Nunes says most of this surveillance apparently happened in "November, December, and January" during transition.

Information gathered during the surveillance, which Nunes said appeared to be legal and “incidental collection,” was unrelated to allegations of Russian collusion, but nonetheless “widely disseminated” within the government.

Trump's communications were collected as part of the surveillance, Nunes says. Adds that it looks like incidental collection.

Nunes: "I know there was incidental collection regarding the president-elect and his team." Doesn't know if surveillance was of phone calls.

“Details about U.S. persons involved in the incoming administration with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value were widely disseminated in intelligence community reports.”
Nunes said the information was “legally brought to him by sources who thought we should know it” and that he could not confirm if Trump himself was under surveillance. The Republican lawmaker also could not confirm whether the information collected had any connection to Trump Tower.
Nunes also said the White House was unaware of the specific surveillance allegations, but that he had already met with the heads of the CIA and NSA.

Nunes says he's spoken to CIA Director Pompeo and NSA Director Rogers about this. Waiting to talk to Comey. He's going to WH after votes.

Seems like Spicer has no details on Nunes presser on surveillance: "I literally heard the statement, came out and briefed."

Given that Nunes described the surveillance as unrelated to the Russia inquiry and incidental, the allegations may stir debate on the vast amounts of data captured by mass surveillance program.

As revealed by Infowars earlier this week, Trump and members of his business and family had information collected between 2004 and 2010 under an NSA metadata program. The data, shared widely throughout the government, was provided to Infowars by law enforcement sources with access to the database.

BREAKING:

REP. NUNES: TRUMP COMMUNICATIONS MAY HAVE BEEN 'MONITORED'

WASHINGTON -- The chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday that the communications of Trump transition officials - possibly including President Donald Trump himself - may have been "monitored" after the election as part of an "incidental collection."

Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates' contacts with Russia. He said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally.

It was unclear whether Trump's own communications were specifically monitored. Nunes initially said "yes" when asked if Trump was among those swept up in the intelligence monitoring, but then said it was only "possible" that the president's communications were picked up.

Nunes said the information on the Trump team was collected in November, December and January, the period after the election in which Trump was holding calls with foreign leaders, interviewing Cabinet secretaries, and was beginning to sketch out administration policy. Nunes said the monitored material was "widely disseminated" in intelligence reports.

Asked whether he believed the transition team had been spied on, Nunes said: "It all depends on one's definition of spying."

The California congressman would not name which Trump associates were picked up through the intelligence collections, nor would he say how he had received the new information. He said he was heading to the White House later Wednesday to brief the president's team.

BREAKING:
CIA CYBER-SPYING TOOLKIT NOW IN HANDS OF HACKERS WORLDWIDE: WIKILEAKS

Amid a trove of documents released by WikiLeaks that allegedly contains “the entire hacking capacity of the CIA” is chilling evidence that everyday devices like smart TVs and cell phones have potentially become critical tools in the effort to spy on American citizens.

Documents released in the 8,761 document and file dump dubbed “Vault 7 Part 1” and titled “Year Zero” -- were obtained from an “isolated, high-security network” at the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Va., a press release from WikiLeaks said. The trove had been “circulated among former U.S. government hackers and contractors,” one of whom allegedly turned the archive to WikiLeaks.

HOW TO TURN OFF SMART TV SNOOPING FEATURES

Among revelations still emerging from the shocking disclosure is an alleged CIA program named “Weeping Angel,” in which Samsung brand “smart” televisions were apparently being used as recording devices. “Weeping Angel places the target TV in a “Fake-Off” mode, so that the owner falsely believes the TV is off when it is on,” WikiLeaks claims. “In 'Fake-Off' mode the TV operates as a bug, recording conversations in the room and sending them over the Internet to a covert CIA server.”

Smart TVs aren’t the only commonly used devices that may have a potentially more-sinister purpose. WikiLeaks is suggesting that “Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows” are also being “turned into covert microphones.” Infected phones, according to the release, “can be instructed to send the CIA the user's geolocation, audio and text communications as well as covertly activate the phone's camera and microphone.”

STOLEN APPLE IDs CAN HOLD YOUR IPHONE HOSTAGE

Gregory Keeley, an expert in the security of digital devices and co-founder of the consulting company Phosphorus, tells Fox News that the problem is also greater than the government's ability to listen-in. "The hacker on the street now has the Intelligence Community’s hacking tool kit. It's that simple."

Fox News also spoke with Matthew Hickey, co-founder and director of the cybersecurity team Hacker House, who thinks it is "unlikely that the exposure is going to cause anyone to stop developing attacks for smart devices.

"Televisions, refrigerators and the Internet of Things will continue to introduce new ways for technology to be used against us," he said. "As more devices are connected to the Internet or connected to our lives, it increases the likelihood of it being hacked and used to spy on us."

“Once Mom and Pop start getting hacked through their Google Home or Amazon Echo, there's going to be some reckoning,” Keeley added.

WikiLeaks claims that its information came from a source who wished “to initiate a public debate about the security, creation, use, proliferation and democratic control of cyberweapons.”

“We do not comment on the authenticity or content of purported intelligence documents," a CIA spokesperson told Fox News.

NORTH KOREA MISSILE TEST SEEN AS CHALLENGE TO TRUMP
Japan PM: "Absolutely intolerable."

The United States and Japan held a joint press conference on Saturday night following reports that North Korea fired a ballistic missile in what would be its first such test of the year.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe condemned North Korea’s latest missile launch calling it, “absolutely intolerable.”
President Donald Trump assured Japan that the U.S. stands behind the country completely.

“The United States of America stands behind Japan, its great ally, 100 percent,” Trump said during the conference at Trump’s south Florida estate.

Abe read a brief statement in which he called on North Korea “to fully comply with relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions.” He said Trump has assured him of U.S. support and that Trump’s presence showed the president’s determination and commitment.
