Lawmakers Say Classified Docs Don't Support Nunes's Surveillance Claims
A bipartisan group of lawmakers and aides have viewed classified reports that House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes said showed evidence that some Trump associates were caught up in federal surveillance activities during the 2016 election.
Rice's behavior was called "normal and appropriate" for her position, one anonymous congressional source told the news network.
Republican lawmakers made their first official inquiry into opening an investigation of reports the Obama administration's national security adviser and others "unmasked" several Trump campaign officials swept up in US surveillance operations against foreign targets during last year's presidential election campaign.
Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump's initial national security adviser, is one known example of a Trump campaign official whose name was unmasked from an intelligence report and leaked to the press. He reports that there are still congressional members who are concerned about the justification Rice had for the unmasking she requested. As a result of these official, closed-door inquiries, sources from both parties told CNN they "have so far found no evidence that Obama administration officials did anything unusual or illegal".
Still, some members of Congress continue to have concerns about the justification given for the unmasking requests and the standards for the intelligence community to grant such requests, which reveal the private data of USA persons mentioned in intelligence reports based on routine intelligence collection aimed at foreign nationals. He also plans to review whether Obama's National Security Council and White House counsel collected and distributed the intelligence for reasons unrelated to foreign intelligence.
"Perhaps I didn't know how right I was", Trump said, "Because nobody knew the extent of it".

Asked directly if the tweet referred to Rice's actions, Trump said, 'Well, sure, we're talking about surveillance'. When you look at Susan Rice and what's going on, and so many people are coming up to me and apologizing now, they say "You know, you were right when you said that". "If I read it and I think, in order for me to really understand is this significant or not so significant, I need to understand who the "U.S. person" is", Rice said.
The fecal matter hit the ventilation system in late March when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes publicly revealed certain aspects of the bipartisan group's investigation.
Nunes, who was leading the House investigation, temporarily recused himself from the Russian Federation probe last week after the House Ethics Committee opened its own investigation into whether Nunes revealed classified information when he spoke with the press.
Nunes came under fire last month after he announced he had seen intelligence showing that that Trump transition officials were swept up in routine US intelligence and were unmasked in reports.
