Trump Staffer Who Gave Nunes Intel Leaves

The Trump administration official who gave a Republican congressman intelligence reports showing the president and associates were incidentally surveilled by U.S. intelligence is out of a job. Ezra Cohen-Watnick left the National Security Council on Wednesday, the White House said. Cohen-Watnick gave Rep. Devin Nunes, who led the House's Trump-Russia probe, reports supposedly showing Obama administration officials spied on Trump and associates. Nunes went to the White House by himself in March to receive the information, a move that derailed the House intelligence committee's investigation and later saw Nunes recuse himself from leading the Russia probe.
