White House counters investigation with its own allegations

As you can see above, the idea of making this distinction about the basic details of an extremely serious allegation got Sean Spicer really cheesed off. What do we know today that we didn't know yesterday? "Not all the time".

The White House contends that Nunes' information - which has not been made public - validates Trump's explosive claim that his predecessor wiretapped his NY skyscraper.

Spicer also attempted the trick of explaining a Trump tweet.

"The public should learn a lot more about WHY General Flynn wants immunity when Sally Yates testifies before the House Intelligence Committee", Schiff wrote. Congressional investigators have requested copies of paperwork submitted by Flynn to receive a security clearance to examine whether he fully disclosed payments received from Kremlin-linked firms. 'My assessment was that there weren't any ties between the (Trump) campaign and the Russians'.

"The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington?"

"It was an opening salvo in a battle that is just beginning", Zaid said.

"I can say that we've continued to say the substance of this matter and what continues to come to light in terms of Obama officials admitting either off the record or, frankly, on the record, consistent with what Dr. Farkas says, that there was clearly an attempt to do something politically motivated with the intelligence out there", he said. But the ongoing partisan divides on the House intelligence panel make that a tough slog.

Schiff expressed that if the documents indeed were the same Nunes allegedly reviewed, "this raises profound questions as to why these materials were given to the chairman for the goal of providing to the president instead of being shared directly with the White House, and whether an effort was made to hide their origin by providing them to the chairman first", wrote Schiff in a response letter to an invitation by White House counsel Donald McGahn to view the materials.

City officials believe there could be more than $10 million at stake that Seattle could lose if the feds pull its assistance. The "incessant sabre rattling", added Holmes, is creating problems for law enforcement locally.

Was Trump concerned that his former national security adviser might divulge damaging information in exchange for immunity from prosecution?

The White House officials who reportedly gave Nunes the goodies he then relayed at his bombshell press conference were left dodging reporter inquiries.

Cohen-Watnick was a protege of Flynn, having worked for him at the Pentagon's intelligence shop.

The pace of developments over the last day reveal the mass of problems now beginning to pile up on Trump's White House, as the President's personal political standing continues to decline after only three months.

At least three senior White House officials, including the National Security Council's top lawyer, were involved in the handling of intelligence files - showing Trump campaign officials had been swept up in United States surveillance of foreign nationals - that were shared with the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, according to U.S. officials. "While I can not discuss the content of the documents, if the White House had any concern over these materials, they should have been shared with the full committees in the first place as a part of our ordinary oversight responsibilities". "Chairman Nunes and Ranking Member Schiff, who I understand is expected here later today, both possess the appropriate credentials and clearances", Spicer said.
