The claims against members of the Obama administration for unmasking members of the Trump campaign prior to his election as President. Unmasking involves the uncovering of the names of American citizens who are involved in phone calls with foreign nationals who are under surveillance.The Americans are not being investigated so their names are supposed to be kept secret except in extraordinary circumstances.
Certain government officials can request the so-called unmasking, but must have a valid reason. Apparently no such reasons existed when Obama’s UN Ambassador Samantha Powers made the requests for over 260 calls involving members of the Trump campaign. Susan Rice and others working for Obama made similar requests.
