Sens. 'Concerned' Surveillance Of Trump Preceded Crossfire Hurricane

Sens. 'Concerned' Surveillance Of Trump Preceded Crossfire Hurricane”

Flynn himself told Mueller's office that he left off the sanctions topic in a summary sent to the Trump transition team documenting the late 2016 Kislyak call because, in the words of Mueller's report, he believed "it could be perceived as getting in the way of the Obama Administration's foreign policy". The majority of requests occurred before Flynn's communications with Kislyak on December 29.

The Washington Post reports that the former Trump administration official's name was never actually "masked" in the FBI's report on their conversation, but Flynn was still "unmasked" by Obama administration officials regardless.

The development comes as former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice and other Democrats called for transcripts of Flynn's conversations with Kislyak to be released. No defense lawyer for General Flynn has been allowed to hear the recording or see the transcript.

Parts of the conversations has been publicly reported.

"From a national security perspective, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason we can not share information fully as it relates to Russia", Rice wrote while the administration was conducting secret surveillance on USA citizens in the Trump campaign and transition team.

Newly unclassified paperwork reveal that Rice's declare couldn't have been farther from the reality.

Based on Rice's partially redacted email, it is evident that the Obama administration had reservations about sensitive information possibly leaking to the Russian Ambassador Kislyak by way of Michael Flynn.

Obama asked if Comey was saying the National Security Council should avoid passing sensitive information related to Russian Federation to Flynn.

Obama asked Comey if he was saying the National Security Council should not share sensitive intelligence about Russian Federation with Flynn, to which Comey replied: "Potentially".

The memo shows Comey pointed out that the "volume" of Flynn's contacts was unusual, but also noted that Flynn hadn't passed on anything classified.

"You can not have a law enforcement agency have people within it that break the law. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book".

Gaetz additionally took goal at an e mail Rice wrote to herself on January 20th, memorializing a gathering that occurred weeks earlier during which she careworn that then-FBI Director James Comey assured Obama that they'd run issues "by the book". Comey said he would, ' Rice concludes.

I began by asking about the allegations leveled today by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes that Trump transition officials, including the president, may have been swept up in surveillance of foreigners at the end of the Obama administration.

Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell declassified the document, as well as the unmasking information.

One Trump ally concluded that the memo proves that Flynn was being targeted by Obama' inner sanctum. He said he did so because Flynn was not truthful with Vice President Mike Pence about his own Russian Federation contacts.

The leaked memo immediately set off a clash in Washington, with Trump tearing into Biden, his presumed 2020 opponent, for unmasking, which he connected to the prosecution of Flynn, which he termed a disgrace. And by the way the Federal Bureau of Investigation said he didn't lie, ' Trump said at the White House Wednesday.

Names in the declassified report of White House officials targeting Flynn include top intelligence chiefs, including Obama CIA Director John Brennan, Obama Department of National Intelligence Director James Clapper, former Obama Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, and former Vice President Joe Biden.
