WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two White House officials played a role in providing House of Representatives Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes with documents showing President Donald Trump and his associates were swept up in surveillance by U.S. intelligence agencies, the New York Times reported on Thursday.

Citing unnamed U.S. officials, the Times identified the White House officials as "Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence at the National Security Council, and Michael Ellis, a lawyer who works on national security issues at the White House Counsel’s Office."
