Fox News is reporting the individual who unmasked names of US citizens in intelligence reports is a high-ranking, well-known individual. The network also alleges Trump and the names of members of his transition team were unmasked for purely political purposes.

Adam Housely, Fox News reporter on the Nunes/intel report beat, confirmed a New York Times report from Thursday, which named two individuals they believed were Nunes sources. Housely clarified that Ezra Cohen-Watnick and Michael Ellis were not sources but were helping Chairman of the House Intel Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, navigate the intel waters.

Nunes’ source is still unknown.

Democrats claim Nunes was and is colluding with the White House on the story as a means to distract from FBI’s investigation into Trump and his associates alleged Russian ties.

Nunes confirmed he viewed the information showing the unmasking of US citizens on White House grounds, a secure location.
