UPDATE 11:40am |  Rep. Schiff on unmasking material...

He said what Nunes has referenced on documents referencing Trump in recent weeks is presumably a subset of what they requested from the NSA.

UPDATE 11:36am |  Rep. Schiff spoke about Trump's wiretapping claims:

"The president made a slanderous accusation against his predecessor."

He added that there is no evidence to support his accusation. He said the accusation damaged the US' relationship with Britain.

UPDATE 11:28am |  Top House intel Rep. Adam Schiff (D) told reporters that Nunes has not shared any new information with Democrats or Republicans. He said they reject the cancellation of the hearing and that the GOP is trying to "choke off" information.

He said they welcome witnesses to come in and testify to their hearing. He did, however, confirm that they did request documents and that he welcomes Manafort's testimony to take place in open session. "As much of this investigation that we can do in public, I believe that we should do."

UPDATE 10:46 am |  Nunes said Trump's former campaign chairman has volunteered to be interviewed by the committee.

UPDATE 10:42 am |   Nunes on Friday told reporters that he would not reveal his sources, but that it appeared that all surveillance was legal.

House Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on Friday said he has requested the FBI brief the full committee on information regarding ongoing counter intelligence into Russia.

He added that Paul Manafort's name did not appear in the seen documents, but that additional names were unmasked in the documents.

He also confirmed that the wiretap of Trump Tower did not happen.
