Now we note although they use the term ‘surveillance,’ they are referencing ‘incidental collection’ which means it was not legally targeted against the Trump team but that they were picked up any way and then it was used against them by unmasking.
As we have been saying. Being ‘legal collection’ doesn’t justify the use against them, make unmasking the names proper or justify the illegal leaks.
Members of the Donald Trump transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under surveillance during the Obama administration following November’s election, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes told reporters Wednesday.
Nunes said the surveillance appears to have been legal, incidental collection and that it does not appear to have been related to concerns over collusion with Russia.
Nunes is going to the White House later Wednesday to brief the Trump administration on what he has learned, which he said came from “sources.”
