Flynn, Nunes Fallout Grows for Trump White House

Rep. Devin Nunes received intelligence reports concerning President Donald Trump from two White House officials he still refuses to name.

The material, he said, responded to the House Intelligence Committee's request for "documents necessary to determine whether information collected on US persons was mishandled and leaked".

Last week Representative Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, went to the White House to inform President Trump that members of his team had been incidentally surveilled during the last days of the Obama administration.

Schiff also spoke bluntly on the subject of the Russian Federation investigation, saying that the committee was not going to be distracted. and declaring that they would get to the bottom of what Russian Federation did, how it was done, and whether there was any collusion with the Trump campaign.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi echoed Schiff's sentiments, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to urge Nunes to step down from the investigation.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer has denied that Nunes met with White House staffers as well.

Cohen-Watnick is among about a dozen White House officials who would have access to the types of classified information Nunes says he viewed, according to current and former US officials. He was brought into the White House by now-fired National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

The White House danced around a report in the New York Times that two White House officials provided information to Nunes, meant to bolster President Trump's claim that he was wiretapped by former President Obama.

"I look forward to reviewing these materials at the earliest opportunity", Schiff said in a response letter to White House Counsel Donald McGahn. Now there's reporting that suggests that it is within the White House, that they were the sources of this. He disclosed the existence of the intelligence reports on March 22, and in his public comments he has described his sources as whistle-blowers trying to expose wrongdoing at great risk to themselves.

"At some point ... you're going to have to take "no" for an answer", he said, at one point during his answer telling a reporter to quit shaking her head.

Iraqi forces are fighting IS in western Mosul , where some 2,000 IS fighters are launching fierce counterattacks. The visit comes several days after a reported US-led airstrike left over 230 civilians dead in western Mosul .

Nunes also wouldn't confirm the report.

The congressman has refused to identify his sources, saying he needed to protect them so others would feel safe coming to the committee with sensitive information.

Mr. Hayden's assessment on Friday, meanwhile, followed criticism of Mr. Nunes' handling of the situation this week from some high-level Republican lawmakers in the Senate, which is conducting its own Russian Federation probe. "But it doesn't really pass the smell test".

But why were the White House officials reviewing the surveillance in the first place?
