Representative Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday to defend his public announcement this week, revealing that members of the intelligence community had “incidentally collected” communications from President Trump’s transition team.
Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, faced criticism from colleagues but told Hannity he felt he had “a duty and obligation to tell” the president about what he knew.
“As you know, [Trump’s] been taking a lot of heat in the news media, and I think, to some degree, there are some things that he should look at to see whether, in fact, he thinks the collection was proper or not.”
In the interview, Nunes also spoke about his concern over the lack of an FBI investigation into leaks from Trump’s team and said the leaks need to be tracked down.
