Paul Ryan: ‘Whistleblower-Type Person’ was Devin Nunes’s Source for Intel on Trump

Paul Ryan whistleblower

House Intel Chairman Devin Nunes said he’ll never reveal the source of the intel he received that Donald Trump had been captured on incidental surveillance, and has still not shared the intel with the others on his panel investigating Trump’s links to Russia.

House Speaker Paul Ryan told CBS This Morning that the intel came from a “whistle-blower type person.”

Said Ryan: “He had told me that a whistleblower-type person had given him some information that was new, that spoke to the last administration and part of this investigation…He briefs me about it, didn’t know the content of it, only knew the nature of it and that he was going to brief others. He was going to brief everybody….What Chairman Nunes said was he came into possession of new information he thought was valuable to this investigation and he was going to go and inform people about it.”

But Ryan later in the interview says that he’s seen the documents.

Writes Daily Kos: “At this point, Ryan is saying that he has seen the documents, but isn’t sure that Nunes has seen them. And that’s far from the limit of the craziness.”

Multiple Democratic lawmakers have called for Nunes to step away from the investigation and recuse himself.
