Rand Paul: ‘Biden and More than a Dozen Obama Admin. Officials Requested and Received the Power to Unmask Gen. Flynn’
PAUL: "Yesterday I sent a letter to Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell concerning declassification of which Obama administration officials asked to unmask Gen. Flynn. Today I received the shocking answer that Vice President Biden and more than a dozen Obama administration officials requested and received the power to unmask Gen. Flynn during his phone call with the Russian ambassador. The fact that Vice President Biden and all of the President's inner circle, President Obama's inner circle, individually requested to unmask Gen. Flynn is very troubling. In addition to Vice President Biden, James Clapper, James Comey, John Brennan, Samantha powers, and the president's chief of staff all individually asked to unmask General Flynn and to listen to his phone conversation. Intriguingly, a dozen more administration officials all chose to unmask Gen. Flynn. Why is this important? Unmasking involves revealing the identity of the American's private phone conversation without a constitutional warrant."
