Republicans in Congress are expecting a "smoking gun" showing the Obama administration intentionally spied on Trump associates, and possibly President Donald Trump himself, Fox News reported.

According to Fox News, classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, supposedly seen by House Intelligence Committee chair, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., came from multiple sources.

Citing its own unnamed sources, Fox News said the intelligence backed up information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes even before President Donald Trump accused his predecessor of having bugged him.

"The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump," Fox News reported.

The key to the conclusion, the sources tell Fox News, is the unmasking of selected people in the intelligence.

"The paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration," Fox News reported.

The National Security Agency is expected to produce documents to the House Intelligence committee by Friday, Fox News reported.

The NSA document production is expected to produce more intelligence than Nunes has so far seen or described – including what one source described as a potential "smoking gun" establishing the spying, Fox News reported.
