There's Evidence of Collusion Between Nunes, White House

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes R-Calif. is pursued by reporters as he arrives for a weekly meeting of the Republican Conference with House Speaker Paul Ryan and the GOP leadership Tuesday

The White House has invited the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee to view materials related to incidental collection, he told reporters Thursday afternoon.

Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday, Schiff said he was "more than willing" to come to the White House to view the new materials.

Nunes, rather than focusing on the impact Russian Federation had on the 2016 election, and rather than focusing on preventing further foreign intervention, made a decision to go on a witch-hunt against USA intelligence agencies for what he claimed was wrongful "unmasking" of individuals associated with the Trump campaign, transition team, or administration, including probably President Donald Trump.

Citing unnamed USA officials, the Times identified the White House officials as "Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence at the National Security Council, and Michael Ellis, a lawyer who works on national security issues at the White House Counsel's Office".

If, in fact, it was info White House staffers found in the ordinary course of their work, why all the "cloak and dagger stuff" with Nunes, instead of taking the information straight to Trump, Schiff questioned.

Nunes insists he's done nothing wrong, and he indicates he'll continue to chair House Intelligence Committee and continue the investigation into Russian efforts to influence the presidential election. But it invited a bipartisan group from the panel to view information it says relates to surveillance of President Donald Trump's associates. White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who hasn't detailed Nunes' visit to the White House last week, cited Nunes' comments to Bloomberg on Monday.

Mr. Cohen-Watnick is a former Defense Intelligence Agency official who was originally brought to the White House by Michael T. Flynn, the former national security adviser.

He added that his "smell test" remark was based on Nunes's words at the time. The intelligence showed, he said, that Trump was "monitored".

There, he meets with an unnamed source who gives him info that says, during the election, Trump and his aides were caught up in surveillance by the intelligence community.

However, Chairman Devin Nunes, a California Republican, cancelled the hearing March 24 without giving any explanation, saying that he first wanted to hear from Comey and the director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Michael Rogers, in a closed-door setting where they could answer questions they had declined to discuss in public.

A Senate intelligence committee source said members view Nunes' claims as a "sideshow" and feel no urgency to run to the White House to view the documents.
