Sen. Rand Paul says ‘two dozen Obama’ officials seeking to ‘unmask’ Flynn is ‘crazy,’ calls for reform

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., on Saturday called the requests for “unmasking” Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by a large number of Obama officials “crazy” and called for reform, saying the process is a way to skirt the Constitution.

“This ‘unmasking’ process, it’s about bad actors, we had bad actors Joe Biden and the inner circle of Obama, I think snooping for political dirt and trying to damage their political opponent,” Paul said on “Watters’ World” Saturday. “But it’s worse than that, ‘unmasking’ is so rampant that it’s done by the thousands by all administrations. But it’s a backdoor way around the Constitution.”

Several top Obama administration officials had purportedly requested to “unmask” the identity of the former national security adviser, according to a list of names from the controversial process made public on Wednesday.
