Report: NSA Ready to Share Intel on Trump Wiretap With Congress, But DNI Blocking Efforts
It is being reported that the NSA is ready to share the intelligence they have on the surveillance of Trump and his team with Congress, but the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) is blocking efforts.
According to the Daily Caller:
The National Security Agency is ready to distribute intelligence documents related to intelligence intercepts of Trump transition team associates, but the Director of National Intelligence is blocking such an effort for now, Fox News reports.
A spokesman for the Director of National Intelligence disputed this report calling it “not correct.”
Fox has learned that the NSA is prepared to share the documents with the intelligence committees. But DNI is blocking that transfer for now.

The quicker that this Intel is shared with Congress, the better it is for the Trump administration. This will vindicate him and prove to everyone that he was correct when he came out and said that Obama had ‘wiretapped’ Trump Tower.
