Ric Grenell – Director of National Intelligence
Breaking update: Acting DNI Richard Grenell declassified the list of Obama officials involved in the unmasking of General Mike Flynn in his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Grenell was seen delivering a satchel of documents to the DOJ last week and according to ABC, he also discussed the list of Obama officials involved in unmasking Flynn.
The names of the officials who were involved in unmasking General Flynn in his calls to Kislyak have not been released to the public yet.
Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has sought to declassify a list of former Obama administration officials who were allegedly involved in the so-called “unmasking” of former national security adviser Michael Flynn in his conversations with the former Russian ambassador during the presidential transition, a senior U.S. official tells ABC News.
Grenell, who remains the U.S. ambassador to Germany along with being the acting DNI, visited the Justice Department last week to discuss the declassification of the list, according to the official.
Recall, General Flynn’s December 2016 phone calls with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were intercepted and Flynn was illegally unmasked — after Flynn’s identity was revealed, the transcripts of his phone calls were then leaked to the Washington Post. Flynn’s leaked calls were published by WaPo’s David Ignatius on January 12, 2017 which led to Flynn being fired as National Security Advisor in February of 2017.
Obama’s former NatSec advisor Susan Rice was forced to acknowledge she unmasked Trump’s senior advisors during the transition period, however she maintained it was not politically motivated. According to previous reports by John Solomon, Obama’s Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power also unmasked hundreds of Americans in Obama’s last year in office. In fact, Samantha Power sought to unmask Americans on a near daily basis.
Congressman Nunes has been on the front lines accusing the criminal Obama administration of illegally unmasking Trump’s transition team and it looks like we may soon find out who targeted Flynn!
The Justice Department dropped its case against Flynn last Thursday after bombshell documents were released showing he was framed by the FBI.
Ed Henry broke the news tonight that DNI Richard Grenell walked a “satchel of documents” over to the Department of Justice on Thursday.
Henry says the satchel contained more transcripts that will likely be released on Friday.
Ed Henry: Breaking tonight, Schiff may be even more panicked right now. Because I’m hearing from two sources familiar with this that as early as tomorrow Rick Grenell, the Acting Director of National Intelligence, could reveal even more documents shedding light on the Russian probe of President Trump and how Schiff and other investigators knew for a long time there was no collusion even as they were saying they had direct evidence there was… There’s a second set of documents that Rick Grenell who now has the job Clapper had brought to the Department of Justice today in a satchel… They say as early as tomorrow we may learn the contents.
