The chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, a Republican from California, announced Wednesday that President Trump's aides may have been monitored incidentally during the presidential transition.

It complicates an already fraught debate over the president's claim, which he made with no proof, that former President Obama wiretapped his phones. Here & Now’s Robin Young speaks with Matthew Waxman (@mattwaxman1), a national security law professor at Columbia Law School.

This segment aired on March 23, 2017.
