That closely maps with how Rep. Devin Nunes described the information he viewed at the White House last week, and subsequently briefed Trump on during a hastily arranged session.
Nunes earlier this month said he had been shown information indicating that the USA intelligence community incidentally collected information on members of President Trump's transition team.
Committee chairman Devin Nunes responded "Why would I?" when asked Tuesday if he should recuse himself.
A White House spokesperson declined to comment, explained NYT. He's become a controversial figure in intelligence circles, but Trump made a decision to keep him on over the objections of the CIA, according to the officials.

Namely, he still wants to know how Nunes obtained the information that suggested Trump's transition team had been placed under surveillance.
Nunes and the other Intelligence Committee members have the security clearance to read the documents-but it took a whistleblower to make them available.
