Barr’s Unmasking Probe Reveals Nothing Substantial

The federal prosecutor Billy Barr tapped to investigate whether Obama administration officials improperly requested the “unmasking” of Trump allies during the 2016 election has concluded his probe.

Barr appointed U. S. Attorney John Bash to review whether there was wrongdoing by the Obama administration when requesting identities of those whose names were redacted in intelligence reports. The unmasking of those names eventually led to Michael Flynn.

Bash reportedly turned over his findings to Billy Barr who decided not to release a public report on the findings of no “substantive wrongdoing.”

Bash announced that he would be leaving the Justice Department on October 5 without mention of the unmasking probe, in which no criminal charges were made.
