President Trump’s not as crazy as folks have been saying. Recently, “smoking gun” evidence might just prove the Obama outfit did indeed surveille then-president-elect Trump and his team between November and January. The House Intelligence Committee will be assessing the information.
A Republican, congressional team has been leading the search to uncover more proof of this development. Thus far, Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been reviewing the classified information (Team Trump’s communique). Capitol Hill cannot disclose sources that have submitted this evidence. However, it has been learned Nunes was in the know of the Team Trump surveillance prior to the president tweeting his suspicions.

While intelligence is quite confident Obama’s outfit did a covert, pre-Trump spy game fronting as standard foreign-threat surveillance, they’ll have to confirm the US individuals who are mentioned in the information. More, the source informed the document trail’s name dropping doesn’t lead to any reasonable motive other than defamation of then-forthcoming Team Trump.
This might be a dragged-out situation (longer than it already has), as the FBI is seeming uncommunicative with the House Intelligence Committee’s information inquiries. However, the NSA will apparently be more resourceful and cooperative—their intelligence is to be superior and thorough when compared to what Nunes has conveyed thus far.
While the committee will be taking its time to review all the information (they may not even have deciphered all the documents upon assessment), there may be an update as early as the week of March 27th. Additionally, the thus-far-anonymous submitting sources provided the information over a large chunk of time. Nunes seems to be the only privy to not only viewing the documents but speaking on them as well. He’s also the sole, committee member communicating with the NSA in terms of intelligence retrieval. But there may just be another window, as Committee Ranking Member Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) is in the know on the intelligence Nunes has acquired.
CIA Direct Mike Pompeo’s throwing his support at the document-deciphering effort, as he’s curious of just how far the Obama outfit went to creep on Team Trump. And while Nunes opined he saw proof to back up Trump’s claim, the “incidental surveillance” is apparently lawful yet concerning.
“What I’ve read bothers me,” Nunes said to the media, “and I think it should bother the president himself, and his team because I think some of it seems to be inappropriate.”
Schiff wasn’t too thrilled on Nunes’s statement.
“If accurate, this information should have been shared with members of the committee, but it has not been,” Schiff said in a statement.
Yes, this is indeed a ball-of-yarn situation, but it will unfurl as these “sources” provide more…
