It may turn out that President Trump is kinda right when he charges his offices were "wiretapped."

BREAKING NEWS: Republican intelligence committee chairman says Obama administration surveillance collected 'incidental' info on Trump's transition team – but isn't prepared to call it 'spying'

  • Devin Nunes stunned Washington by suggesting that President Donald Trump was right – sort of – when he claimed he was 'wiretapped' by Obama
  • Intelligence collected on his transition team was 'incidental,' meaning Trump's insiders weren't targeted
  • But 'dozens of reports' from inside the U.S. Intelligence Community confirm that the Obama administration's surveillance swept up Trump's people in its net
  • Nunes said there were names 'unmasked' by the intel reports, which are supposed to black out names of Americans who are not investigative targets
The U.S. Intelligence Community collected 'incidental' information about President Donald Trump's transition team – and possibly about Trump himself – during the three months following the 2016 election, according to House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes.
Nones told reporters that the information collected was 'legally collected' pursuant to a warrant issued by a FISA judge in a federal court, and concerned 'foreign' surveillance.
But that 'did not involve Russia or any discussions with Russians,' Nunes said, adding that he was 'alarmed' to learn what he did.
Trump has insisted in recent weeks that his predecessor Barack Obama 'wire tapped' him inside Trump Tower last year, promising that new information would be forthcoming.

Based on Nunes' evaluation, the surveillance would have occurred while Obama was still president. Nunes said he has seen no evidence that Trump Tower was surveilled, which was one of Trump's contentions. 
This week Nunes' Committee, along with its counterpart in the U.S. Senate, concluded that no evidence existed to support Trump's allegation.
FBI Director James Comey said much the same thing.
But Nunes said Wednesday that U.S. intelligence reports brought to him by unnamed sources include 'significant information' about Trump and his transition team.
Nunes has briefed House Speaker Paul Ryan, CIA Director Mike Pompeo and NSA Director Mike Rogers. He said will soon share his findings with Comey and the White House.
'I've seen dozens of reports,' Nunes said. 'I don't know if there are more than that ... I'm going to go to the White House and tell them what I've seen.'
'If they don't have it,' he added, 'they need to see it.'
'It's all classified information,' he said, and 'has nothing to do with any criminal investigation. This is normal incidental collection, at least from what I was able to read.'
