Was Trump Right About Being Bugged?

Rep. Devin Nunes is announcing he has uncovered information that the Trump transition team was caught up in intelligence surveillance.

"Members of the intelligence community "incidentally collected" communications from the Trump transition team during legal surveillance operations of foreign targets, a top Republican lawmaker said Wednesday afternoon.
House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said this produced "dozens" of reports which eventually unmasked several individuals’ identities and were "widely disseminated."
Of course, this must await further facts, but it appears to at least partially vindicate Trump on his claims though there is as yet no indication he personally was "monitored".

Oh, come on Gary, you used to work in law enforcement. If you bugged a probable drug dealer, and they got a call from someone not under surveillance, the call got recorded, right? So if the FBI had a legal tap on some Russians, who received or placed regular calls on the tapped phone line from or to the Trump organization...
