Donald Trump has been under surveillance during his political campaign by Susan Rice under Obama’s presidency. Although she didn’t admit it, it’s true. Rice also unmasked some of Trump’s associates for political reasons, which is illegal to do. Now, the former President Obama and his administration got some bad news. The House Intelligence Committee released seven subpoenas which are related to Russian meddling in the presidential elections in 2016. Three of subpoenas are regarding reports in which Trump’s associates were under surveillance and had their names unmasked.

Barack Hussein Obama got some bad news on Wednesday when the House Intelligence Committee issued seven subpoenas related to his unmasking scandal.
The Gateway Pundit reported that the subpoenas are related to the illegal unmasking of political opponents by the Obama administration. People close to the matter say this is a sign that the House’s investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election is ramping up in scope and intensity.Four of the subpoenas are related to the Russia investigation while the other three are related to questions about how and why the names of associates of President Donald Trump were unredacted and distributed within classified reports by Obama administration officials during the transition between administrations. In regards to the unmasking, the committee issued subpoenas to the National Security Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency for information.Republicans on the committee have spent the last few months calling for an investigation into why the names of Trump campaign officials became exposed in classified intelligence reports based off intelligence community intercepts.
“As part of our ongoing investigation into Russian active measures during the 2016 campaign, today we approved subpoenas for several individuals for testimony, personal documents and business records,” Reps. Michael Conaway, R-Texas, and Adam Schiff, D-California, the co-leaders of the House investigation, said in a statement.
“We hope and expect that anyone called to testify or provide documents will comply with that request, so that we may gain all the information within the scope of our investigation. We will continue to pursue this investigation wherever the facts may lead,” they added.
The investigation continues. Some of the subpoenas are directed to the CIA, the NSA, and the FBI. While the NSA has been very cooperative, the same cannot be said about the CIA and FBI. They didn’t really respond so that’s why they got subpoenas.
