The surveillance information House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes disclosed Wednesday about intercepted communications between Trump campaign officials was "powerful," former Michigan Rep. Pete Hoekstra told Newsmax TV on Thursday.

"I heard about these documents on Tuesday," Hoekstra, a Republican who chaired the committee from 2004 to 2007, told "The Joe Pags Show."

"Someone — actually, through an intermediary — contacted me and told me what they had had," he said. "It's like, wow.

"It's outrageous what appears to have gone on in the White House.

"Yesterday afternoon, I was watching Devin — and it's like I've got my second source."

Hoekstra said his understanding of the intelligence data is "we have actual transcripts of intercepted calls.

"It doesn't really matter if it was inadvertent, accidental, or intentional — but the calls between both people that were targeted by our intelligence community," he told Pags. "They're looking at foreign sources.

"Our intelligence community is restricted. They have to look at foreign intelligence.

"They can't spy on Americans."
