But now it turns out that President-elect Trump and his transition team WERE surveilled.
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-California) said that he has seen copies of reports “unmasking” the members of Trump’s transition team and their activities. This material was widely-circulated in the White House and in the Intelligence community.
Nunes says he believes the material was gathered legally, although information gleaned “incidentally” in the course of other investigations is supposed to be redacted. Nunes says the information gathered did not involve Russia connections.
