There’s been a lot of interest generated by the decision of Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep Devin Nunes, to pursue the path he did with information he was provided about deep state surveillance of American citizens. The Congressman confirms that the Obama regime spied on members of the Trump administration and transition team and revealed their names in violation of masking requirements.
As Nunes pointed out in his news conference, it is important to remember that most of the illegal spying occurred, “from what I’ve seen, in November, December and January, during the transition.” That was after the election and at a time when Trump was the President-elect. He also notes, “I have learned that additional names of Trump transition team members were unmasked” and affirmed that “none of this surveillance was related to Russia or the investigation of Russian activities or [activities] of the Trump team.”
Whatever Rep Nunes learned from his anonymous source was deeply disturbing. He said in his press briefing that he was “actually alarmed” because they “went through this about a year and a half ago as it related to members of Congress. Is it once again happening to members of Congress if they happen to be involved with the Trump camp or part of the Trump transition? Is history repeating itself with US intelligence agencies such as the CIA or the investigators of the FBI again abusing their authority?
Was the shocking information he found out that couldn’t wait to be courteously shared with Democrat Adam Schiff related to Nunes being one of those targeted by Brennan, Clapper and Comey and unmasked for all to see? Were members of his family also on the list? Is that why he needed to speak with President Trump immediately, both to inform him of the situation but also to determine the appropriate actions for Nunes to take as both the chairman and a target?
Nunes stated that he first went to Speaker Ryan to discuss the issue with him and then subsequently made arrangements to talk with President Trump. There is likely more here than just some wiretapping that captured some occasional questionable overstepping of authority. Was Schiff involved in the illegalities and is that something that Nunes has properly chosen not to reveal publicly at this time?
Only after speaking with Speaker Ryan and President Trump, and notifying the press of what was happening did he notify Rep Schiff. There may have been one or two tidbits he forget to mention to the duplicitous Democrat.
