Washington( CNN) After its evaluation of the same intelligence reports brought to glowing by House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, both Republican and Democratic lawmakers and aides has all along been felt no proof that Obama administration officials did anything bizarre or illegal, numerous informants in both parties tell CNN.

Their private appraisal belies President Donald Trump’s accusations that former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice broke the law by seeking the “unmasking” of US individuals’ names. Trump had claimed the matter was a “massive story.”

However, over the last week, several members and staff of the House and Senate intelligence committees have reviewed intelligence reports related to those requests at NSA headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland.
