Nunes apologizes for disclosure of Trump team communications-intercept, Democrats say

Lawmaker says U.S. foreign surveillance ‘unmasked’ Trump associates

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) said this morning he fully supports the decision by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) to brief the White House on "incidental" surveillance of President Donald Trump's associates.

Questioning the integrity of a congressional panel's investigation of alleged links between US President Donald Trump's campaign aides and Russian Federation, critics and opponents are demanding a separate probe conducted by a select committee or independent commission.

But he said he invited FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers back to the committee next week to testify before members in a closed session.

But he added that there was no evidence to support Trump's claim that Obama had his "wires tapped" in Trump Tower.

"He'll have to get all the documents he requested from the [intelligence community] about this before he knows for sure, " Nunes' spokesman Jack Langer said.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort - whose ties to Russian Federation have drawn scrutiny - has offered to speak to the House Intelligence Committee, the panel's chair, Rep. Devin Nunes, said Friday.

"Sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make the wrong decision, " he said.

Mr Nunes said he received the new intelligence information after that hearing.

"I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show the president-elect and his team were at least monitored and disseminated out in intelligence", Nunes said.

In the actual episode Kim revealed that she believed she was going to be raped and killed on the night of her Paris robbery. The reality star is said to have got a lot of support from her husband to help her recover from the trauma.

During an open hearing with the committee early this week (20 March) FBI Director James Comey revealed that his agency is investigating whether members of the Trump campaign had contacts with Russian officials during the election.

"House intelligence chairman Devin Nunes told reporters, wow".

Of the investigation into the Trump campaign's connections with Russia, McCain said that in situations like this: "There's always additional information that comes out before it's concluded". But as Nunes himself said on Wednesday, none of the information he has validates Trump's baseless claims that President Obama tapped his phones.

"This information was legally brought to me by sources who thought we should know it", Nunes said.

"Also importantly, why there are so many leaks out there, why are American citizens being unmasked?"

The move drew immediate criticism from the panel's top Democrat, Representative Adam Schiff of California, who accused Nunes in a Twitter posting of an "attempt to choke off public info".

"We welcome his testimony before the committee", he said.

"I think this is a serious mistake", Schiff told reporters.
