BREAKING: Nunes Drops NEW Obama Surveillance BOMB- It’s WAY Worst Than We Thought

A key lawmaker, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif. who went public this week with charges the Obama administration collected and spread information from surveillance of President Trump’s transition team has revealed that the documents he’s been shown “concerned me.”

“There’s some information in those documents that concerned me and I don’t think belonged in there,” Nunes told reporters at a press conference.

While reasserting that it appears that the information was perhaps collected legally, he expressed concern about the decision to unmask names.

By law, Americans caught incidentally during surveillance of foreign targets must be protected by having their names “masked.” Nunes said more than one American – and possibly Trump – had their names “unmasked” and their names and information were widely distributed within the intelligence community, Fox News report.

“It appears like this was all legal surveillance from what I can tell,” he said, but later added: “You have to ask why were names unmasked.

“Maybe someone has a good reason for it but not from what I’ve been able to read,” he said.

Nunes said NSA Director Mike Rogers has been “highly cooperative” with his committee and could turn over documents, possibly transcripts of surveilled conversations, Friday or sometime next week.

Nunes did not say how many names were unmasked.

“There was additional unmasking that was done in the documents I read the other day. I don’t know who asked for them to be unmasked, i just know there are more,” he said, although he said he knew about the unmasking before he read the documents.


Nunes dropped a midweek bombshell when he told reporters Wednesday that he had seen information showing that communications by Trump transition officials had been picked up via “incidental collection” – meaning they had been picked up as security agencies had been monitoring other targets.

Nunes said while the information had been obtained legally, he added that it showed that communications were then widely disseminated in an improper manner during the last days of the administration.
