Last week, Acting DNI Rick Grenell declassified the list of individuals and delivered it to the DOJ. It was then unclear if the list would be made public. The DOJ said that they had no intention of releasing the names. DNI Grenell then sent The List to Senator Grassley(R-IA) and Senator Ron Johnson(R-WI), who then released it to the public.

Grenell appeared to have delivered those files to the DOJ last week. The declassified list showed recipients who “may have received Lt. Gen Flynn’s identity in response to a request processed between 8 November 2016 and 31 January 2017 to unmask an identity that had been generically referred to in an NSA foreign intelligence report,” the document, obtained by Fox News, read.

“Each individual was an authorized recipient of the original report and the unmasking was approved through NSA’s standard process, which includes a review of the justification for the request,” the document said. “Only certain personnel are authorized to submit unmasking requests into the NSA system. In this case, 16 authorized individuals requested unmasking for [REDACTED] different NSA intelligence reports for select identified principals.” The document added: “While the principals are identified below, we cannot confirm hey saw the unmasked information. This response does not include any requests outside of the specified time-frame.”

The list revealed that then-U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power made unmasking requests seven times between Nov. 30, 2016 and Jan. 11, 2017. The list revealed that Clapper made three requests from Dec. 2, 2016 through Jan. 7, 2017; that Brennan made two requests, one on Dec. 14 and one on Dec. 15, 2016. Comey also made a request on Dec. 15, 2016. On Jan. 5, 2017, McDonough made one request, and on Jan. 12, 2017, then-Vice President Biden made one request.

This comes at a really, really bad time as it was just yesterday morning that Democrat Hack Turned Serious Journalist™ George Stephanopoulos asked Sleepy Joe about this very thing and he flip-flopped on his response on live television.

Senator Rand Paul(R-KY) is on an absolute tear after the list was released:

Get ready, folks! Durham is still conducting his investigation, and this thing ain’t over yet!

It’s gonna get good…
