According to a Daily Beast report later over the weekend, Nunes went off the grid that night to meet a source and view dozens of intelligence reports, including accounts of meetings involving President Donald Trump's advisers.
"Chairman Nunes met with his source at the White House grounds in order to have proximity to a secure location where he could view the information provided by the source", Langer said.
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) made several bad calls last week before and after his Wednesday press conference revealing information about the panel's investigation into President Trump's wiretap claims.
Representative Devin Nunes, a Republican from California, declined to identify his source, but said it was an intelligence official, not a White House staffer.
A government official said Nunes was seen Tuesday night at the National Security Council offices of the Eisenhower building which, other than the White House Situation Room, is the main area on the complex to view classified information in a secure room.
Beyond the communications between President Trump's administration and campaign officials with Russia, Trump has also refused to release his tax returns, breaking forty years of tradition of presidential candidates releasing this information.
Democratic Rep. Jim Himes, a member of the House Intel Committee, told CNN on Monday that the committee has been kept "totally out of the loop" on Nunes' actions and whereabouts.
However, there are a number of locations in Washington, D.C., that offer the same access - leading some to wonder if the location of the meeting indicates the information came from inside the White House.
Still, Nunes told Bloomberg that he'd reached out to his "network of whistleblowers" over the past month to try to determine what kind of surveillance, if any, Trump's transition team had been under.
Spicer said there's a difference between a leak and a member of Congress like Nunes being cleared to receive certain information.
"You can ask me every single name that exists on the planet, and I'm still not going to tell you who our sources are", he told reporters Friday.
Got that? Nunes goes to the White House, learns some stuff, and then returns to the White House the next day to have a meeting with the president about all the stuff he's discovered.
The ranking Democrat on the committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., declared Wednesday he has "profound doubt" about the integrity and independence of the committee's probe, and has pushed for an independent commission to look into alleged ties between Trump's team and Russian Federation, which is suspected of interfering with the election. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes". "It sure seems like the White House after what came out on Monday was scrambling to do anything it could to put another smoke bomb into this investigation".
Nunes' spokesman did not specify when he visited White House property.
In fact, the Senate Intelligence Committee will hold its second open hearing on its own investigation into Russia's intelligence activities on Thursday.
