About Rep. Devin Nunes' visit to the White House grounds
Last week the Daily Beast reported, citing anonymous sources, that Nunes "jumped out out of an Uber" on Tuesday evening after receiving a message on his phone, and didn't tell his staffers where he went.
A Democrat on the panel said Monday that the disclosure that Nunes viewed the new documents on White House grounds - with no other panel members present - means that the existing inquiries aren't sufficient.
Nunes told reporters on Wednesday that he had briefed Trump "on the concerns I had about incidental collection and how it relates to President-elect Trump and his transition team and the concerns that I have".
Nunes said he was there for additional meetings "to confirm what I already knew", but said he wouldn't comment further so as not to "compromise sources and methods".
What this means, the congressman writes, is that the House now lacks credibility to conduct a proper investigation into Trump and Russian Federation. He added that his source was not a White House staffer and was an intelligence official.
Democrats, including the panel's ranking member, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., have asserted that Nunes sought to provide political cover to the president, who falsely claimed that the Obama administration wiretapped his NY offices in advance of the 2016 election.
Nunes went to the building because he needed a secure area to view the information, he told CNN.
But Rep. Eric Swalwell, a California Democrat who also sits on the Intelligence Committee, accused the White House Monday of "obstructing" the panel's investigation and called for an independent commission to review the matter. "I'm not - it just doesn't - so I don't know why he would brief the speaker and then come down here to brief us on something that we would have briefed him on". That was the night before Mr. Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, made the explosive allegation that he had viewed dozens of intelligence reports, obtained through government eavesdropping, that inappropriately included details about the Trump transition team.
Mr Nunes has been concerned that Trump associates were captured in "incidental" United States surveillance of foreign targets even before Mr Trump made his baseless claims that former president Barack Obama had wiretapped him past year. Obama and numerous former and current government officials, including Nunes himself, have since debunked Trump's claim. "The chairman is extremely concerned by the possible improper unmasking of names of US citizens, and he began looking into this issue even before President Trump tweeted his assertion that Trump Tower had been wiretapped". Nunes and other officials, including FBI Director James Comey, have said there is no evidence the administration did so, but Trump said he felt "somewhat" vindicated by the briefing Nunes gave him.
"When you have an administration obfuscating and lying about any connections and communications with Russia, Congress has no choice but to put partisanship aside and focus on discovering the truth and earning back the public trust", said Senator Wiener.
