House Intelligence Committee ranking member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told reporters today that he has been invited by White House counsel to review intelligence materials that have to do with foreign surveillance and U.S. persons who may have been incidentally caught up in those conversations.

Last week, the White House allowed Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes to review documents. When Nunes revealed his knowledge of the documents' existence, he said names of persons in the Trump transition team had been "unmasked," meaning their names should have been anonymous in the raw intelligence reports, but weren't. Schiff said then that the timing of the request by the White House to view the documents "concerns me."
