Multiple Trump transition officials were “unmasked” by the intelligence community in what could be repeated violations of federal secrecy laws, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday.
The information was all gathered legally, Rep. Devin Nunes said, but at some point multiple Trump officials’ names were attached to the information gathered by the intelligence community. That could be a violation of law, depending on the reasons for it.
He said the information appeared to have been scooped up in regular, legal intelligence gathering during November, December and January.
“I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show the president elect and his team were at least monitored and disseminated in what appears to be intelligence reporting channels,” the congressman said.
