Lindsey Graham: Release names of Obama officials who sought to unmask members of Trump campaign

by Jeff Mordock - The Washington Times  |  Published on May 20, 2020

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham on Tuesday called for the Trump administration to release the identities of Obama-era officials who sought to unmask members of the president’s campaign and transition team.

In a letter to acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell and Attorney General William P. Barr, Mr. Graham asked to make public the names of any Obama administration officials involved in unmasking.

“Given the extensive number of requests for the unmasking of General Flynn’s name during this short time period, it raises the question of whether these or other officials sought the unmasking of the identities of other individuals associated with the Trump campaign or transition team,” Mr. Graham, South Carolina Republican, wrote.

Unmasking is a term the intelligence community uses to refer to revealing the identity of an individual on monitored communications. Usually, the individual unmasked is a U.S. citizen involved in contacts with a foreigner or foreign government.
