Fox News: NYT Reports Two W.H. Officials Helped Giving Devin Nunes Intel Reports
SMITH: "'The New York Times' is now reporting, as of the last 1 ½ hours or so, that two White House officials helped give the Republican chairman Devin Nunes intelligence reports that he then shared with President Trump but did not share with his own committee or for that matter, as far as we know, anyone else. According to the reporting of 'The Times,' one of those officials is Michael Ellis. He’s a lawyer who works on national security issues at the White House Counsel's office. He reportedly worked for the House Intelligence Committee. The second man is a 30-year-old named Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director of intelligence at the National Security Council. According to several reports, President Trump earlier this month saved his job after the national security adviser, Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster told Cohen-Watnick that he was moved to a different position. That apparently happened because of concerns that the man was too political, too pro-Trump."
