W Examiner: “A top House Democrat is calling for an investigation into House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes for telling the White House about new information that President Trump and his associates might have been caught up in government surveillance.
Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said on CNN Thursday that Nunes shouldn’t have gone to the press and then briefed Trump about an investigation where Trump is a subject. Cummings said Nunes compromised the independence of his investigation into alleged collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia by doing so.”
Cummings: “The intelligence committee is a very special committee, they are privy to information most of the Congress may never see. You expect them to be extremely confidential. What he did was basically to go to the president, who’s being investigated by the FBI and others and by the intelligence committee, to give him information.”
Couldn’t tell the president about masking?
