President Trump told reporters Wednesday afternoon that he feels “somewhat” vindicated by statements made by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes earlier that day.
Nunes revealed to the media Wednesday morning that the Obama administration had in fact incidentally collected President Trump’s personal communications during the 2016 election, and he decided to brief POTUS on the report because he viewed the findings as alarming.

Following the briefing from Nunes, a reporter asked President Trump if he felt “vindicated,” to which POTUS responded, “I somewhat do.”
“I very much appreciate the fact that they found what they found,” he added.
POTUS ignored followup questions on the subject.
