White House finds more ‘material’ on surveillance and offers to share it with Congress

White House finds more ‘material’ on surveillance and offers to share it with CongressThe White House is offering to share with key congressional leaders “material that has come to light” about the handling of communications intercepts involving American citizens, press secretary Sean Spicer said Thursday. Spicer said the new material was discovered by national security staffers “in the ordinary course of business.” He said a letter had been sent, offering to make the information available to House intelligence committee Chairman Devin Nunes and ranking member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and to the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee. The announcement during Spicer’s regular daily press briefing is the latest twist in the controversy that was touched off weeks ago by President Trump’s tweet alleging wiretapping of Trump Tower.
