White House says new information has emerged on Russia probe

The White House has invited the top Republican and Democratic members of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence panels to review new material relevant to their investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the USA presidential election, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Thursday.

The White House has invited the top Republican and Democratic members of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence panels to review new material relevant to their investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the election, presidential spokesman Sean Spicer says.

Stephen Slick, a former CIA and NSC official, said it would be "highly unusual and likely unprecedented" for a member of Congress to travel to the White House to view intelligence reports "without prior authorization". The material, he said, responded to the House Intelligence Committee's request for "documents necessary to determine whether information collected on USA persons was mishandled and leaked". "That question the White House really needs to answer". Cohen-Watnick, as Politico wrote on March 14, appealed the decision to White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and senior adviser Jared Kushner, two men he became close with during the transition.

"We're doing our best to try and get the investigation back on track", Schiff said following the meeting.

Spicer's comments come as the leaders of the House intelligence committee are trying to get their Russian Federation investigation back on the rails, according to Schiff.

The committee's work has been deeply, and perhaps irreparably, undermined by Nunes' apparent coordination with the White House. He would not say whether it was the same material Nunes had already seen.

"There's a belief that the President has maintained that there was surveillance that occurred during the 2016 election that was improper and that we want people to look into this and to take the legal, responsible steps to both understand it and then address it", Spicer said. He has said he will not share his intel with the committee.

Nunes earlier this month said he had been shown information indicating that the USA intelligence community incidentally collected information on members of President Trump's transition team.

Nunes has said the information he received did not support that allegation, which has also been disputed by Obama and top intelligence officials. "But our job is to do everything in our power to be responsible to go forward and be constructive and that's what we're doing".

It is unclear if they are the same as those viewed by Nunes.
