White House says new information has emerged on Russia probe

The NYT has published the names of two White House staffers who assisted House Intel Chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) when he went to the White House to view classified documents suggesting that Donald Trump and his aides were captured in incidental surveillance.

Citing unnamed USA officials, the Times identified the White House official as "Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence at the National Security Council".

But it's unclear if the documents Rep.

Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who co-authored the story, tweeted that Ellis showed the information to Nunes while Cohen-Watnick had seen it in "another context". Ezra had come upon it in another context. Nunes, who was on Trump's transition team, has declined to elaborate and he shared his information with the White House, but not his Democratic colleagues on the intelligence committee.

Schiff said that he replied to the letter and is "more than willing to come to the White House at the earliest opportunity to review the materials", but said he made clear in his reply that the full House panel will eventually need access to the materials as well.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House refused to say on Thursday whether it secretly fed intelligence reports to a top Republican investigating possible coordination between Russian Federation and the 2016 Trump campaign.

The committee leaders were trying to agree on a common set of initial witnesses, Schiff said, an issue that prompted the cancellation of both an open and closed hearing this week.

Lake, writing in Bloomberg, made two points of particular interest: that Nunes told him that the intelligence reports were sent to the Obama White House, as well as other Executive Branch agencies, and that Nunes "has a history of cultivating independent sources inside the intelligence community", and has a "network of whistleblowers", as seen in his investigations on Benghazi and pressure inside military Central Command to produce positive reports on USA anti-ISIS campaigns.

Democrats say Nunes is too close to the White House and Trump, and they want him to recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer listens to a question during the daily press briefing, Thursday, March 30, 2017, at the White House in Washington. The Times' report seriously calls that into question.

He added that his "smell test" remark was based on Nunes's words at the time. Cohen-Watnick serves as the senior director for intelligence at the NSC. Nunes has resisted, defending his actions.
