Former House Intel Chair Pete Hoekstra explains to Fox Business how the surveillance program works:
Hoekstra also talked to the Wall Street Journal, and it looks like the real story isn’t some leftist dream of Russian manipulation, but a story of the intelligence community hoarding information they aren’t supposed to have — and refusing to be accountable for any of it.
When I was chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, I was routinely involved in briefings as a member of the “Gang of Eight”—both parties’ leaders in the House and Senate and on the intelligence committees. I cannot recall how many times I asked to see raw intelligence reporting and was refused because that stuff is just not made available to policy makers.
But according to Mr. Nunes, such information made its way to the Obama White House before Inauguration Day. Few if any people working in the White House would ever need to see raw intelligence. Like intelligence committee members, they are typically consumers of intelligence products, not raw intelligence.
The raw transcripts of masked persons – or unmasked persons, or U.S. persons who can be easily identified – making their way to the White House is very likely unprecedented. One can only imagine who, at that point, might be reading these reports. Valerie Jarrett? Susan Rice? Ben Rhodes? The president himself? We don’t know, and the people who do aren’t talking at the moment.”
