    Whoda thunk it?

    CNN claims:

    Acting intelligence chief has declassified names of Obama officials who 'unmasked' Flynn

    Washington (CNN)
    Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has declassified a list of names of former Obama administration officials who allegedly requested the "unmasking" of Donald Trump's first national security adviser Michael Flynn's identity, a senior ODNI official confirmed to CNN Tuesday.

    The list could be released at any time by the Department of Justice but DOJ has not said whether or when that may happen.

    The ODNI official declined to say how many people were on the list but CNN has previously reported that there were "multiple requests" for Flynn's identity to be revealed between the 2016 presidential election and Trump's inauguration in January 2017.

    The revelation of Flynn's identity is also among the matters under investigation by John Durham, the Connecticut prosecutor whom Barr appointed to look into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation.

    You know, it's one thing to try to undermine a presidential election......but to think these folks did this because they DIDN'T get Hillary Clinton is mind boggling. :l :l :l

    He needed to be able to report to his handlers.

    Looks like they were after Flynn well before Trump entered the picture...

    Flynn had threatened to revamp/reorganize the entire intelligence community. That terrified a LOT of worthless people. He should get a chance to.

    Flynn was abjectly opposed to the Obama administration's Iran policy.

    From the above posts it sounds like Obama was trying to cover his backside while attempting to overthrow a righteously elected president.

    Isn’t that what they do in Africa and other third world-ish countries? Like maybe Kenya perhaps?

    I don't know if Obama was in on coup, but the lower minions had a lot to lose. Funny thing is they lost it anyway. Others clearly where out to stop Trump.

    Of greater import, was that Flynn was questioning aspects that was leading him to think they were spying on the Trump administration.

    He was far too dangerous for them.
