Bombshell report: Fox News says Congress knows ID of ‘senior’ intel source unmasking US citizens to embarrass Trump

Powered by Topple

A game of politics is being played by high-level intelligence sources out to embarrass President Donald Trump and his administration.

…and Congressional investigators have the name of at least one of the sources.

That’s according to Fox News senior correspondent Adam Housley, who is reporting that the unmasking of private U.S. citizens began before Trump was the GOP nominee and was done for political purposes that have nothing to do with national security.

“The main issue in this case, is not only the unmasking of these names of private citizens, but the spreading of these names for political purposes that have nothing to do with national security or an investigation into Russia’s interference in the U.S. election,” a congressional source close to the investigation told Fox News.

Housley said his sources have grown “frustrated with the politicalization of our intelligence agencies,” stressing that these individuals are “not Trump people.”

What’s more, Congressional investigators know the name of at least one person who was unmasking the names of private citizens and this person is said to be “very well-known, very high up, very senior, in the intelligence world [and] is not in the FBI.”

In a show of just how political it all has become, Housley added context to the manufactured outrage coming from Democrats over House Intelligence Committee chairman going to the White House to view classified documents.

Documents that led to the realization that members of the Trump transitions team were caught up in surveillance under the Obama administration.

Fox News also reported that Nunes was aware of the unmasking controversy in January, long before Trump tweeted in March that then-President Barack Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower during the 2016 election.

The only safe place to see related documents without compromising the sources’ identities was at the old executive office building on White House grounds.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer raised “serious” concerns about whether there was an “organized and widespread effort by the Obama administration to use and leak highly sensitive intelligence information for political purposes.”

His remarks came Friday in response to former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas suggesting on MSNBC that her colleagues at the time tried to gather material on Trump team contacts with Russia.
