Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said Thursday the material the White House wants the House and Senate intelligence leaders to view was discovered by the National Security Council.

Nunes reportedly told Bloomberg's Eli Lake "that his source was not a White House staffer and was an intelligence official", Lake wrote.

The crux of the evidence of collusion was, before the hearing, a senior White House official told a New Yorker reporter to pay special attention to the issue of incidental intelligence collection and to watch how Nunes presses the issue to show how "it's not just incidental, it's systematic".

Nunes hasn't said much about his sourcing, but he has certainly suggested the only reason that he was on the White House grounds is because the information happened to be there and that it wasn't something that was fed to him by parties interested in confirming Trump's evidence-free claim that he was under surveillance during the 2016 election. Nunes' committee is heading an investigation into Russia's involvement in the presidential election, and the chairman did not brief his fellow members on the intelligence reports before holding a press conference and meeting with the president on March 22.

For instance, intelligence agencies may have tapped into a phone call between two Russian diplomats and recorded them talking about Trump or one of his staffers.

"If that was created to hide the origin of the materials, that raises profound questions about just what the White House is doing", Schiff said.

The House panel's work has been deeply, and perhaps irreparably, undermined by Nunes' apparent coordination with the White House.

But it's unclear if the documents Rep.

Veteran U.S. players such as Meghan Duggan, Hilary Knight and Amanda Kessel announced the planned boycott earlier this month. Both sides emerged from the 10-plus hours of talks characterizing the meeting as "productive" and "positive".

Only hours after Yates's attorney informed the White House that Yates would testify despite attempts to invoke "executive privilege" to gag her, Nunes cancelled the hearing at which she was to appear.

Spicer had previously dismissed the notion that the White House had funneled information to Nunes, saying the idea that the congressman would come and brief Trump on material the president's team already had "doesn't pass the smell test".

"The chairman will need to decide whether he is the chairman of an independent investigation", he says, "or if he's going to act as a surrogate of the White House".

Nunes has repeatedly sidestepped questions about who provided him the intelligence reports, though he pointedly has not denied that he sources were in the White House. Nunes angered Schiff and other Democrats on the committee when he shared details about their investigation with the public and the White House before sharing it with them.
