The cover-up of the Russian collusion hoax is unraveling by the day.
Each headline brings bombshell announcements that put the investigation closer to Barack Obama’s doorstep.
And now Barack Obama’s allies just found out their original crime got reported to the authorities.
In December 2016, a member of Barack Obama’s Deep State committed a felony punishable by up to ten years in prison by leaking to the Washington Post the fact that incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was picked up on a FISA wiretap speaking to the Russian Ambassador.
That led to Flynn’s firing, prosecution, and the media firestorm surrounding the Russian collusion conspiracy theory.
In FISA wiretaps, Americans names are concealed and only officials with the proper authorization can request to “unmask” those Americans because having their identity helps them understand the context of a conversation.
But now acting Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell is declassifying the list of Obama administration officials who unmasked Flynn back in 2016.
ABC’s Martha Raddatz reported:
Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has declassified a list of former Obama administration officials who were allegedly involved in the so-called “unmasking” of former national security adviser Michael Flynn in his conversations with the former Russian ambassador during the presidential transition, a senior U.S. official tells ABC News.
Grenell, who remains the U.S. ambassador to Germany along with being the acting DNI, visited the Justice Department last week and brought the list with him, according to the official.
To this day no one has been prosecuted for the illegal leak that led to Flynn’s downfall.
Many Trump supporters hope that Grenell’s move to reveal who in the Obama administration “unmasked” Flynn is the first step in identifying the leaker and holding them accountable.
