If anyone were in Nuness position, he or she might doubt that the new Trump administration could fully trust Director Comey or others in the intelligence agencies to provide disinterested appraisals of such information, given that a number of intelligence officials may themselves, in theory, have been involved in the intercepts and their dissemination. He might advise that any possible sources connected even remotely to the White House should have disclosed the existence of such information to his boss. Nor would he necessarily believe that Representative Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) would be a reliable partner on the intelligence committee. Would Schiff remain silent about the true significance of such information while it was being distilled and examined by the committee, given his previous public insistence that the committee had new information incriminating the Trump administration though to date Schiff has not presented such information or even characterized it?
Some notion of such intrigue, or rather the former nexus between Congress, the Obama administration, the intelligence agencies, and the monitoring of incoming Trump officials, was inadvertently disclosed recently by former Obama-administration Department of Defense deputy assistant secretary and current MSNBC commentator Evelyn Farkas.
Note again that Farkas left the Defense Department in September 2015 and became an adviser to the Hillary Clinton campaign (which accused the Trump campaign of collusion with the Russians). One wonders how a political activist in 2016 was still influential enough to speed up the release of what we knew.

The Intelligence Agencies, and the State Dept, should be trimmed by about 95%. They are all scum.

We are clearly in CCWII (cold phase). It’s stuff like this that makes it seem unlikely it will stay cold forever.
Did anyone read the comments? Many were truly frightening!
Kind of like sneaking the debate questions to Hillary ahead of time...
Was Farkas 'sneaking the debate questions' to Hillary ahead of time... One more liar, one more thief, one more unethical democrat?
Good read...VDH makes a lot of sense on this.
