""#Unmasking" probe commissioned by #Barr concludes without charges or any public report" 🤷‍♂️😤🙄🖕…
"Even if it ultimately produced no results of consequence, legal analysts said, it allowed Trump and other conservatives to say Obama-era officials were under scrutiny, as long as the case stayed active."…
"From early on in the Trump administration, some GOP lawmakers have sought to investigate and highlight Obama-era unmasking requests, believing them to be inappropriate. The effort was initially pushed in part by Rep. Devin Nunes..." 🤦‍♂️🙄…

News Analysis🔎The @EpochTimes has so far counted 85 “Unusual” instances for the case of Lt. @GenFlynn, which has been filled with contradictions, falsehoods, apparent blunders, extraordinary moves, and strange coincidences. (Thread👇)…
The case of @GenFlynn is inevitably heading toward its conclusion.

While District Judge Emmet Sullivan is trying to keep it going, there’s only so much he can do since there’s nobody left to prosecute the case after the #DOJ dropped it last month.…
In the latest developments, the #WashingtonDC appeals court set a hearing in the case on June 12, while the #DOJ’s solicitor general himself, as well as 5 of his deputies, urged the court to order the lower-court judge to accept the case dismissal.

1.Providing some context to recent discovery of DOJ #USEmbassyRome official associated w/ Italian #Spygate #unmasking also involved in #milanrendition case.

In unusual move, DOJ Rome official directly contacts Milan Probation court about me w/out privacy waiver..
2.The court issues gag order & non-publication of memoir if violated, prison. (Despite EU free speech violation)

Here’s why. As in .@GenFlynn case, @CIA leadership & Italian gov (not Italian intel) feared publication of exculpatory evidence withheld during #milanrendition trial
3. During 2006 investigation stage the Italian Gov & Italian prosecutor “agreed” on masking of senior CIA HQS officers (authorized rendition) whose IDs were disclosed in testimony of Italian who had flipped. (translated from Italian court doc)

Then in 2009

But @RichardGrenell clearly states names of senior officials who requested #unmasking does not jeopardize sources or methods. We filed #FOIA requests today for @JMadisonProject & @joshgerstein for all officials' names from 2016 to now who requested unmaskings. In 10 days we sue.
Today we learned @StateDept denied our clients' expedited processing. The ten day period elapses on Friday, June 5th. Congratulations @SecPompeo, you just earned yourself yet another #FOIA lawsuit!

WaPo (@nakashimae) explodes myth in #Obamagate

Sen. Graham asks: who unmasked Flynn?!

WSJ editorial board insinuates: Biden unmasking request maybe linked to leak!


WaPo: "Flynn’s name was never redacted."

There was nothing to unmask!…
2. WaPo also undercuts attempt by National Review's Andy McCarthy to revive #Obamagate.

McCarthy's made up theory: CIA not FBI intercepted Flynn-Kislyak call.

WaPo: "It was the FBI...that wiretapped Kislyak’s calls and created the summary and transcript"

cc: @AshaRangappa_
3. This should help put nail in #unmasking brouhaha:

"When the FBI circulated [report], they included Flynn’s name from the beginning…There were therefore no requests for the unmasking of that information"

— former senior official

@SallyQYates & McCabe testimony confirms that

.@AshaRangappa_ nails errors in Andy McCarthy's attempt to resurrect Obamagate.👇

Other items:

1. Larger point: McCarthy now admits NSA #unmasking list has NOTHING to do with Kislyak-Flynn call.

2. Smaller point: McCarthy overlooks Flynn 302 which points to Kislyak being in DC
2. Andy McCarthy's admission in National Review:

"It appears that not a single listed unmasking [in NSA list] pertains to the December 29 Kislyak call."


Grenell's #UnmaskingFlynn list was a propaganda ruse.
3. One more on the smaller point:

"The calls were picked up as part of routine electronic surveillance of Russian officials and agents in the United States, which is one of the FBI’s responsibilities, according to the U.S. officials."…

Obama told Sally Yates about the Flynn-Kislyak call during an Oval Office meeting on January 5, 2017. Thanks to #Unmasking declass by Grenell today, we know that Denis McDonough, Obama’s chief of staff, made an unmasking request of Flynn that same day:…
“There are no other unmasking requests between Flynn’s call on December 29, 2016 and the January 5, 2017 meeting.

But that might not have been the only leak tied to McDonough. Mary McCord testified that ‘in theory’ the leak to the Wash Post came from the Obama White House.”
The illegal leaker of the Flynn call to David Ignatius has never been charged. Could it have been McDonough?…

NEW: Sources confirm to Fox News that acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell has declassified the names of Obama officials behind the #Unmasking of #MichaelFlynn

Sources say documents related to that process are expected to be released soon
Sources tell Fox News that the documents, when released, will be released by the @TheJusticeDept, not ODNI.
The reason for that, per colleague @GillianHTurner:
The intel community has no authority over its own information when it comes to releasing to the public. Any US government intel the is released to the public lawfully must first undergo review either by POTUS or DOJ

Analysis🔎by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork

In a newly unredacted footnote from the @JusticeOIG #IGReport on #FISAabuse, the urgency behind the @FBI obtaining a #FISA warrant on Trump campaign adviser @CarterWPage becomes clear. (Thread👇)…
In the #IGReport, #Horowitz detailed a last-minute flurry of activity that transpired ahead of the issuance of the @CarterWPage #FISA, including a possible intervention from then-Deputy @FBI Director McCabe, to push a seemingly reluctant #DOJ official, Stuart Evans, for approval.
“Footnote 276” was initially redacted in the #IGReport, but was declassified, among other footnotes, following a request from @SenRonJohnson and @ChuckGrassley.

In the declassified footnote, IG #Horowitz elaborated on the urgency behind #LisaPage’s communications with #McCabe:

Ok I’m buggin out over the last couple Q drops and @ReIncarnatedET insight ➡️ a,b,C,D,(e) comms.


Now just before, #Q dropped ⬇️

Exculpatory: A description of evidence in a criminal trial that serves to justify, excuse, or introduce a reasonable doubt about the defendant's alleged actions or intentions
And after @ReIncarnatedET shoutout, last drop 3544 is about (E)pstein

Consider the highlighted portions of what his attorney says specifically

“If he goes on trial, everyone he’s been in contact with will ultimately be fair game”

Hey @brhodes why did the @FBI deny your security clearance? Looks like it worked out though, Obama just pushed you right through to top secret clearance so you could get to work on the #IranDeal meanwhile all #MSM wants to talk about it Kushner’s security clearance🔍 #Hello2018
Of course @johnpodesta knew, well someone turned a blind eye would be oh so curious to know if the #FBI ever changed their mind and if so, who's name was on the report #wikileaks #ticktock…
WAIT, BEN?! Was blaming #Benghazi on a YouTube video your idea!? You were the head speech writer, you were the foreign policy expert. Look at this garbage you wrote yet #SusanRice and HRC marched right out and parroted it all. #NeverForget #TickTock #BenRhodes
