🚨 POLL: Did Obama commit the “biggest political crime in history”?
Grenell declassifies names of Obama officials who ‘unmasked’ Flynn, according to Fox News.
Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell decided to declassify this information about Obama administration officials who were behind “Obamagate,” as President Trump refers to the scandal.
Their names could soon be made public, a source confirmed to Fox News, but we currently do not have this information. A new round of documents is expected.
There is one question remaining: Is former President Barack Obama’s name is on the list of officials involved? Again, this information isn’t known yet, according to Fox.
The Wall Street Journal, which reported on the looming release overnight, cited a senior government official who called Grenell’s move unprecedented, as it came just days after the Justice Department dropped its case against Flynn, President Trump’s first national security adviser. It is now up to Attorney General William Barr to release the names publicly.
Unmasking occurs after U.S. citizens’ conversations are incidentally picked up in conversations with foreign officials who are being monitored by the intelligence community. The U.S. citizens’ identities are supposed to be protected if their participation is incidental and no wrongdoing is suspected. However, officials can determine the U.S. citizens’ names through a process that is supposed to safeguard their rights.
Officials in the Obama administration have acknowledged that they unmasked some Americans in intelligence reports, but insisted that their reasons were legitimate. Susan Rice, Obama’s former national security adviser, said she unmasked the identities of Trump officials during the transition, according to ABC News. She has denied leaking their identities or being politically motivated.
“The biggest political crime in American history, by far!” President Trump wrote to Twitter.
Trump retweeted Buck Sexton’s message, which read, “If you read a news story about some European country where, after a fair election, the outgoing president used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration, you’d be appalled.”
“It happened here, and half the country thinks it was fine,” he added.

With the Russian collusion hoax left in shambles by the newly revealed documents showing that Obama had involvement in the failed coup, it’s payback time for those who tried to nullify the 63 million American votes for President Trump.
The Department of Justice dropped its case against retired national security advisor General Michael Flynn, because of the revelation of a set-up by none other than Obama’s corrupt FBI.
After Flynn’s exoneration, things got worse, when House Democrat Adam Schiff was forced to release transcripts showing that collusion was a fraud.

Commentary and Opinion from Trending Politics:
Now that the worm has finally turned, it is Mr. Obama who has some serious explaining to do, especially regarding a White House meeting weeks before Trump’s inauguration during which the plot was finalized.
A clearer picture is emerging of the drastic steps that were taken to accomplish Obama’s goal in the following weeks and months. Shortly thereafter, high-level operatives began intensely leaking selective information supporting a supposed Russia-Trump conspiracy theory, the incoming National Security Advisor was ambushed, and the incoming Attorney General was forced to recuse himself from oversight of investigations of President Trump. At each major point in the operation, explosive media leaks were a key strategy in the operation to take down Trump.
Not only was information on Russia not fully shared with the incoming Trump team, as Obama directs, the leaks and ambushes made the transition chaotic, scared quality individuals away from working in the administration, made effective governance almost impossible, and materially damaged national security.
Adding to Obama’s woes was acting DNI Grenell’s delivery of a mysterious satchel to Attorney General Barr as well as a Fox News report that the contents include a “smoking gun” that could lead to the appointment of a special prosecutor.
The reality is that Obama and this intelligence commissars engaged in the unthinkable abuse of the nation’s anti-terrorist surveillance apparatus in order to spy on and then frame a duly-elected president as a Kremlin sleeper agent so as to remove him from office.
This is not a normal practice in a functional democracy but Mr. Obama and his shills always loved to boast that he was a transformation leader – what they failed to mention is that the transformation was to bend the U.S.A. toward totalitarianism.
Things are going to get really ugly now that Obama and his fellow rats are cornered and at this point, they will burn America to the ground if that’s what it takes to escape justice.

If you are wondering why Obama leaked audio of himself regarding Flynn, my latest on him being implicated in the operation might explain. https://t.co/2qgNveuYXq
