‘Matter of concern’: Liberal law professor hits Obama administration over Flynn unmasking memo

Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley responded with concern to the release of a newly unclassified memo documenting the list of Obama administration officials who requested that former Trump national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn be unmasked.

“It should be a matter of concern that the Obama Administration conducted such surveillance and investigation of the opposing party with no strong evidence of collusion,” Turley, a self-proclaimed liberal who served as a witness during the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, said in a Twitter thread. “The unmasking requests only magnify concerns over the use of national security means for such investigations.”

“Joe Biden was one of those who unmasked Flynn during the investigation,” Turley added. “Biden was just on the air first denying any knowledge of the investigation and then saying ‘I was aware that…they asked for an investigation, but that’s all I know about it.’ Unmasking is fairly uncommon.”

Yes, it is a “matter of concern” isn’t it?
