Nunes regrets briefing Trump before Intelligence panel


The Hill by
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said Thursday that he regrets informing President Trump of surveillance impacting the president’s transition team before he updated his panel.

“It’s a judgement call on my part,” he told reporters when asked why he spoke with Trump and the media before House Intelligence Committee Democrats.
“At the end of the day, sometime you make the right decision, sometimes you don’t,” Nunes added, noting he could not show the panel information that was given to him by a source.

Nunes declined to disclose his source’s identity when if it was the White House.
The California lawmaker said Wednesday that the U.S. intelligence community incidentally collected information on members of Trump’s transition team, ultimately putting it into various intelligence reports.
