Intel Dem: Nunes 'sacrificed the good name' of committee with Trump briefing

The Hill by Brooke Seipel -- 

California Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, knocked the committee's chairman Devin Nunes Thursday, saying that his surprise decision to brief President Trump on alleged incidental surveillance damaged the "good name" ? of the committee.

Nunes on Wednesday said that he had seen reports that suggest that agencies had collected intel on members of Trump's transition team through routine surveillance of foreign targets.
Since making the statement, Nunes has yet to share the evidence with fellow committee members or reveal his sources.

Nunes has also come under fire, despite apologizing, for his decision to go to the White House and brief the president on what he had seen without discussing it with the committee beforehand.
