House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes apologized to members of his panel Thursday for not informing Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat, before going public with allegations that Trump transition messages were inadvertently intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies.

A committee aide said that Nunes apologized “for not sharing information about the documents he saw with the minority before going public” and that “he pledged to work with them on this issue.”

Schiff blasted Nunes for briefing the White House on his claims before telling his own committee, which is conducting a wide-ranging investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.
