Fly the FBI going through your house and collecting a copy of all of your documents and hard drive info is not the same thing as executing a search. Its just a copy, not the same thing as collecting evidence right? Or in this case surveillance. You trust the CIA and NSA, they would never have a leak of information that they have on you.

    I find it funny that people are in here apologizing for calling Trump a liar. I appreciate the fact that the people in the ibankcoin forums have enough decorum to eat crow. But it’s best that they realized that Donald J Trump is not a politician he the truth but more than he lies. I know they are used to every word coming out of the government being an utter falsehood, but this is not that kind of administration
