Skip to comments.Nunes: Obama political aides made hundreds of unmasking requests
Posted on 07/28/2017 1:01:53 PM PDT by detective
Intelligence committee chairman David Nunes revealed in a letter to DNI Dan Coats that he has uncovered hundreds of requests to unmask the identities of Americans found in overseas intel reports during the last year of the Obama administration and that most of them carried no official justification.
Nunes says most of the requests came from White House political aides and were not related to intelligence or national security work. He also says some of the requests to unmask identities were for Trump campaign and transition aides. The Hill:

"Nunes disclosed that he had seen data suggesting Trump campaign and transition officials were having their names unmasked by departing officials in the Obama White House. National Security Adviser Susan Rice and CIA Director John Brennan have acknowledged making such requests though they insisted the requests were for legitimate work reasons."
And where is Sessions?
If Republicans had done this the MSM would be screaming to see heads roll. Watergate was a parking ticket by comparison.
This sort of thing used to be illegal until Obama relaxed privacy rules in 2011. So while it's not technically illegal (Nunes and others think it should be), it is a clear abuse of the privilege. It may even be an abuse of power if the White House used the unmasking to leak the names of Trump officials to the press for political purposes.
So IMO this might not fall under Session's jurisdiction.
Saint Jeffery the Innocent, will be right on it, right after he finds Bigfoot in El Salvador.
McCabe is using foreign nationals, foreign intelligence officers to get around the FBI's need to go through the FISA Court to do wire taps for cell phones and landlines or for intercepting e-mail communications. Using the "Liason Loophole", is what it's called - avoids having to do any FISA warrants or do any kind of paperwork. So this connection here, between Imran Awan and McCabe is going to be very strong in the next few days.
Clearly an unhappy bunch in your photo.
I wonder if perhaps these people simply object to having to pose for YAGP (Yet Another Group Photo.)
In fact I think, for these people, it goes deeper. I think they object to life itself, to the fact that things are turning out so poorly compared to their dreams.
I could be wrong. But that would be a rare event.
Senator Burr, the Head of the Senate Intelligence committee, said the “Unmasking” was all a “Creation” of Nunes, and that yes, some people were “Unmasked”, but it was inadvertently.
When he had Rice before his committee last week he asked NO questions about “Unmasking, he only asked about Russian Interference and Trump’s campaign. That is what he are up against.
The only things missing from that photo is the neck tattoos and gang finger signs. Democrats have ugly souls as much as they pretend to better the American populace. Ugly inside and out.
Any relation to Devin Nunes?
Above The Law
Have a nice day tax payer.
This is a photo of Obama’s White House staff the day President elect Trump first visited the Obama White House.
The last thing the establishment in both parties wants is to have revealed how the NSA apparatus they saved - against an insurrection from both the far left and right - was abused by the Obama Admin.
“This sort of thing used to be illegal until Obama relaxed privacy rules in 2011. So while it’s not technically illegal (Nunes and others think it should be), it is a clear abuse of the privilege.”
It was illegal because even the relaxed rules required judicial approval and there were restrictions on spying on Americans.
It was illegal for the government to spy on people for purely political purposes and to lie about it.

LOL. Well I was pretty close then. Things did not turn out as planned for these jerks.
I have finally realized, nothing will be investigated, and virtually nothing accomplished in the Next Four Year. Trump has already lost to the deep state.

Translation from LibSpeak
Obama’s people asked for 1,500,000,001 and the Trump team asked for 1 - which makes it equal.
Along the same lines as a Lib with 50000000000000001% of the vote wins in a landslide while an R win with 62% of the vote is too close to call and a recount is in order.
They look like spoiled, incompetent misfits who are miserable no matter what.
According to Sara Carter of Circa news, the you- know- what is going to hit the fan. Sean had her on last night and just a little while ago and there are big names in Barry’s administration who went to great lengths to unmask Trump associates. If Sessions ignores this, I give up.
