Obama Officials Admit to Receiving ‘Unmasked’ Intelligence Reports During Election Campaign

Two high-profile officials who served under the Obama administration told a Senate Judiciary subcommittee on May 8 that they had reviewed classified information in which Donald Trump, his associates, or members of Congress had been unmasked.

When an intelligence agency gives transcripts of intercepted communications, it often seals the names of U.S. citizens. When a recipient of an intelligence report requests to have the name revealed, it is referred to as “unmasking.”

The testimonies by Sally Yates, the former acting attorney general, and James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence (DNI), raised the question of whether communications of the Trump team were gathered for legitimate purposes or for political purposes.

Unfortunately, these upstanding Americans were unable to report these felony criminal acts because DemoRat operatives are still above the Law.

This is the real scandal of the 2016 election and it is being ignored because the radical violent lefts messiah could be drawn into this highly illegal activity easily. This is why the radical violent left is pushing the Russia crap so vehemently. I suspect that some establishment white trash Republicans like McInsane could be pulled into this mess as well, thus the united front by the violent leftist.
