House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes told CNN that he was on White House grounds on the day before he announced that President Donald Trump had been caught up in surveillance by U.S. intelligence.

Nunes told CNN that he was not actually in the White House itself and also would not identify the source with whom he met there.

"To protect his source, the chairman has repeatedly said he will not reveal any information at all about the source," Nunes spox Jack Langer said, according to USA Today.

A Nunes spokesman said that Nunes went to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, on White House grounds, to view the classified information that he would then announce the following day.

Unclear is why Nunes would need to view classified information on White House grounds since the Republican congressman uses daily a secure office at the Capitol, NBC News reported.

Nunes told CNN that he went there to "confirm what I already knew."

Nunes stressed to CNN that he was not there about Russia, and his spokesman also said that Nunes "is extremely concerned by the possible improper unmasking of names of US citizens."

After holding the impromptu press conference to announce his findings, Nunes then went back to the White House to brief Trump about what he had found the day before on White House grounds.
