House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has provided a little background information explaining how the events unfolded in his becoming aware of information that he later shared with President Trump last week. While he isn’t specific, a general flavor of the nature of the information and the means by which it was provided to him is offered.
Last Tuesday evening, the day prior to his announcement to the nation that he had corroborating evidence that President Trump had been spied upon by the Obama regime, Rep Nunes met with an anonymous source on the White House grounds to review dozens of documents and intelligence reports. Those included accounts of meetings involving President Trump’s advisers.
Nunes chose the White House for the meeting as it was the most convenient secure location equipped with a computer which was connected to the system upon which the reports were housed, which are only distributed within the executive branch. Nunes reportedly said of the need to relocate, “We don’t have networked access to these kinds of reports in Congress.” He further stated that his source was not a White House staff person and was an intelligence official.
Nunes told Bloomberg’s Eli Lake that the distribution of the reports he viewed had included the Obama White House, among other executive branch agencies. He said, “The reports included details about the Trump transition, meetings of Trump and senior advisers, they were distributed throughout the intelligence community and to the White House. In some cases, there was additional unmasking of Trump transition team officials.”
Nunes says the reports he viewed had nothing to do with Russia. He also told Lake that he expects Intelligence Committee members, including “Shifty” Adam Schiff and other Democrats, to be able to view the documents for themselves in secure locations outside of Congress soon, possibly during the upcoming week.
It is unlikely that Rep Nunes would make such claims, pointing to specific supporting intelligence, with a promise to provide that intelligence for review by his fellow committee members, without there being substance that for the most part supports the claims as he states them to be. To do so would only invite ridicule and damage his credibility. It’s a safe assumption that whatever he has seen is significant and it involves a deliberate, orchestrated effort by the Obama regime or players under their direction, to damage President Trump.
The details may be slow in coming but the general content will come out. Obama might want to extend that Tahiti vacation, or his pilgrimage to Pakistan, Saudi Arabia or wherever he really is, a little bit longer before he returns to US soil. He’s got Alinskyite surrogates to do his dirty work for him here in the short term. He doesn’t want to risk ending up sharing a residence with his fellow anti-American jihadis in Gitmo.
