As reported earlier today, House Intel Chairman Devin Nunes confirmed that Trump had been surveilled during the Obama administration:
“I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the president-elect and his team were, I guess, at least monitored,” Nunes told reporters.
To add some more color to what Nunes said,
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.
This information was legally brought to me by sources who thought that we should know it. There were no references whatsoever in everything I read, and it was dozens of reports, and there was no mention of Russia.
Reporter: Was this surveillance for a criminal investigation?
Nunes: Nope, it has nothing to do with any criminal investigation. It was normal foreign surveillance.
When did surveillance take place?
What I’ve seen was post-election
A few other pertinent bullet points from Nunes’ press conference courtesy of ZeroHedge:
- *NUNES: BRIEFED PRESIDENT ON CONCERNS OVER INCIDENTAL COLLECTION
- *NUNES: `PRESIDENT NEEDS TO KNOW’ THESE INTEL REPORTS EXIST
- *NUNES: SOME OF WHAT I’VE SEEN SEEMS TO BE `INAPPROPRIATE’
- *NUNES: TRUMP, OTHERS IN TRANSITION PUT INTO INTELLIGENCE REPORT
- *NUNES: QUESTION IS IF TRUMP SHOULD BE IN THESE `NORMAL’ REPORTS
And the stunner:
Wow – Nunes just said there are "multiple FISA warrants out there" involving Trump.
