WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday criticized the White House for playing a role “in selectively and surreptitiously delivering documents” to committee chairman Devin Nunes.

“If the White House had any concerns about these documents, or any other documents, they should have provided them to our committee weeks ago,” Rep. Adam Schiff said in a statement.

He said he hoped the documents, related to the surveillance that swept some communications from Trump associates, would be available to the full House and Senate intelligence committees “soon.”
