Government information leaks

A declassified document with names of President Barack Obama administration officials who made requests for unmasking of Michael Flynn's name is photographed Wednesday, May 13, 2020. In 2016, Obama administration officials received intelligence reports that were concerning, but incomplete. Surveillance of Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. revealed he had interacted with an unnamed American who may have been undercutting efforts to pressure Vladimir Putin’s government. Using a common process known as “unmasking,” they asked intelligence agencies to reveal the American’s name. It was Flynn, an adviser to President-elect Donald Trump. The document was declassified by acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell. (AP Photo/Jon Elswick)
