Provided by USA Today: The investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election — and President Trump's counterattack against surveillance and leaking — has brought a new term into the American political lexicon. "Unmasking." Until now, the process for revealing information about U.S. citizens in intelligence reports was almost completely obscure outside of the intelligence community. But the issue has taken on new importance since House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes alleged that the Obama administration may have improperly identified Trump transition officials in classified reports he had access to — reports that later turned out to be provided to him by the Trump White House. Here's what we know about the hows and whys of unmasking:

The Stage Is Now Set

from The Gray Area:

The stage is now set for one of the next major political battles of the Trump era, the Durham investigations.

Attorney General William Barr assigned federal prosecutor John Durham to lead an investigation into the improper handling of the Russia investigation, unmasking of American citizens and spying on the Trump campaign. People on the right & left have been awaiting results of this investigation since April, 2019.

Last weekend, Republicans starting alluding to impending criminal indictments of people in connection with this investigation.

Today, Democrats begin their defense - accusing foreign political interference, disinformation and attacks on members of the US Congress and demanding an FBI briefing to determine what is to be announced before the indictments are announced.

The stage is now set. Republicans accusing Democrats, specific Democrats, and other bureaucrats, of a coup to overturn the 2016 election of a duly elected President. Democrats saying this is nothing more than Trump, his AG and the Republicans getting foreign governments to interfere with the 2020 election. Democrats will allude to the Russia connection from 2016, the impeachment for the Ukraine affair, etc.

This should be something! Stay tuned!

It may even be an event of historic proportion for this country!
