The day has arrived. Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has declassified who wanted to unmask Michael Flynn during the transition period, which was part of the scheme to ensnare him in a perjury trap set up by the FBI. Flynn had spoken with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. We know this because the call was leaked to the press. This was part of the long campaign of coordinated leaks to get the Russian collusion circus going. Reportedly, Obama gave marching orders for how he wanted the FBI’s probe to be protected once he left, preferably with the goal of preventing the incoming Trump administration from finding out about it. And based on these news documents, former President Obama, along with former Vice President Joe Biden, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former CIA Director John Brennan, all wanted Flynn’s name unmasked. Katie has more:
The list of Obama administration officials who requested the unmasking of General Michael Flynn during the transition period between the November 2016 election and President Donald Trump's January 20, 2017 inauguration has been released. Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell declassified the list late last week and it has been published by Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson.
Here are some of them:
-Vice President Joe Bden - One request January 12, 2017
-FBI Director James Comey - One request December 15, 2016
-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper - Three requests
-CIA Director John Brennan - Two requests - December 14-15, 2016
-U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power - 7 requests
-Obama Chief of Staff Dennis McDonough - One request January 5, 2017
Yes, Obama appears to be a starting QB in fanning the flames of this heinous scheme within the DOJ. Besides Flynn, the Justice Department has spied on the Trump campaign, sending informants to glean information from campaign officials under false pretenses and then relaying that information to the third party. And all of this was due to one piece of biased political opposition research, the Trump dossier, which was compiled by an ex-British spy, Christopher Steele, and funded by the Democrats and the Clinton campaign. It was thoroughly debunked with reports from the Mueller probe and DOJ IG report on FISA abuses. The dossier was cited as credible evidence, despite never being verified, in securing a spy warrant against former Trump campaign official Carter Page. Given the breadth of this scheme, it’s no shocker I guess that Obama and his goons were in the driver’s seat. There were strong inclinations, as anything to the contrary would suggest an Obama executive that has truly gone rogue. Nope. We now have confirmation that yes, while the Obama executive went off the reservation, it was done on purpose.
The DOJ’s motion to dismiss the charges against Flynn showed that the FBI knew they had nothing on the former national security adviser. There was no evidence of collusion and the agents who interviewed him said they felt he didn’t lie to them. Still, Comey and his crew proceeded to railroad the man because by this point, the DOJ, now hopelessly political, needed a scalp. They were going to get Flynn no matter what. There a lot of dirty laundry being aired right now. Oh, and it gets worse, even with the Mueller probe definitely saying there was no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, why did they continue this wild goose chase. It seems after Trump fired Comey in May of 2017, the DOJ needed to give some aura of legitimacy to their trainwreck Russia collusion probe, as Wall Street Journalist Kimberley Strassel aptly noted. We were taken for a ride and then Mueller decided to keep it going. And all the while even the most partisan, anti-Trump Democrats, like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), already knew there was no evidence of collusion in their respective investigation. If they didn’t have anything, then Mueller sure as hell had nothing. It was a hoax. People’s lives were destroyed. And the American people are seeing the lengths at which the DOJ/FBI can ruin you and what happens when Democrats see their grip on power being lost. The tantrums they throw are rife with illegality and corruption. What else is new? And now, with Biden's name on the list, the Trump campaign has responded, asking it's time to get to the bottom of what Joe Biden knew about the plot to entrap Flynn. Brad Parscale, campaign manager for the Trump 2020 re-election campaign, wants answers:
Joe Biden’s limp claim that he doesn’t know anything about the railroading of Gen. Michael Flynn just got even more unbelievable. Biden is listed among the Obama administration officials who requested the unmasking of Flynn. We already knew Biden was briefed on the Flynn case before President Trump took office and now we know that he wanted Flynn unmasked. Americans have a right to know the depth of Biden’s involvement in the setup of Gen. Flynn to further the Russia collusion hoax.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden sought to unmask General Michael Flynn.— Ed Rollins (@EdRollins) May 13, 2020
Yet just days ago, he said he knew nothing about the investigation.
Unmasking an American citizen is illegal, so it’s no wonder Biden has been hidin’!
