Rep. Devin Nunes said Thursday that Republicans' concerns about intelligence leaks targeting President Trump are jeopardizing congressional reauthorization of crucial government surveillance tools.

Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act allows the National Security Agency to monitor telephone communications and Internet data generated by foreign nationals.

It is valued by national security experts for its ability to scoop up vast sums of information that can be used to spy on American adversaries and identify terror plots. But it can also incidentally scoop up Americans who speak with foreign nationals. Including, potentially, a newly elected president and his associates.
