Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) just revealed something huge about the Obama administration. They apparently made hundreds of unmasking requests without any justification during the 2016 Presidential election.
According to the Hill, Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif) in a letter to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats outlined that there were multiple requests made to unmask people for political reasons without any justification on why the info was needed.
Remember what Susan Rice said: “I leaked nothing to nobody.”
“We have found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information,” Nunes wrote in the letter to Coats.
Susan Rice and CIA John Brennan said that they made such requests, according to the Hill. But, they both decline to acknowledge whether making the requests were for legitimate work reasons.
Nunes says that during Obama’s last year in office, hundreds of unmasking requests by Obama aides for Americans came through. He claims that they didn’t have much justification for the unmasking.
“The committee has learned that one official, whose position had no apparent intelligence related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama administration,” Nunes wrote. “Of those requests, only one offered a justification that was not boilerplate.”
