Fox News: ‘It’s Unprecedented the Way’ NSA Intercepts of Trump Team Spread Through Gov’t
HOUSLEY: "The fact is a lot of these men, women in the intelligence communities did not want to speak about what’s going on because they were concerned about those methods being known. But now they figure they might as well clarify things since Nunes has been leaked to by someone they don’t know or at least they tell me they don’t know. We know that there was this; there was electronic surveillance of Trump and the people close to Donald Trump, including some supporters for up to a year before inauguration. That information was disseminated we’re told through NSA channels. It’s unprecedented, I’m told, the way this was done. The mention of U.S. citizens was supposed to be masked, that means basically taken out of a report. So for example, if I call somebody in Bulgaria, and that’s picked up somehow by — by our agencies and there’s nothing there involving national security, there’s nothing there involving a crime, that report would come out and it would say, say American number one or my name would not be there. What I’m told is that when these reports came out, names were there and that is unprecedented."
