Chairman of the House Intel Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) shut down reports on his White House meetings as “mostly wrong” during an interview Friday afternoon.
Nunes said he would not wade into sharing “sources and methods” but added that reports by the New York Times which stated White House officials had a hand in providing the information to Nunes are “mostly wrong.”

He said they’re full of “innuendo” and while there were people who were probably aware of him being on White House grounds, “that doesn’t make them the source of my information.”
Bloomberg View columnist Eli Lake wrote yesterday that Nunes had “misled” him by saying his source of information was an intel official and not a White House staffer:
The chairman told me Thursday that elements of the Times story were inaccurate. But he acknowledged: “I did use the White House to help to confirm what I already knew from other sources.”
