Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has released a list of names of Obama administration officials who purportedly requested to “unmask” the identity of Michael Flynn during the presidential transition period.
The list features top figures including then-Vice President Joe Biden, then-FBI Director James Comey and intelligence chiefs John Brennan and James Clapper. It also included Obama’s then-chief of staff.
“I declassified the enclosed document, which I am providing to you for your situational awareness,” Grenell wrote to GOP senators in sending along the list.
