“The overheard conversations involved no illegal activity by anybody of the Trump associates, or anyone they were speaking with,” diGenova said. “In short, the only apparent illegal activity was the unmasking of the people in the calls.”
“It’s unbelievable of the level and degree of the administration to look for information on Donald Trump and his associates, his campaign team and his transition team. This is really, really serious stuff.”
“We’re looking at a potential constitutional crisis from the standpoint that we used an extremely strong capability that’s supposed to be used to safeguard and protect the country,” he said. “And we used it for political purposes by a sitting President. That takes on a new precedent.”
Other official sources with direct knowledge and who requested anonymity confirmed to TheDCNF diGenova’s description of surveillance reports Rice ordered one year before the 2016 presidential election.

I'm not a fan of unnamed sources. Unfortunately it's all we have at this point.
But you don't seem to like any sources on this. When Nunes was the source himself, and publicly confirmed the disturbing abuse, you didn't like that, you demanded the documents yourself.
There's no satisfying you. Maybe you should stop following this story.
Retired Colonel James Waurishuk, an NSC veteran and former deputy director for intelligence at the U.S. Central Command, said that the level of coordination required to pull off such a massive spying operation is staggering and would have required numerous personnel from the White House, NSA, CIA, National Security Council, etc.

lol....If it's Anti Trump,the Left claims "unnamed sources" are perfectly legit and they'll run with it every time....but let anything Pro Trump [ or proof the Dems have been up to their underhanded sh** again ] come out, without names, dates, places and video and it's all bullsh**, right?
All we've heard is "could be" "maybe", "if", etc.....
If they had actual evidence, they'd have used it by now, but so far, all we've seen is....the Dems are up to their underhanded sh** again.
One of the goals listed in the emails was the need for Rice "to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure or policy."
