“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.
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.
