Devin Nunes drops a bombshell about ‘unmasking’ under Obama

2 min read

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said in a letter to Dan Coats, director of National Intelligence, that there were “hundreds” of “unmasking” requests under the Obama administration and that many were made under suspicious circumstances.

Nunes said in the letter that it was possible the access to NSA information could have been used improperly for political purposes.

“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,” he said, “including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information.

“[T]his Committee has learned that one official, whose position has no apparent intelligence-related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama Administration,” he continued.

Nunes claimed several of the requests appeared to be lacking in justification for the information sought. He noted that some requests were followed upon by leaks to the media, implying Obama administration officials were the sources of those leaks.
