During the press briefing on Monday White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that it was “possible” the House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes was given information by the White House to use in defense of President Donald Trump’s wiretap claims.
Nunes admitted that he received the information about the supposed surveillance while at the White House. However, he claims that it did not come from White House staff.
When Spicer was asked if he could definitely say that Nunes did not get his intelligence from a White House staff member, he said, “I can’t say 100 percent that I know anything he briefed him on. I can tell you through his public comments is he has said he had multiple sources that he came to a conclusion on. The degree to which any of those sources weighed on the ultimate outcome of what he came to a decision on, I don’t know.”
“So it’s possible,” one White House correspondent asked.
“Anything is possible,” Spicer said.
