6. it is reported that Devin Nunes told Trump in a way that made it sound as if only Schiff was briefed

...and that's why Trump blew his stack. Nunes is a weasel of the worst kind. Now it appears he will use bad info, or lie, in order to light a fire under Trump.

9. Greenwald and Snowden were unavailable for comment

I seem to remember them making mountains of cash screaming about the potential horrors of a politicized intelligence service...
