STATEMENT BY CONSERVATIVE PARTY CHAIRMAN GERARD KASSAR ON OBAMA-BIDEN ‘UNMASKING OF GEN. FLYNN
Brooklyn, NY – “An outgoing vice president has no business unmasking an individual named in a raw intelligence report, particularly when that person has served his country honorably for decades and is the presumptive National Security Advisor for an incoming president of the opposing political party.
“The fact that we are only learning this now demands the attention of the American people, regardless of political affiliation. Seven unmasking requests were made by top Obama Administration officials between November 30, 2016 and Jan. 11, 2017, when President Donald Trump took office, in a clear attempt to find or manufacture dirt on General Michael Flynn, a prominent Trump supporter and advisor during the 2016 campaign. That speaks volumes.
“So does Mr. Biden’s blatant mistruth this week in denying that he was aware of an unmasking in which he was intimately involved. Of course he was aware — he was part of it.
“The more one looks at what happened to General Flynn, the clearer his railroading by leading Democrat operatives becomes. A full and immediate investigation is required. The American public needs to know why the Democratic nominee for president just got caught lying.”
