Flynn's name was never 'masked' in FBI report on phone call with Russian

Source: NBC

Republicans have questioned why Flynn's name was "unmasked" or revealed, but it turns out it was never masked in the FBI report in the first place.

In a blow to GOP efforts to create a cloud of scandal around so-called "unmasking," two sources familiar with the matter tell NBC News that then-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's name was never redacted from the FBI intelligence report about his conversation with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.

Flynn has admitted lying to the FBI about a phone call with then Amb. Sergey Kislyak. The lack of masking was first reported in the Washington Post.

Flynn's name was unmasked in other intelligence reports about other conversations he had with foreigners, but not the one about the Dec. 29 phone call that got him in legal trouble, the sources said. That call with Kislyak was monitored by the FBI under a FISA warrant covering Kislyak, as is standard practice, current and former officials have said. Many former ambassadors and foreign officials working in the U.S. are monitored by the FBI as part of routine counterintelligence inquiries.

Simply being Obama is a scandal.

as a foreign agent and gave false information to the State Dept.

5. Flynn's name was NOT masked in a phone call with a Russian.

This article has nothing to do with Turkish officials?

The GOP-fascist party was/is trying to make hay by wildly claiming that Obama unmasked Flynn's name improperly. When in fact, the name was never masked at all.

Of course, Flynn is a traitor. And part of Flynn's blood money deal with Turkey was Flynn being willing to kidnap Fethullah GŁlen in Pennsylvania? and send him back to Turkey, where he'd probably be killed.

Anyway, kick, because this reporting pops the fascist propganda balloon about improper unmasking of Flynn's name. Or at least it should pop that balloon, but we not longer live in a democracy, we live in Putinland.

9. She was not unmasked either. She was illegally revealed while faithfully performing her job.

"unmasking" refers to the subject of an investigation.
