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".

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".

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.
