Members of Donald Trump’s transition team were “unmasked” in what might be construed as multiple violations of U.S. secrecy laws, according to the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
Rep. Devin Nunes revealed the action Wednesday.
Nunez said the information was gathered legally, but numerous Trump team names were attached the data that was gathered by the intelligence community, the Washington Times reports.
That could be a violation of law.
Nunes said the information may have been acquired during otherwise routine intelligence gathering between the election and the inauguration.
“I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show the president elect and his team were at least monitored and disseminated in what appears to be intelligence reporting channels,” the congressman said, according to the Times.
He added, however, that there is still no evidence Trump Tower was wiretapped, as the president stubbornly maintains.
Trump has called for an investigation of leaks from the intelligence community.
